A few words from our founder


I’ve spent a long career investigating criminal activity and offering proactive education to would-be victims. In a perfect world, there would be no victims, but such is not the case.

In dealing with the challenges life offers us, I’ve found the three most empowering words are COMMUNICATION, EDUCATION and EXPERIENCE, and the team I’ve brought together at John Cooke Investigations has all three of these. There are no investigators I place more trust in than the John Cooke team.

Know that when you connect with us, you’re connecting with discretion and skill, where your confidentiality comes first and foremost. As owner and founder, I guarantee this.

Trust in me, as business and corporate leaders have time and time again, and put your trust in my team at John Cooke Investigations.
