Our Legacy

Capt. Prem Kumar

Founder and Chairman

Established in 1965, Globe Detective Agency (GDA) has emerged as a stalwart in the realm of security and investigative services. With a rich legacy spanning over six decades, we have evolved from a regional entity to a globally recognized organization, consistently setting industry standards.

Planned, designed, and engineered by the late Mr. Prem Kumar, a pioneer in the field, Globe rapidly expanded from a one-man bureau to a nationwide institution with global reach over 50 years ago. At just 18, Prem Kumar, initially studying Engineering in the United States, discovered a passion for Criminology, becoming the first and sole Indian trained as a private detective in both the USA and UK.

While in Chicago, working part-time as a Hotel Detective, he showcased his innate detective skills by assisting the police in apprehending a gang of criminals, earning significant acclaim. His career trajectory shifted when he formed a close bond with Sgt. Emil Smicklas of the Chicago Police, opting for training in police detection under Smicklas’s mentorship, forsaking his engineering aspirations to become a sleuth.

Employed by the Michigan Surety Company post-training, he successfully tracked down notorious criminals, earning recognition as a distinguished detective. His accomplishments garnered widespread media coverage and international attention, leading to assignments in England and prestigious appointments in detective organizations.

Driven by patriotism, he returned to India, defying familial opposition, to pioneer private investigation in the country. His successes in high-profile cases like the “Patiala Child Murder Case,” “Mehrauli Murder Case,” and “Taxi Driver Murder Case” solidified his reputation as India’s premier private detective.

Our journey began with a commitment to delivering unparalleled solutions in private investigation and security. Over the years, we have cultivated a reputation for excellence, integrity, and innovation. From our humble beginnings, we have grown into a multifaceted agency, catering to a diverse clientele of individuals, industries, companies, and governments across borders.

In loving memory of our esteemed Managing Director, Mr. Vivek Kumar, whose sudden passing has left a void in our hearts and the fabric of our organization. He was not just a leader but a visionary, whose legacy transcended the realms of business and touched the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing him.

Embarking on his journey at the tender age of 15, Vivek shaped the course of our company’s history. As the youngest private investigation professional in India, he exhibited unparalleled passion and dedication to the organization. Groomed under the tutelage of his father, the founder of our esteemed company, Late Capt. Prem Kumar, he imbibed the values of integrity, diligence, and compassion, becoming the cornerstone of his leadership.

Throughout his decades-long career, Vivek played a pivotal role in steering our organization to greater heights. Managing a vast network of branches across the country, he ensured that each one was not just well-managed but also had a sense of purpose and belonging. His remarkable ability to connect with people from all walks of life, treating each individual with equal respect and empathy, earned him the admiration and loyalty of colleagues, staff, and stakeholders alike.

Beyond his professional achievements, Vivek was a beacon of warmth, kindness, and humility. He touched the lives of many with his generosity, wisdom, and unwavering support, leaving an indelible impression on all who had the privilege of crossing his path.

As we move forward, we take solace in the enduring legacy of Vivek’s leadership, which will continue to inspire and guide us in the days ahead. His spirit will forever remain intertwined with the essence of our organization, guiding us as we strive to uphold the values and principles that he held dear.
