About Us

Our Company


Able Investigations and Enforcements are one of the leading industry authorities in a range of specialist enforcement and investigation services.

Established in 1993 we are an enforcement agency operating throughout the UK, with our head office based in Bristol . Acting quickly and professionally, we deal with matters from process serving and tracing to squatter or traveller evictions whether under Common Law or Writ of Possession.

Should you require the services of the High Court, we can arrange to have the matter transferred via our High Court Officer which will then be dealt with in-house.

Let’s not forget our specialist Public Order Enforcement Teams™, specially trained to the equivalent of Level 2 PSU training in contentious matters. Along with our Security Division, Able Investigations and Enforcement is your one stop shop.

Our People

The Team

Our Public Order Enforcement teams (POETS) are uniquely selected and can work under the harshest of conditions, which involve public order situations or contentious matters such as traveller evictions. The teams are qualified, experienced and trained to enter buildings and gain access to land to remove protesters or squatters and travellers.

Our Public Order Enforcement Team are trained to the highest of standards – equivalent to the Police Tactical Support Unit Training – level 3 (intervention including handcuffing, & Conflict management). Training is undertaken with a very experienced retired police officer & PSU trainer, with the courses following the police tactical support training manual.
