Private Investigator Surveillance Techniques

Private Surveillance is when a private investigator watches someone or something. This can be done for many reasons such as to find out information, to catch someone doing something they shouldn’t be doing, or to protect someone.

There are many different techniques that private investigators use for surveillance. Some of the most common ones are discussed below.

Physical Surveillance

This is one of the most common and effective surveillance techniques used by private investigators. Physical surveillance involves following a person or vehicle without being detected. Private investigators use this technique to track someone’s movements and gather information about their activities.

Electronic Surveillance

This type of surveillance involves using electronic devices to monitor a person’s activities. Private investigators often use electronic surveillance to track a person’s phone calls, emails, and social media activity. This type of surveillance can be very useful in gathering evidence about a person’s activities.

Covert Surveillance

Covert surveillance is another effective private investigator surveillance technique. This type of surveillance involves tracking a person’s movements without their knowledge. Private investigators often use covert surveillance to gather information about a person’s activities without them knowing they are being followed.

What other techniques do private investigators use?

Sweeping: This is a process where private investigators will go through an area looking for any type of surveillance that may be hidden.

Corporate surveillance

This type of private investigator surveillance is usually done to protect the interests of a company. This can involve things like insurance claims, employee absences, or even benefit fraud. Companies may already have legitimate CCTV systems monitoring their workplace. However, they may still need proof of employee wrongdoing or misconduct. In this case, a private investigator can be hired to conduct covert surveillance. This will involve following the employees and recording their activities without them knowing.
