In most of the criminal cases people resist to take the assistance of the private investigators because they think that they don’t do anything but sitting idle in the cars with the binoculars and secretly watches the individual throughout their routines in hope to catch them in lies or half-truths. What a lot of people don’t realize that there is a lot more services that a private investigator offers for any case and these services not only save the client’s time and money but also prove them that they are even worth it for that particular case.
Here are the four things that an investigator does:
Survey the area thoroughly that is requested
Not every location is suitable for the surveillance. The goal behind observing any individual is to blend in the environment so that no one can guess that you are observing their activities and so you are able to observe the behavior of your subject. But if the location is not private and there are no such places where you can blend in then the surveillance that is conducted at such locations won’t yield favorable results.
The more information, the better surveillance
Many clients do contact the private investigators but don’t give them enough information about the person whom they want to investigate. When we ask them for the information either they say that they don’t have any or they say this is what we have hired you for. Well for a private investigator at least the basic information is needed as the goal is to have an understanding about that individual’s routine. Some of the basic information that is helpful is:
- A picture of the individual
- If they have a car what is its License plate number
- Their workplace and a home
- Their social media accounts
At least this information is required from the clients so that the results are brought forward with in the lesser times.
What if there is no activity?
Well the private investigators are required to gather all the possible information that is needed to solve the case but sometimes there are the situations when there is no activity by the subject. In this way one cannot guarantee that the results that you are looking for will actually come out or not. But if the situation is exactly like this that there is no activity then the investigator will only give the results in the report that he observed in the whole time period.
Surveillance can be used for many purposes
Once the investigator has gathered all the information then he will then introduce the surveillance. Surveillance is then used for many purposes like for:
- Insurance defense
- Matrimonial cases
- Child custody
- Trademark infringement
- Criminal cases
- General litigation matters
