You might think that all bets are off when it comes to what a private investigator can and can’t do when carrying out surveillance, or what he can or can’t use to do so, but this is not the case, which leads us to the question; how do private investigators do surveillance?
A private investigator registered with the PSiRA understands the legal boundaries when it comes to surveillance in all its aspects, which is why it’s important to make sure you hire a registered private investigator like King Investigators.
It’s essential to keep in mind that if the evidence your private investigator is gathering is intended for court, it has to be able to stand up to scrutiny, which can only happen if the evidence has been gathered legitimately.
How do private investigators do surveillance?
At its simplest, surveillance is following someone while remaining undetected, whether on foot or in a vehicle. If two private investigators are involved in the case, especially if the subject of the investigation is already paranoid and suspicious, then they will take turns following the subject.
Remaining undetected during surveillance takes many years of experience in the field, along with a high level of training, and it’s exceptionally important in terms of keeping the client safe during the course of the investigation.
Jacques Botha, owner of King Investigators, and his team of investigators, know the lay of the land like the back of their hand, which is why, when international investigators need a local investigations firm to assist them in Johannesburg and Pretoria, South Africa, King Investigators is their go-to team.
The use of technology in surveillance
Nothing beats video footage and photos when it comes to having irrefutable evidence of a cheating spouse, as well as in many other types of cases, however, King Investigators are passionate about using state of the art technology, when it comes to undercover surveillance.
To this end, this team is always ahead of the curve when it comes to any technological advances in their industry, so that they are always in a position to deliver evidence that is guaranteed to offer the client the very best there is.
There is some confusion when it comes to using GPS devices to keep track of a cheating spouse, however, to clarify that here; the only time a GPS tracking device can be used legally is if the suspected spouse is driving a car owned by the client hiring the PI.
