Company profile

ADVANCED was established in 1981 by Michael J. Campbell, Ex-CIB Senior Sergeant (New Zealand Police) as a professional agency to provide Investigations and Security Consultation to Corporate, Legal Government and Private clients.

The company has recently undergone major restructuring and specialisation.

  • Michael Campbell continues in the role of Managing Director and owner of the business.
  • A new generation of Investigators and Surveillance Operatives have been recruited and trained with the latest technology and in modern investigative techniques.
ADVANCED also has access to professionals from a wide network of highly qualified, motivated, former New Zealand Police Detectives. These individuals contract their services, which are managed by us and have been heavily vetted by ADVANCED prior to being offered work. We assure you that our team members are all former senior members of their profession with years of investigative and security experience with the Criminal Investigation Branch of the New Zealand Police.
The difference between the investigation services offered by ADVANCED and other private investigations businesses is that between us, we have over 44 years of operational and command experience in Police and Private investigation work. We believe we are only as good as our last job – we offer “REAL EXPERIENCE – REAL RESULTS”.
ADVANCED has two offices in Auckland – an administration base on level 27 of the Pricewaterhouse Tower in the CBD, and on the North Shore.
