Frequently Asked Questions

What is Surveillance?

Surveillance

is

the

covert

observation

of

people,

places

and

vehicles,

which

private

investigators

use

to

investigate

suspicious

activities

or

allegations

of

illegal

behaviour.

Also

referred

to

as

"tailing

someone"

it

is

the

technique

of

putting

an

investigator

out

in

the

field

who

follows

a

subject

to

document

their

activities

without

their

knowledge.

This

is

accomplished

by

recording

their

activities

on

videotape

or

still photographs.

Should I be embarrassed about talking to someone about this?

We

are

regularly

contacted

by

people

who

suspect

their

spouse

or

significant

others

of

infidelity.

It

is

nothing

to

be

embarrassed

about.

What

you

are

seeking

is

peace

of

mind

and

empowerment

about

something

you

are

not

sure

of.

It

is

natural

to

seek

to

determine

if

your

suspicions

are

real

or

imagined.

We

invest

a

tremendous

part

of

ourselves

in

relationships.

It

is

natural

to

want

to

determine

the

strength and integrity of that relationship.

Is Domestic Surveillance legal?

Surveillance

is

the

process

of

documenting

what

is

going

on

in

the

world

of

an

individual.

As

long

as

we

stay

within

the

law

while

conducting our investigation (i.e. not trespassing, etc.), surveillance by a licensed investigator is completely legal.

How is the surveillance plan established?

Planning is often more important than execution. The better job we do of designing the surveillance, the more likely it is to be productive and the more cost effective it will be. Because you know more about the subjects behaviours than we ever will, we rely on you to assist us in developing the correct time and place to watch them. We need you to determine when they are most likely to be engaged in this behaviour and where we should start the surveillance. If you are not able to discern when with any degree or accuracy, we recommend that you consider when they are not available and we can eliminate those times as a starting point. All these questions and more go into creating an effective surveillance strategy. Finally, the more information you provide prior to surveillance, i.e. vehicle make/model, plate number, work schedule, etc., the less time we have to take to figure all of that out.

What do I do once the surveillance is set up?

Once the surveillance plan is in place it is important that you do not do anything to alert the subject of the investigation, this may compromise the investigation. Do not change your habits and do not ask too many questions about their activities. Do not approach the investigator while conducting the surveillance. It may also be a good idea not to tell anyone that you have hired an investigator.

Will the subject find out that they are being watched?

Our surveillance investigations are 100% confidential. We do everything necessary to insure the covert nature of the investigation. If we ever perceive that the security of the investigation is threatened, we back off and re-evaluate with your input. Some important points: Never threaten to hire an investigator. Never hint that you might hire an investigator. Do nothing out of the ordinary. This will make the subject even more difficult to watch. If you have done this, be sure to tell us ahead of time so we can prepare.

What evidence will I receive at the conclusion?

Around 1-3 days after the investigation is completed you will receive a DVD and a detailed written report via express post. The DVD will contain the video evidence for you to review on your computer or DVD player. This video may be used by your lawyer in a court of law as evidence. If you have any other questions or concerns please dont hesitate to contact us for more information…
