With more and more people relying on the Internet and other technology to conduct business as well as their personal affairs, mobile and high tech surveillance for private investigation has never been more productive and efficient. So, what exactly are these techniques and what do they entail?
High tech private investigation relies on either using technology to locate or prove a person’s location, or finding information about the individual from a piece of technology they may use, but is this legal? Well, clearly tapping into people’s phone conversations and hacking emails and smartphones is not legal. Any private investigator you hire will need to be sure they are operating within the law at all times, and be able to make sure their evidence is collected lawfully, especially when it comes to high tech surveillance issues.
Having said that, it may be difficult to think of exactly how private investigators can use technology legally, but actually there are a range of options we can offer including:
Searching a specialist database, we have access to mobile phone numbers, private land line phone numbers, and business phone numbers. This information can identify who a particular phone number belongs to and any other phones that are registered to the same person, and so is especially useful in cases of matrimonial investigations and general surveillance.
With GPS we are able to monitor a vehicles whereabouts 24 hours a day, providing in depth, full, reports on journeys undertaken, locations visited and time spent. This is particularly helpful for commercial businesses with fleets of cars and drivers as well as of course domestic surveillance.
Covert audio and video recordings taken from small cameras and microphones can be used to provide evidence of conversations and actions of the person under surveillance. This is perfect for both commercial and domestic investigations.
High tech private investigation techniques need to be within the law and can include solutions such as phone tracing, GPS tracking and covert recording techniques. To find out how our private investigators could help you, contact us today.
