Questions About Las Vegas Private Investigators
Frequently Asked Questions
What happens on a surveillance case?
When conducting surveillance on a spouse or partner, the Investigator will first determine the best schedule for surveillance with you. Once on surveillance, all visible activity will be recorded on videotape. Should your spouse or partner enter a public location, such as a bar or shopping center, covert videotape will be obtained where possible. The Investigator will also document all activity that is observed and can supply you with a copy of the video, as well as a formal written report. No need to worry about our investigators coming into close contact with your spouse, as we have disguises and covert equipment that are impossible to spot. Your spouse could look directly at our camera and never know that they were seeing a camera.
What kind of report or documentation will I receive?
You will receive a copy of the video obtained while in the field, as well as a written formal report (by request). Both of these items are admissible in court.
My spouse will be attending a convention in Las Vegas. Can you do surveillance while he/she is visiting Las Vegas?
Conducting surveillance on individuals who are vacationing or visiting our neon city is our specialty. It takes special training to follow a subject in a casino, convention center, or even traveling on the Strip between locales. There are many temptations in Las Vegas, and many individuals come to Las Vegas on business, but then spend their time on extracurricular activities. We can infiltrate practically any convention or business on the Strip and observe your spouse’s actions.
What are your rates? Are they competitive with other investigators?
Our rates vary, based on the type of investigation required. Our rates are competitive with other investigative firms in Nevada. We do not have any hidden charges, such as typing fees or video copying fees. Please contact our firm directly to schedule a free consultation, and at that time, we can determine a budget for your case. Do not shop for your investigative firm by price alone. You want the very best to represent you, and a low ball quote from an inexperienced firm will get you results that are of low quality, or they may compromise the investigation with sloppy work. Do you want a firm with well paid professionals or do you want a $9.25 per hour investigator trainee working your case? We have more than 25 full time employees and have full service offices in Las Vegas and Reno, Nevada. No other firm operates at the level we provide.
What shows on my credit card statement if I charge my case?
We accept VISA and MasterCard. If you choose to pay for your case via credit card, the charge on your statement will be listed generically under the name “Elite Services”.
Why shouldn't I use a data broker on the Internet that charges low, one-time fees for information?
There are many data brokers on the Internet that offer specials such as locating an individual for a low one-time rate. The problem with obtaining information in this fashion is that you will generally receive a list of possible data that may or may not be the individual you are looking for. The data brokers leave the footwork up to you of determining if any of the possible matches are, in fact, the person you are locating. As a licensed, professional private investigator, we will do the footwork and verification for you to make sure that you are receiving accurate information.
How do you make sure that you are not caught while performing an investigation?
Our Investigators are trained in the art of surveillance, and make every attempt to stay undercover. In general, individuals have no idea they are being followed. Just think about the last time that you noted the cars behind and around your vehicle as you drove to the store. If the vehicles around you were driving normally and with the flow of traffic, you would have no reason to suspect anything. In addition, if an Investigator feels that their cover has been compromised in any fashion, the surveillance is immediately terminated, and a new plan is put into action. It is of utmost importance that your situation not be revealed and we consider discretion to be a top priority.
When will I know what the Investigator finds out?
The Investigator assigned to your case will keep in touch with you throughout the course of the assignment. You will receive updates on the days that surveillance is completed, and if a decision needs to be made while the Investigator is in the field, they will contact you immediately for your advisement.
