Lessons from my longest surveillance.

I was recently asked what was the longest surveillance I’ve been on and the answer is 22 hours straight, but it didn’t start out to be long!

Be sure to watch the video for all the details, but here’s the biggest takeaway for you…

Be Prepared!

Make sure your vehicle is ready for a surveillance.

Make sure you have enough recordable media if your surveillance goes longer than you expected.

Make sure you have enough battery power to supply your devices including your camera! (You can learn how I set up the power supply in my surveillance van on The Investigator’s Ultimate Guide to Surveillance.)

Make sure you have food and water for your surveillance.

Make sure you have a bathroom plan for a longer than expected surveillance!

P.S. – This surveillance paid about $1,400 and that was a payday any working private investigator can understand the importance of, but I was only able to take this surveillance because it was a reputable law firm client! Would I take a last minute case from a new client? I don’t know. It would have been a gamble.

Please think through now the pros and cons of taking last minute cases. It can make the difference between a case that ends with a nice, big payday and one that ends with disappointment and wasted time!
