There are many reasons why a business or an individual might need to set up an undercover operation

In the case of businesses, undercover operatives can be highly useful in identifying and substantiating reports of such activities as employee theft, sexual harassment and fraudulent workers’ compensation claims.  For individuals, the undercover private detective can be essential to investigations of everything from infidelity to fraud. Undercover work can often be one of the most effective tools at the private investigator’s disposal.

At Nationwide Legal Investigations, our agents, many of whom have previously worked in law enforcement, have received extensive training in undercover operations. They also possess considerable experience in this challenging aspect of private detective work. A seasoned operative is key to an effective undercover assignment.

When you hear “undercover operation”, the image that jumps to your mind may well be that of the covert international spies portrayed in movies. The reality is not quite as glamorous, but there are similarities: any undercover operation requires careful and intelligent planning and precise execution if it is to achieve its goal. Unlike rogue agents in movies, however, the real-life undercover operative is governed by the laws of evidence, and must be extremely careful that any information he acquires during an assignment be admissible in court. Undercover work is highly complex, and not to be undertaken by amateurs. Mistakes can be costly and wasteful, and can undermine the very legal action the operation was designed to support.

This is why a detective agency with the experience and talent of Nationwide Legal Investigations is necessary if your investigation is going to require undercover work. We will advise you as to whether undercover work can benefit your case, and then plan and execute an operation designed to obtain results, both in terms of evidence and of satisfaction.
