Make no mistake about it. When it comes to surveillance, we are the best in the business. Many other agencies charge an inflated price for surveillance beyond their normal hourly rate. Some will not even take your case unless you agree to pay double - a minimum of two investigators to follow the subject. We believe that your investigator should be skilled enough to work alone under most circumstances.
Surveillance is used to monitor the activities of people. The most common uses are to determine if employees are acting in an appropriate and honest manner.
Determining if a disability (workers comp) claim is valid or if a spouse or partner is having an illicit affair. It is sometimes used to monitor the care of children or nannies or after school activities. It si also important tro see what happens to the acre of children in access or custody matters.
We blend into areas where we need to be stationary and we covertly follow our subject when necessary. We are careful not to arouse undue suspicion during the surveillance and we document all activities using date and time stamped video. Although we follow and video tape our subject's activities, we take steps to constantly evaluate whether the subject is getting suspicious. Our primary goal is to protect the covert (secret) nature of the investigation and to keep the subject unaware that anyone is watching.
You are hiring a professional to do a professional job. Our Agency guarantees you are getting a professional and we stand behind that guarantee.
Overt vs Covert Surveillance
Overt surveillance is surveillance conducted in the open with the intent of being seen. This is most commonly used with guard and patrol services that perform surveillance on buildings, parking lots, businesses, and residential areas with the objective of keeping intruders out of the area. Covert surveillance is conducted in secret and is intended to be invisible to the person or persons under observation. Covert surveillance is most commonly used when dishonest employees or are being watched for theft or other inappropriate activities when a cheating spouse or errant parent is under scrutiny As a licensed private detective agency, we are equipped and experienced at covert surveillance.
Stationary vs Mobile Surveillance
Stationary surveillance is conducted when the investigator remains in a single location for extended periods. This may be in front of a bank door, behind tinted windows of a vehicle, or even hidden in the bushes. Mobile surveillance is conducted on foot, on public transportation, or in other vehicles. Most surveillances are a combination of stationary and mobile; the investigator may remain in one place while a subject visits a residence, sits at home, or goes to a motel. But when the subject leaves, the investigator must follow using the same mode of transportation as the subject. Our Investigators can blend into any environment and quickly transition from stationary to mobile surveillance, and vice-versa.
Close vs Loose Surveillance
Close surveillance is used when the subject's activities must be recorded during every moment of the surveillance period. Loose surveillance is more covert (being more difficult to detect) and is used when the subject does not require constant monitoring. For example, if it is necessary to find out who visits the subject at their home, then close surveillance is required with an agent sitting in sight of their driveway and door. If it is only necessary to find out who the subject visits, then the agent can maintain a loose surveillance by watching the end of their street or the exit from their subdivision. Close surveillance is required if the subject enters a crowded area or a building with multiple exits; loose surveillance can be used on country roads and isolated areas. A variation of loose surveillance is called "activity checks" where a subject is checked at specific intervals or predetermined times. These activity checks are used to begin to determine a subject's patterns without having to dedicate an investigator for hours on end.
Counter surveillance is the art of performing surveillance on those who are performing surveillance themselves. For example, if your spouse hires investigators to watch you, if they are inexperienced, you may become aware that someone is following you around and videotaping your activities. You could then hire our investigators to identify the people watching you and to determine who hired them. Counter surveillance is also used in cases where someone may be stalking another person. Stalkers attempt to follow and determine the patterns and activities of their targets. Counter surveillance can be used to determine who is responsible for the stalking without alerting the stalker or causing the stalker to withdraw. If the stalker withdrew, it would make it impossible to identify and neutralize their threat. Counter surveillance is an extremely difficult surveillance operation. Not only is the investigator attempting to perform surveillance on someone that may be proficient in surveillance techniques themselves, but they must do it without being detected during times when that person is performing surveillance and is, therefore, actively monitoring their surroundings.
Surveillance loses its value if the activities of the subject are not recorded properly. Yes, the investigator can act as an expert witness and provide their notes related to what the subject did and did not do, but it is far better to capture the subject's actions on film.
We have the equipment to bring back the evidence whether the surveillance is in bright daylight or pitch black night. We use the right equipment and the right vehicles to meet the requirements of the task at hand.
Note:We do not find out owners of motor vehicles in Australia, this may be legal in other countries.
