Our Surveillance Teams Separate the Amateurs from the Professionals.
In the world of investigations, the difference between a good investigator and a great investigator is often measured by their ability to conduct true, covert surveillance without being compromised. In the business, we call this “getting burned”. Not getting burned is the mark of someone who truly understands the craft of surveillance. Covert surveillance is an art just like any other.
Positioning, equipment, intelligence, and undetected movement all fold into a successful surveillance or stakeout. However, the craft of surveillance is far from the television show example of simply sitting in the back of a van with a camera across the street, it is much more than that.
True practitioners must know how to first obtain intelligence on their subject, then wait patiently for the opportunity. They must get on foot when needed, utilize different technology at every angle, and blend into their surroundings in any environment. Najar Investigations agents are some of the best in the business when it comes to the tradecraft of surveillance, and our agents are dedicated to the practice. From years of undercover law enforcement our agents have years of experience and technical equipment and expertise needed to get the photograph and video evidence needed in any situation.
Some of the ways surveillance agents and evidence can be used are:
- Infidelity and Cheating Spouse Investigations
- Child Support and Child Custody Cases
- Corporate Theft or AOE/COE Investigations
- Cohabitation Investigations
- Covert Video of Plaintiff for Trial
- And Much More
Some real-case examples of our surveillance achievements at Najar Investigations:
Los Angeles COUNTY FAMILY COURT ORDER: NO ALCOHOL
Najar Investigations was retained by a concerned parent in Los Angeles County, as they had suspicion that their spouse was drinking while they were in custody of their children. Over the course of several weeks, Najar Investigations agents obtained surveillance video of the subject drinking at restaurants while they had custody of their children. Our investigators accurately measured the amount of drinks per hour and combined all of the evidence in a report that was submitted to the court and which resulted in a positive outcome for our client.
Los Angeles County Family Court Order: to pay alimony
Najar Investigations was retained by a concerned local fireman who was paying for alimony for his alleged disabled wife for approximately three years. The ex-wife had claimed serious back injuries where she was unable to move without a wheelchair, work or take care of herself. Over the course of two months of surveillance Najar Investigations agents were able to document the wife to be cohabitating, working (lifting lumber over her shoulders), wearing high heels and attending to clients. During the initial showing of the evidence secured by the investigators the wife immediately conceded to the client’s demands.
