Surveillance and More

Learn more about Strider Investigations and our processes.



While surveillance can be useful in everything from information gathering to evidence collection, to client safety, very few investigative firms practice it properly.  If you are looking for help with a case or crisis, we will assess the potential to use surveillance as one of many tools.  It is applicable to civil and criminal investigations, as well as fidelity, missing persons, and many others.  All four kinds of surveillance may play a role in your case: static, mobile, foot, and electronic.

Undercover Operations

Often referred to as a “pretext” operations in the private investigation profession, undercover activities can be useful to gather information and evidence relating to your case. Strider has a number of methods and tools for completing undercover missions. The majority of which will not be revealed under any circumstance. Normally only used in major cases, we will discuss its applicability once we have completed our initial evaluation of your case.

Fidelity / Divorce

Many investigators build websites dedicated to “infidelity” cases. Since we’re optimists, we call them “fidelity cases”. Surveilling and catching a cheating husband or wife is doable if that’s what you need to move on. Our experience is that most people know what is happening, they just need the evidence to take the next step in their relationship and personal journey. We offer non-judgmental support and professional investigations that will include a professional report with supporting film or pictures to document what we find.

Missing Persons / Locates

People are surprised to know that the same skills used in surveillance, OSINT, counter-surveillance and S&R (search and rescue) is the most effective combination of tools to locate a missing person fast. Missing Persons cases can be treated as cold (no or limited urgency), medium-threat, and FAST-ACTION. Retainers are non-refundable once we begin.


Counter-Surveillance is the act of determining whether an opposing surveillance is active, assessing it, and/or preventing it’s ability to function. If you believe you or someone you care for is under surveillance, contact us carefully, ideally with a pre-pay phone you have never used before or by borrowing a friend’s phone or email. Whatever challenges you may be facing, Strider has the team and capabilities to solve the challenge
