How early should you start your surveillance?

As a professional private investigator, when’s the best time to do a surveillance on a workers compensation cheat, unfaithful wife or cheating husband? The trick is to show up “early” and that means knowing how early!

Larry’s Surveillance Time Rule of Thumb:

I like to show up 30 minutes before I expect there to be movement from the subject of the investigation.

That means if my client tells me her (allegedly) cheating husband gets off work at 5:00pm and meets his mistress, I want the surveillance to start no later than 4:30pm.

I explain that to my client and the billing starts at 4:30pm.

If my client absolutely refuses to start the surveillance when I recommend based on my years of experience and insist I start at 5:0pm because “he never leaves work early”, then I still show up 15 minutes before that.

Sure, I can’t bill the client for the “extra” 15 minutes, but it makes my life easier giving me a chance to settle into a good surveillance sport, set-up my camera and prepare to follow my subject when he departs.

Look, I believe in going the extra mile for my clients. You should too
.

I feel the same way about my training materials. I give you everything when I teach a course like The Investigator’s Ultimate Guide to Surveillance. Then, on top of that, I give an unconditional – no questions asked – (that is not a typo! 365 days!) Money Back Guarantee! Go the extra mile for your client.

Fire your client.

Have you ever heard the phrase, “Fire your client?” when working as a P.I. or Process Server.

This week I share with you two times I had to fire one of my clients as a Private Investigator including the reasons I had to do it!

The first example is when I was standing-by for a child custody exchange between the mother and the father/ex-husband and it got too weird too fast!

The second case study is from a mobile surveillance on a felony theft case followed by a skip trace.

Bonus Tip: When a client tells you the case is “easy” or “it’s no big deal”… it’s a big deal!

3 Times the Police Surprised Me! Story Time.

This week’s video is just “story time” about three times the police surprised me; once as a security Guard, once when I was a Loss Prevention Officer and once working surveillance as a Private Investigator.

Enjoy!

Hearsay Evidence.

Hearsay evidence is a statement by someone who wasn’t a witness and while it’s usually (but not always) inadmissible in court, it can be valuable for you as a private investigator to move your criminal or civil investigation forward!

Check out this week’s video to see exactly how I get past this objection to get more leads in my case.

Subtleties matter.

How you do anything is how you do everything so it’s important to get the small things right like moving an aggressive, panhandling crackhead trespasser off the property you’re guarding because that means you’re much more likely to make the right move when the bigger problems come along.
