Surveillance is one of the most basic yet most difficult assignments a private investigator can undertake. Surveillance is commonly conducted in cases involving matrimonial / domestic issues, insurance defense, employee misconduct and sensitive contract matters. What makes surveillance delicate and problematic is that there are no second chances. If the critical observation is missed or if the subject becomes aware of the surveillance, there will usually not be a second opportunity to obtain a favorable result. Thus, while a successful surveillance may last days, weeks, or even months with numerous observations of the targeted conduct, one misstep can make any further surveillance impossible as well as jeopardize all other aspects of an ongoing investigation.
Alpha Group Investigations’ surveillance team consists of male and female investigators of diverse ethnic backgrounds, who are highly trained and equipped with state-of-the-art technology including video and audio (when legally permissible) equipment to gather the information that is most critical to a successful completion.
The success of Alpha Group in the field of surveillance is widely documented. Our surveillance investigators are continually updated on current local, state, federal and international laws regarding the sensitive nature of surveillance and the restrictions placed on it.
