Our History . . .
The International Detectives and Protective Svc. was established in 1964 as the W.
L. Lillard Bureau of Investigation. In 1978 the agency went through a transformation
and emerged with the name International Detectives and Investigators; because of
the redundancy of the words detectives and investigators, finally we settle on our
current and final name, International Detective and Protective Service. We secure
public and private property.
We have done business with some of the largest chain stores in the City of Chicago,
including Del-Farm Foods, National Tea Foods, A&P Tea Company Food Stores, Zayre
and Walgreen Drug Stores.
Currently we are servicing companies such as Halsted Indoor Mall, Crown Realty, Shopping
Center, U. S. Equities Shopping Plaza, and other Shopping Plazas, Malls, Construction
Sites, Apartment Buildings and Super Markets. Our roster of clients also includes
lawyers, politicians and insurance companies.
