How Do Private Investigators Conduct Undercover / Covert Surveillance?

Local UK private investigators conduct covert undercover surveillance every day. It is one of the most common services requested by clients.  When a client requests surveillance, it's always important for a client to give as much information as possible to the private investigator.  This will allow the best results.  The more initial information provided, the better your local private investigator can work.

Information that will help your local private investigator:

This is pretty straightforward; however, if it is not done properly, the entire case can fall apart. At this phase, your local private investigator will obtain any and all information about the subject, that might prove useful.

  • Where do they live?
  • Do they live alone, or with others?
  • Where do they work?
  • What hours of work?
  • What type of car do they drive?
  • What do they look like (photo of the subject)
  • What route do they travel?
  • What is there favourite hangout?
  • What is their typical routine?

These questions seem tedious to clients, but if this step is done well, it will ensure success on the case.

Sometimes the smallest piece of information can make the difference in success or failure on surveillance. If you are planning on consulting with a private investigator you must understand that being open and completely honest is vital.

Your local private investigator will always treat your case in strict confidence.

Planning your case - This step is a difficult one for most local private investigators. Clients usually approach this one of two ways.

Either, they tell the investigator to figure it out on their own, or, they micromanage the hours and days worked to the point that very little useful evidence is obtained.

It is really important to work together as a team to determine what days and hours surveillance should be conducted. It will also save a client money in the long run.

The most common forms of surveillance we conduct include:

If you suspect your husband, wife, partner of infidelity - we can help you prove or disprove your suspicions.   If we catch a cheating spouse, the evidence can help to save you  money, help with child custody and/or divorce proceedings.
