The SENEX private detective Agency accompany many officials working in the public sector. Here is an overview of the agency’s areas of expertise :
Municipalities and local authorities
Municipalities and local authorities sometimes have to deal with the need for investigation that they can not assume internally, either because their means are devolved to public security, rather to investigation, or because they do not have internal skills.
These needs are often punctual and municipalities do not have the means or the need to employ human resources for this purpose.
Also, it is possible to contact the SENEX Private Detective Agency to carry out investigation missions. These missions may concern a disturbance to public order, or fraud of any kind.
The SENEX agency has employees who can quickly be mobilized throughout France. Human and material resources can be deployed for both field of investigations and financial investigations.
Employers of public servants and non-public servants of public law
Law No. 83-634 of July 13th 1983, on the rights and obligations of public servants, provides in article 25 that public servants and non-public servants
“may not engage in any gainful private activity of any kind whatsoever .“
The Council of State, supreme authority in administrative matters, had to decide on a dismissal of an official motivated by the report of a private detective.
In its judgment of July 16th 2014, it was unequivocal in the admissibility of the investigation report of a private detective:
“In the absence of any legislative provision to the contrary, the disciplinary authority responsible for establishing the facts on the basis of which it imposes a penalty on a public official may prove these facts before the administrative judge by any means. “
“The fact, for a municipality to use a private detective agency to establish that an agent exercised without authorization a private gainful activity does not reflect a failure of the municipality to its obligation of loyalty vis-à-vis his agent. “
Thus, any employer of public servant, or agent not holding public right can contact SENEX in order to prove the exercise of an illegal lucrative activity.
