Websters dictionary defines Surveillance as watchful. Close watch kept over someone or something.

Kolbach Investigations likes to take surveillance a step further and defines it as observing and recording the activities of someone of something without being discovered for the purposes of gathering information in order to bring closure to the investigation. To successfully accomplish that task our professionally trained, experienced and highly motivated investigators employ many methods using the latest technology in order to remain undetected and to assure that we do not invade a person’s privacy or harass the subject in any way. Our investigators will not trespass on the subject’s property, enter the residence under false pretenses or use unethical tactics to obtain evidence.

Our surveillance procedures have been constructed to:

  • Observe physical activities in progress
  • Observe daily routine or activities
  • Identify associates
  • Find or locate individuals
  • Protect Witnesses
  • Verify Statements
  • Prevent a crime from being committed
  • Apprehend a criminal in an illegal act
  • Recover stolen property
  • Our investigators have been trained in the following types of Surveillance:
  • Stationary (fixed, plant, stakeout)
  • Moving (close or rough)
  • Close surveillance: The primary object is the continuous observation of the target without regard to whether the target knows they are under surveillance.
  • Rough surveillance: This method is conducted in such a manner as to ensure that the target does not become aware of our surveillance activities.

Surveillance can be used for many purposes, such as in the following situations:

  • Workers’ Compensation
  • Insurance Fraud
  • Labor and Employment Investigations
  • Domestic Matters (Child Custody/Marital Deceit)
  • Suspected Criminal Activity
  • Develop Information about Subjects or Business Entities
