According to French law, only a French private investigator can conduct civil and commercial investigations. Our profession is defined by the French Interior Security Code (Code de la Sécurité Intérieure) as follows :

A private investigator is a person who collects information and intelligence on behalf of a third party in order to defend their interests, without having to reveal his/her identity or the purpose of his/her mission (article L621-1).

The report of a French private investigator can be used as evidence in French courts and in any legal proceeding. For that reason, we ensure that our reports are always written in a professional non biased manner. They give a factual and detailed account of the investigation and are an important part of our mission.


As French private investigators, we are used to working with sensitive information, so we take your privacy very seriously and treat all data responsibly. Our investigations and the information you share with us are strictly confidential.


Our firm’s partners, Agathe ROBIN and Nordine BELAL are graduates of the University of Paris Panthéon Assas and are both licensed private investigators. Agathe ROBIN also has a bachelor in Criminology from Albright College (Reading, PA) and a master’s degree in Intelligence and Crime Analysis, from Saint Joseph’s University  (Philadelphia, PA).

I would thoroughly recommend RCI Detectives. I had some success of my own in researching my grandfather but some major facts illuded me. With excellent communication from the start, RCI efficiently found this information and presented it to me.

I contacted this company to ask for help in locating a family member in France. They were very helpful and polite, worked quickly, and fortunately are fluent in English!
