Surveillance Service

Undetected Surveillance

Undetected surveillance is an art form professed by private investigators and law enforcement groups. Surveillance is a commonly used tool by Private Investigators at Integral Investigations across Sydney, the Gold Coast, and all of Australia. Surveillance can be a very effective tool for a private investigator and their clients if done after proper training and hands on experience in the field. All of Integral Investigations staff are fully licensed after completing government nominated training standards equal to or greater than Certificate III in Investigative Services.

Understanding Surveillance Service

First of all, the meaning of surveillance should be understood. It can be defined as close observation of a person or group, especially one under suspicion. There are numerous reasons why private investigators do surveillance in an investigation, but the most important reason is to learn how, who, where and when a subject will act.

Prior to starting the investigator needs to plan on the way the assignment will be conducted. Whether it would be conducted on foot, by car, using static video cameras or by just following the suspect. Also the feasibility of surveillance in traffic, at home, at the office or even out in the Australian countryside should be considered. All these attributes and many more must be determined before surveillance can even be initiated. The private investigators would normally already have the target identified with information supplied by their client – the next step is they need to decide on the location of the target, and where he or she needs to be observed.
Surveillance assists the investigators with gathering facts or proofs regarding the target’s background, career, and lifestyle.

Another very important factor when it comes to visual observations is the timing. Mostly the private investigators are left with no option about the timing as they have to act as per the routine of the suspect. Often a client will know more about the routine of the suspect than the investigator (at least to start with) so it is with consultation with the client that we decide what sort of resources we put into a surveillance operation. Of course there are assignments where there is little known about the person being investigated (which is why we need to look into them) so some investigations can take quite a period of time.

Something else to consider is that private investigators can only work within laws – we aren’t a bypass of our nations’ laws. Surveillance is one of the few legal avenues of gathering information that can assist in decisions relating to relationships and infidelity, business matters, legal cases and insurance situations.

There are many private investigators providing excellent surveillance services, but of course some are better than others. Integral Investigations with offices in Sydney and on the Gold Coast is one of the most highly reputed private detective firms in Australia.
