Licensed private investigators perform many follow-ups by order. There are quite a few reasons for ordering surveillance by a private investigator. For example, to monitor debtors in enforcement or bankruptcy proceedings, in order to check whether they are hiding assets; following a spouse, in order to verify (or deny) adultery or other things they chose to hide; Monitoring of business partners, when there is a need to make sure that they are not hiding relevant information from us and more. 


It should be noted that often conducting surveillance through a private investigator is the only legal channel open to us in order to obtain the information, because if we conduct the surveillance ourselves, we may risk committing the offense of harassment and possibly additional offenses.

Conducting surveillance through a private investigator

Surveillance is done by investigators often in a covert manner, when the investigator follows the object without it being able to detect the surveillance on it. The researcher can do this on horseback, or follow on foot, depending on the circumstances arising from the area. A good private investigator is one who knows how to assimilate into the field, behave in a natural way that does not arouse suspicion, think quickly on his feet, makes sure to find out everything possible about the object before the execution, and most importantly, he has the patience to wait until the results are obtained.  


We note that around the issue of surveillance, there are all kinds of legal issues that the private investigator has the responsibility to control well. For example, there are private investigators who use listening devices or electronic surveillance equipment (such as GPS) for the purpose of conducting surveillance. However, these measures are illegal, and the evidence gathered from them is likely to be invalidated in a legal proceeding. Also, surveillance that violates privacy (for example, following a person within the individual's authority) is illegal surveillance, and it is also not expected to yield evidence that will be admissible in court.

And what if we are under surveillance?

Sometimes it happens that a person suspects that he is under surveillance, whether legal or not, and he wants to deny or verify this suspicion. These are mainly situations in which a person is suspicious of his business partners or fears his business rivals, that they will resort to conducting surveillance on him for various needs. There are situations in which there is a fear of industrial espionage, and it is necessary to rule out this suspicion by carrying out tests and surveillance about various figures who may be carrying out such espionage towards us (it is interesting to note by the way, that in certain situations an employer is allowed to monitor his employees by electronic means, such as for example Ituran installed in a car from work, and more).


In these situations, a professional private investigator in possession of appropriate professional equipment can check whether various and common surveillance measures have been implanted about the client. For example, to check if the phone is being tapped, to check if spy cameras have been installed on the smartphone, if there is surveillance about the customer's car, and more.


At the end of the day, an experienced, professional and responsible private investigator is a good way to conduct follow-ups that will yield information and evidence in different circumstances. It is important not to compromise, and to choose only a private investigator who meets all the parameters, on the way to achieving the desired results.
