Surveillance is the monitoring of the behavior, activities, or other changing information, usually of people and often in a surreptitious manner. The word surveillance is the French word for “watching over”.
The word surveillance may be applied to observation from a distance by means of electronic equipment (such as CCTV cameras), or interception of electronically transmitted information (such as Internet traffic or phone calls). It may also refer to simple, relatively no- or low-technology methods such as human intelligence agents and postal interception.
Surveillance is a crucial part of the success of many types of investigations. Surveillance is also one of our core operations. At the completion of all surveillance assignments, we will you provide a professionally written report as well as photographic and video evidence if appropriate. Our surveillance investigators are also highly capable witnesses and will be available to testify in court regarding the results of our investigation. Some of the situations which often call for surveillance and can be either covert or overt are:
- Undercover Operations
- Child Custody Investigations
- Suspicions of a cheating spouse/divorce
- Medical or Insurance Fraud
