Video Surveillance By Private Investigators

In general, most video recordings are legal in the United States with or without consent. It is our belief that this includes video surveillance performed by a private investigator for the purposes of documenting adultery, infidelity and unfatiful spouses.

Laws do exist regarding the "invasion of  privacy", which deals with the area of expected privacy. These include areas such as bathrooms, locker rooms, changing/dressing rooms, bedrooms and other areas where a person should expect a high level of personal privacy.

While the majority of laws dealing with video recording privacy issues tend to allow surreptitious recording and monitoring of video activity under most circumstances without notification of any of the parties involved, it is highly recommended that you consult with your local or state law enforcement or an attorney who specializes in this area to comply with all local and state regulations prior to utilization of video surveillance and monitoring.

Your private investigator is well versed in such laws and as a rule of thumb you should not have to worry about this when hiring one. Nonetheless, this may affect your case in some ways. It is important that you realize that unlike Hollywood’s version of spousal surveillance, we will not peek into windows, hide in the bathroom, put a micro-camera under the door, etc. Our investigators do NOT plant hidden cameras in cars, bedrooms or places that open ourselves up to liability.

Frontline Investigations & Surveillance specializes in infidelity investigations as well as worker's compensation cases.  We have a great deal of experience in obtaining video evidence that is both useful and legal.  However, this should not be mistunderstood as legal advice. Do not rely on any of this information without first verifying it with your attorney.

Documented video evidence can help your case tremendously.  Contact our agency today - we look forward to discussing your needs.
