What Is Surveillance?
Surveillance that a private investigator would carry out is the monitoring and observation of, mostly people, to see what they are doing, where they are going and who they are with. It is a legal practice that every private detective carries out and there are different methods and for the different uses of surveillance. The detectives will record all the information on video and with photographs and it can be used in court if necessary. The detective, as a law abiding citizen can stand in court and swear by what his report says. Sometimes a private detective might be asked to watch a particular house and record the comings and goings. Surveillance is used by many people to find out what a spouse or partner is up to if they are acting suspiciously.

This is often used in conjunction with a GPS tracking device that can be fitted to the partner’s vehicle and will track wherever the vehicle goes 24/7. This can be viewed online at a website that is easy to log into to watch for any regular or unknown addresses.
