Established in 2007

ci-maroon engages specialist operatives with experience and backgrounds in law enforcement, security and variety of public services.   We deploy our specialists (Investigators, Medical experts, Forensic experts, Academics, Support/Social workers, Physical Trainers … etc) according to the nature of the task in hand.

Police and other State law enforcement agencies provide essential invaluable public service.  However not all – individuals or businesses – benefit equally.

A decade plus of austerity has added to law enforcement difficulties and long term inability to meet the needs of all.  The past decade (2008 – 2018) has the number of ‘regular warranted’ UK police officers reduced by circa 20,000.  The reduced resources for police and other law enforcement agents limits focus onto given priorities, leaving no scope for investigation of hundreds of thousands of other crimes and conflicts  (e.g. refer to MPS Crime Assessment Policy announced October 2017).

“In my view, the system is not yet actually broken but it is so neglected as to be a matter of serious concern and our citizens need to be engaged in deciding how it should be repaired and improved”.  –   November 2019   Lord Blair  (Metropolitan Police Commissioner 2005 – 2008).

Early 21st Century austerity had adverse economic and social effects on a global scale; subsequent measures to recover ground then dashed – in 2020 – by effects of and reactions to Coronavirus.

It is understatement that 2021 has seen literally daily criticisms of corporate policing performance, failures to maintain standards, and media reports of significant events impacting adversely on public confidence in policing. 

When loss or harm occurs many people, home or business owners do not have time, skill or experience to investigate.  However, with input, advice and support from our specialists, we investigate and assist you with resolutions for your specific situation.  We are committed to supporting improvements in all aspects of National and International Law Enforcement and Justice.

Our services currently provided in London, SE Regions UK & Grenada

The British system of justice is complex, not only due to the constant surge of new legislation and regulations, but also as a result of the numerous organisations and agencies involved. Each adding their share of protocols, procedures and policies.

It is a challenge even for experts to maintain professional knowledge and navigate increasing bureacracy, therefore non-experts are likely to experience significant disadvantage and fail when challenging unfairness or injustice,primarily due to the range of obstacles in their path.
