Private investigator surveillance for Workers Compensation claims, business and franchise disputes, child custody issues, divorce property settlement or relationship suspicion investigations. Surveillance is about obtaining the evidence, the proof, to show the truth.

Within law enforcement surveillance is often static in that entry into a private premises is made using a special form of warrant, and surveillance equipment is installed. For vehicle surveillance a large amount of resources can be made available, to law enforcement, as technology has evolved government agencies have expanded their sources for gathering intelligence beyond that permitted by a private investigator. Whilst the objective of law enforcement surveillance is proof of criminal intent, or associations, private investigator surveillance may be looking for the actual capacity of a Workcover injury victim, evidence of fraud, corruption, or criminal behaviour, breach of a contract, proof of a relationship (evidence of infidelity, an affair), or a breach of a child custody order, or evidence of placing children at risk, or unacceptable behaviour by a carer (such as selling drugs, or using drugs, prostitution, whilst having custody of the child).
The private investigator surveillance investigations must be conducted within the privacy laws, if the covert surveillance evidence obtained is to be acceptable to a court; this is important, the proof, the evidence, obtained by properly executed private investigator surveillance is usable, as evidence, in court. Please ensure you use a licensed experienced private investigator service, such as ourselves.
Quite often there are financial restrictions placed by the client (realistically we all have to live within budgets), which mean for the most part the operative is working alone, or as part of a team of two, at most. He/she will have a controller to whom they will answer, and from whom they will obtain very occasional support.
The objective and set up for the private investigator surveillance differs, depending on the type, such as child custody where evidence of a breach is desired, a Workers Compensation claim issue, a suspected fraud, or due diligence investigation where exposure dictates a requirement for independant evidence to support the claimed restrictions, a requirement for Workcover surveillance where contraindications of a restriction may assist the client, a HR matter where two people coming together and an exchange is made is the evidence expected in a corruption matter, or a suspected affair where proof of a relationship suspicion is what the client seeks; each requires a different approach, and has a different expected outcome.
Following vehicles, as part of mobile private investigator surveillance, becomes a highly skilled exercise in remaining close enough to see but not be seen. There are risks, and sometimes an operative may elect to pull back rather then be 'burnt' by the subject. Multiple private investigator surveillance operatives, operating in a coordinated manner, have become more common. This is as the result of increased challenges caused by traffic enforcement methods such as red light and speed camera's (or the dreaded combination camera at intersections), mobile radar, higher traffic congestion, as well as the increased sensitivity of subjects for surveillance. This has increased the cost of surveillance investigations, as well as increased successful outcomes. We have the links and connections to conduct successful surveillance.
Surveillance is unique in that, at times, you are paying a person to do nothing but sit and wait. The operative must remain alert, and prepared, for long periods to obtain that few seconds of footage that will provide the answers for the clients. Surveillance can also be likened to painting; over time a picture of activity is built up. When you need to hire a private investigator to conduct surveillance contact us for a free quote.
