Luke Athens


Licenced since 1996 as a private inquiry and commercial agent at Fairfield Local Court, Luke Athens commenced his career as an insurance investigator conducting surveillance and factual investigations for the first 3 years in the industry whilst studying Technical Surveillance Counter Measures in America.

Luke then branched out into T.S.C.M once he completed his studies (Accredited T.S.C.M and forensic analyst) then opened his first business providing insurance investigations, electronic debugging, security risk management, infidelity investigations, debt collections and skip tracing.

As technology evolved, Luke then decided to invest heavily into technology to assist with his investigations, including computer/telephone forensic investigations and electronic de-bugging equipment. Luke’s technical knowledge has now become his area of expertise across many facets of investigations.
