Surveillance may be needed in a variety of types of legal situations such as when you need to confirm what any individual’s activities are over a period of time. Usually surveillance is carried out without the knowledge of the individual being targeted. Timely records are kept during the surveillance period to help confirm a person’s activities, contacts, and actions.
Surveillance can help locate missing or “skipped” individuals, prove fraud, drug abuse, partner abuse, affairs, and much more. Whether you’re hoping to find someone, or prove fraud of some sort, surveillance may help. Surveillance is helpful during divorce cases if you want to try to discover the truth about your spouse’s activities when he or she is away from you.
Accurate and useful surveillance will include a written report as well as timely records to prove the timing of and order of events being recorded. If you want to find out the activities of almost anyone you can use a private investigation firm that specializes in surveillance. Whether the issue is potential insurance fraud, fraudulent workman’s comp claims, or the desire to understand how your employees act when you’re not there, surveillance can be of assistance.
Surveillance is Private
Through surveillance you can gain necessary evidence without the target having any idea about the investigation until charges are filed or legal action is taken. There are many different surveillance options available today due to advanced technology in the form of small hidden cameras and recording devices. Using highly trained individuals to conduct the surveillance you need is imperative for success.
Surveillance can be used in criminal defense (and prosecution) by identifying a different suspect or using it to discredit a particular witness. Surveillance can also reveal a lot about witness behavior and be used in cross examination of witnesses.
Work Place Surveillance
Surveillance can also be used by employers to identify problem employees and poor customer service. Any time that a record of activity can be used to prove or disprove something whether poor customer service or possible theft, surveillance should be considered. Conducting surveillance on employees can establish records of events when questions arise about why you are letting someone go, helping avoid lawsuits.
If you’re not sure how your employees behave when not supervised conducting a period of surveillance using hidden cameras and undercover investigators can help. If sales are down, and you don’t know why, the hidden cameras and the private investigator can be the salvation your business needs.
Infidelity and Custody Case Surveillance
If you’re suspicious about your spouse’s activities, hiring someone to conduct surveillance can either prove your concerns to be true, or alleviate your fears. Surveillance can be used in custody cases to demonstrate neglectful parenting or help reveal a secret lifestyle that would make proper parenting difficult.
Your spouse never has to know that you hired someone to conduct surveillance unless you choose to tell them. With the high rate of divorce, it can be helpful to be able to prove indiscretions such as infidelity or illegal behavior when trying to reach a settlement in court.
Having the facts from professional surveillance can make a world of difference in your settlement opportunities.
