…….over 50 years experience within the public and private sector
Island Investigations (Pennine) was established in 1987 by retired police officer Roy Bowden.
Over 21 years experience in the Manchester & West Yorkshire Police serving in specialist departments such as Plain Clothes, C.I.D., Burglary Squad and Murder Squad.
In 1985, during the arrest of a violent prisoner, Roy received injuries which eventually forced him to retire early from the job he loved, he decided to put his considerable experience and expertise to use in the private sector.
He was fortunate enough to have the assistance of a friend/colleague, Trevor Jones, who had been a former senior officer in the Met Flying Squad. Trevor had been successfully running his own agency in London for some years after his own retirement. Roy worked closely with Island Investigations ( Heathrow) until Trevor retired some years ago.
Over the last 33 years Roy and Island Investigations (Pennine) has gained a reputation of a high ethical and professional approach to assignments, working mainly with the criminal & civil legal profession, social services & legal departments of Local Authorities, insurance companies, large and small businesses and private individuals.
