Private investigators today work with private individuals, attorneys, business owners, corporations and companies. The truth is that we do utilize surveillance equipment when one spouse suspects the other of marital infidelity. When our clients request it, we do use cameras and video recorders with zoom lenses and date and time stamps to provide proof of cheating spouses.
But our careers have drastically changed with the times. Our methods of gathering information have evolved with technology. Although we still utilize the investigative skills of yesterday, such as searching through old records in courthouse basements, most investigators carry around laptops and begin investigations on their keyboards.
