Bobby Adam on Patrol

Some of the issues faced daily by our bobbies.

MLB in the newsEvening Standard

A drizzly night in Belgravia and the streets are deserted. A cab pulls up before Eaton Square’s stuccoed columns. The passenger in the back is metres from her front door — but drenched in De Beers and toting a £10,000 handbag, she doesn’t feel safe walking the distance alone. Thankfully she and her neighbours have their own immaculately turned-out private ‘policeman’ on speed dial to escort them safely home, an ex-copper or soldier who keeps an eye on their properties all day and who, should an ‘incident’ occur, has the power to arrest the perpetrator and launch his or her own investigation.

The country’s first ‘private police force’ is investigating hundreds of crimes that regular officers are too busy to look at. A firm led by former Scotland Yard senior officers has successfully prosecuted more than 400 criminals and is now carrying out murder inquiries. TM Eye, which has a 100 per cent conviction rate, is thought to bring more private prosecutions than any organisation besides the RSPCA. The company, the country’s first de-facto private police force, is operating against a backdrop of rising crime rates and police budget cuts.

Common questions and answers

  • Can the ‘Bobbies’ arrest people?

    Any person can arrest a person committing an indictable offence or who has committed an indictable offence (The Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 Section 24A as amended by The Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005). The ‘Bobbies’ have training and experience to enable them to gather evidence and where required detain a suspect who has or is committing a crime.

  • If I am a victim of crime how can MLB assist?

    Your local ‘Bobby’ will attend immediately to ensure your safety and security. They will secure exhibits and forensics for police. Where required an experienced career detective from TM Eye will be allocated and attend to carry out a thorough investigation in support of the police and will manage the interaction with police to ensure every investigative opportunity is followed up.

  • Can MLB prosecute offenders?

    Yes. MLB is supported by TM Eye, the UK’s most successful private prosecutor. TM Eye detectives will gather evidence and build a criminal case. Where the police or CPS will not proceed and evidence exists that ‘beyond reasonable doubt’ and it is in the public interest, TM Eye will prosecute on behalf of the client in the criminal court.

  • How will I contact my ‘Bobby’ if needed?

    All ‘Bobbies’ are tracked in live time. A client can see where they are at all times. All clients have a direct mobile number that will be answered immediately by their local Bobby. Clients can use FaceTime, text or WhatsApp to ‘chat’ or pass information. MLB management monitor all communication and will supervise and respond where necessary. MLB use twitter, Facebook, Instagram and their web site to pass information to clients and the local residents.
