Our Services Include, But Are Not Limited To
The most effective way to document a subject’s activities is through video surveillance. Once an assignment is received, a pre-surveillance activity check is conducted which includes:
Verifying the subjects name and the most recent address.
Verifying the vehicle(s) that the subject might use.
Making an initial determination as to the subject’s schedule/activities.
Reviewing the subject’s location for the best possible surveillance positions.
Once all initial information has been gathered, contact is made with our client to review and schedule the assignment. The case is then assigned to one of our field investigators. Regular updates are provided per our client’s instructions.
After completion of the case, a detailed report documenting all activity by the subject is submitted to our client, along with a CD copy of the digital video obtained. We will also follow up with our client to determine if further investigation is needed.
AOE/COE investigations are conducted to determine the facts surrounding an alleged injury by a worker on the job. AOE/COE refers to an injury Arising Out of Employment or is in the Course Of Employment.
Conducting an AOE/COE investigation is critical during the early stages of a Workers Compensation Claim. Documentation of the facts and evidence surrounding the injury should be immediately obtained, because evidence may get misplaced or moved and the claimant and/or witness memories may not be as clear over time. In addition, the information gathered can be of great help should there be a need to conduct a surveillance investigation.
A typical AOE/COE investigation includes:
Claimant interview (recorded)
Employer level interviews (recorded)
Witness interview(s) (recorded)
Injury site inspection and documentation
Signed authorization for release of medical records

Skip tracing is the art of locating a current residence and/or a place of employment on persons who have moved and have left very little trace of themselves behind. Our investigators who specialize in locating people use a variety of both public and non-public sources of information to accomplish this in an accurate and timely manner.
We also use state of the art database sources available only to Licensed Investigators and Law Enforcement agencies.
Utilizing both public and non public sources and databases we will attempt to locate assets held by your subject to include; property, vehicles, watercraft, aircraft and business’s. We can also attempt to locate a place of employment for possible garnishment of wages on judgments.
