What information is required to start a surveillance assignment?Typically the minimum that is required is; the subjectʼs name, a physical description and/or a photo of the subject, an address and time to start. The more information you supply us with, the better chances we have of obtaining optimal results.
How quickly can you start an investigation?
24 hours notice is usually plenty of time. Itʼs often possible to start a case immediately. Weekends/Holidays are the busiest times and may require additional advance notice. We first need to gather all the facts and authorization forms before we can begin the investigation.
How much does it cost to hire an investigator?
Investigations are billed on an hourly basis. Rates are dependent on the type of investigation taking place. Before the case is started, a strategy is established depending on the circumstances and your needs. Once this plan is in place, a budget can be established. Investigation services (with the exception of insurance investigations) are payable in advance of the work being conducted. Payment can
be made via credit card, cash, check or money order.
How many investigators are used on a domestic surveillance case?
The number of investigators used depends on a number of factors. Basic surveillance on an individual being followed from home or an uncomplicated work situation can be conducted by one investigator. More complicated scenarios, such as following someone from a high rise office building, or airport or hotel require an additional investigator. Other factors in which we may recommend a second investigator include, fast and aggressive drivers and extra alert drivers who always watch the rear view mirror. Of course an additional investigator increases the cost of surveillance, and this factor is also taken into consideration in arriving at your budget. For a proper frame of reference, consider the fact that no law enforcement agency would ever conduct surveillance with less than two cars and few do that.
The more investigators – the less likely the chance of detection.
Is my information keep secret?
Yes, any information submitted to us verbally or via on-line is kept secret and confidential.
Can i get a free price quote?

What do I do once the case is assigned?
Once the case is assigned and the surveillance plan is in place, itʼs important that you do nothing to alert the subject of the investigation. Do not change your habits and do not ask too many questions about their activities.
What evidence will i receive at the conclusion?
The evidence collected in a domestic investigation typically consists of a DVD of the activities and a surveillance report which details all the activities in writing. Both are submitted to you. Or if you wish, we can maintain them for you. Your video can be delivered in a DVD or CD-ROM format.
