Surveillance for a private investigator is a dangerous occupation because it causes one to focus on the vehicle being followed while driving in and out of traffic lanes whilst trying to take video. Inadvertently you might drive through a stop sign or red light and wind up receiving an awfully expensive traffic ticket. Our advice is never attempt surveillance on your own and don't ask a friend or relative to do it for you. Your best course of action is to retain the services of a licensed and professional private investigator and make sure they carry proper liability insurance and that they have state of the art video equipment.
Our private investigators are well-versed with regard to the laws that govern trespassing and invasion of privacy. You do not need to be caught breaking laws and spending a few days and nights in jail when you should entrust your surveillance to a professional investigator. Private investigators who conduct surveillance are equipped with training, specialized equipment, and vehicles that allow them to literally be unnoticeable. Finally, should you be interested in presenting evidence in either a civil or criminal court a licensed private investigator makes a credible witness where you would not be because you are involved with the subject in one way or the other.
Our investigators regularly perform surveillance investigations for major corporations, law enforcement, insurance companies and private individuals. Our surveillance investigators have thousands of hours of surveillance experience. and are rated A+ by the Better Business Bureau.

We are proud to be considered one of the industry leaders in surveillance services. Our surveillance coverage extends to every state in the continental United States and numerous countries abroad. In addition to the standard manned surveillance, which consists of one to three teams, we can also deploy drones and stationary cameras depending on your situation and the surrounding environment.
Surveillance tends to be the most time consuming, and therefore the most expensive, of the private investigator services. As a “rule of thumb” a single (manned) surveillance vehicle operates at about $100 per hour. Stationary surveillance can vary, depending on the equipment and location, from $50 to $500 per day. Additional resources, such as GPS tracking and remote viewing, can ameliorate costs and improve overall efficiency.
Prior to entering any agreement for surveillance services, Atlantis Private Investigations will prepare an investigative plan and provide our clients with a written estimate detailing the number of hours of surveillance, the cost of support equipment, and other fees or costs (such as video production and/or report writing) up front. Moreover, we will not exceed the amount of the estimate without your approval.
