Enhance Your Security: Expert Counter-Surveillance (TSCM) in Los Angeles with EPIS

The threats posed by modern malicious actors seeking information for illicit purposes are genuine. Hackers and criminals persistently attempt to acquire information for financial, political, military, and personal gain. In response to this ongoing threat, your counter-surveillance efforts in Los Angeles must be continuous.

Today’s surveillance devices and technologies are smaller, more discreet, and harder to detect than ever before. They can be concealed in inconspicuous places or items, requiring minimal battery power or connectivity to carry out their tasks. Empire Pacific Investigative Services, Inc. possesses the expertise and technology necessary to identify, uncover, and counter various types of covert surveillance devices. Trust us to safeguard your privacy and security.

Bug Sweep Detection Services

Regular bug sweep detection services play a crucial role in upholding physical security for your home or office. Any physical space can be susceptible to bugging, aiming to capture audio, video, computer keystrokes, numeric keypad codes, safe combinations, hidden document or valuables locations, and other confidential information.

Even your vehicle may be targeted with a GPS tracker, allowing criminals to monitor your movements. This surveillance could be employed to determine when you’re away from sensitive locations, facilitating easier access, or tracking you to places with crucial information or hidden assets. Bug sweep detection services are fundamental yet vital for maintaining physical security, encompassing yourself, your property, your vehicles, essential information, and other valuable business assets.

EPIS stands out as the Top-Rated Los Angeles Investigative Firm for 2022, excelling in locating and neutralizing threats from planted or embedded bugs in Hollywood homes and offices. Our skilled investigators bring expertise, diverse backgrounds, and experience to intuitive counter-surveillance, working diligently to ensure the security of our clients and their property. Trust EPIS for comprehensive bug sweep detection services to safeguard your privacy and assets.

Computer Monitoring Software & Devices

The landscape of computer monitoring software and devices is in constant flux. Within a small component of a jump drive, concealed software can seek out passwords, enabling criminals to pilfer crucial financial and personal information. A discreet device hidden in your computer keyboard can capture keystrokes, transmitting them to an external monitoring device and effectively stealing your passwords while recording every online search.

While not as technically advanced or well-known as online hackers, these covert detection devices or software are more prevalent and easier to utilize. It takes only moments to install or place them on nearby furnishings with access to your home or office computer. Simply using an unfamiliar or new plug-in memory device could be all it takes to compromise your secure data and password information.

EPIS investigators boast extensive training and experience in counter-surveillance, equipped with the latest tools and methods to detect and eliminate these invasive bugs and software applications. Trust EPIS to safeguard your digital privacy and protect your valuable information from unauthorized access.

Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM)

Detecting and eliminating bugs and other surveillance devices after the fact may not be enough. By the time you discover them, your data could be compromised, your valuable property missing, and your personal habits and schedule common knowledge. For comprehensive security, adopting a multilayered approach that includes Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) is essential.

TSCM involves various measures such as in-place monitoring systems, wireless intrusion detection devices, random schedule manual bug sweeps, and other effective means. An EPIS security consultant can assess your specific needs and vulnerabilities, designing a complete system to maintain a high level of security for yourself, your family, your home, office, and other critical locations in your life. Trust EPIS for thorough Technical Surveillance Countermeasures to safeguard your privacy and protect your vital information.

Electronic Counter-surveillance

Covert Transmitter

Covert transmitters, which transmit conversations to a listening post, pose a significant threat to privacy. Telephone transmitters intercept conversations or fax-data transmissions through telephone lines, draining operational power directly from the line. EPIS investigators are equipped to detect and neutralize these threats.

Covert Video Cameras

When audio interception is insufficient, covert video cameras can transmit live video via radio or wire. EPIS utilizes cutting-edge technology to uncover and eliminate covert surveillance devices, ensuring your privacy.

Covert Radio Transmitters

Covert radio transmitters can use traditional modulation or advanced digital systems, making detection challenging. EPIS employs specialized instruments and trained technicians to reveal the presence of these devices.

Time Domain Reflectometer (TDR)

For bug sweeping of telephone, electrical, and data lines, EPIS utilizes a Time Domain Reflectometer (TDR). This instrument checks any type of line, even under power, indicating the presence of abnormalities and parasites.

Warning Signs of Covert Surveillance

Be vigilant for warning signs that may indicate covert surveillance:

  • Non-authorized individuals are aware of personal or secret facts and documents.
  • Confidential meetings, documents, projects, and tenders are no longer secret.
  • Unexplained sounds or changes in volume on your telephone line.
  • Unexpected gifts or appliances appear in your office or home.
  • Suspect vehicles frequently park near your office or home.
  • Strange interferences on your Hi-Fi or TV system.
  • Utility technicians make unrequested maintenance calls.
  • Un-authorized persons enter your offices or home without theft.

If you observe these signs, you may be the target of covert surveillance. Contact EPIS for a confidential consultation or counter-surveillance sweep. Discuss your decision only with those who need to know and call from a secure phone.

How A Counter-Surveillance Sweep Is Conducted

Upon arriving at the sweeping site with our mobile counter-surveillance laboratory, EPIS Investigative Technicians conduct inspections during weekends or after office hours. The sweep includes:

  • Radio-spectrum analysis to identify covert audio or video transmitters.
  • Electronic and physical examination of telephone systems to identify covert listening devices.
  • Examination of rooms, furniture, and fixtures with a Non-Linear Junction Detector.
  • LASER and Infra-Red spectrum analysis to identify surveillance systems.
  • Examination of electrical and electronic cables and acoustic leak examination.
  • Physical structure examination of the entire site.
  • Computer security examination for surveillance software or hardware applications.

EPIS applies anti-tamper seals to all inspected systems and areas, ensuring the highest level of security.


EPIS recognizes the growing threats contained within cellular phones, fax machines, and copy machines. Our recent research indicates that while criminals use advanced information transfer equipment, many business professionals communicate through unprotected networks. EPIS offers de-bugging services to eliminate electronic listening devices, ensuring your communication remains secure. Trust our special unit, equipped with experienced professionals, to guarantee 100% successful de-bugging.
