Counter Surveillance

Investigation of modern crimes such as extortion, robbery, kidnapping, murder and break-ins, has proven that the criminals usually apply to their victims traditional surveillance procedures and methods. They discover the victims' routes, amount of guards, working schedules and breaks, etc... it is hard and sometimes even impossible to discover that you are under surveillance without professional assistance, the best way to get rid of surveillance is to use professional counter-surveillance service. EPIS has a special unit specializing in this type of service.

Counter Surveillance Investigation

Counter surveillance refers to measures undertaken to prevent surveillance, including covert surveillance. Counter surveillance may include electronic methods such as bug sweeping, the process of detecting surveillance devices, including covert listening devices and visual surveillance devices. More often than not, counter surveillance will employ a set of actions that, when followed, reduce the risk of surveillance.

Counter surveillance is the art of performing surveillance on those who are performing surveillance themselves and is used to ensure that the target is not being followed or under surveillance from another source. For instance, on one of the Counter surveillance cases, our client hired one of our counter surveillance private investigators to watch see who was following him, he become aware that someone is following him around and videotaping his activities. The client then hired Counter Surveillance investigators to identify the people watching him and to determine who hired them.

In another case, Counter surveillance is used in cases where someone may be stalking another person. Stalkers attempt to follow and determine the patterns and activities of their targets. Counter surveillance can be used to determine who is responsible for the stalking without alerting the stalker or causing the stalker to withdraw. If the stalker withdrew, it would make it impossible to identify and neutralize their threat. Counter surveillance is an extremely difficult surveillance operation. Not only is the investigator attempting to perform surveillance on someone that may be proficient in surveillance techniques themselves, but they must do it without being detected during times when that person is performing surveillance and is, therefore, actively monitoring their surroundings.

My Son found Mike at Empire Pacific because we needed a detective in order to find someone. We had spend a lot of time and money on many search people websites and never found anything current on the person we were trying to find. We hired Mike to do an initial check to find the person. Mike called and said on the initial check that he had found what we needed, he said the second step would be to go look by foot and there would be a fee per hour. About 2 hours later Mike called and told us he had found the person and gave me his current phone number. I called and sure enough it was the person I was looking for. Now this shows how honest Mike is because he could have easily billed me for a few extra hours of leg work (which is paid per the hour) and I would not have known he already found the person. Mike was very attentive when I called and either picked up his phone or called me back very fast. I would highly recommend Mike, he is vey good at what he does and is respectful, honest and FAST!

Mike Hakimi from EPIS is a true professional. He helped me with my case. He delivers effectively and fast! I was trying to find someone that nobody has heard from him from since the late 90's, I was very unsure he was still around. I needed to find him and interview him for my movie project. A key character. And Mike incredibly found him. Don't hesitate hiring Mike for any type of service.

I have highest, highest praise for Mike at Empire Pacific Investigative Services. I had to take someone to court and I was concerned whether sheriff is efficient enough to do the serving or they will just attempt and I pay for nothing. I talked to Mike about serving this particular person and on top of it I try to force future steps of collection and Mike was extremely helpful to show me in and outs of all the options that I have and how he can help me.

My concern was the person that I am suing would play hide and seek, not available during the day and difficult to catch. Sure enough Mike served the paper within 2 to 3 days and informed me accordingly.

I am so happy to know Mike and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone that has needs for his services.

I contacted Mike at Empire to do some research for me on an old insurance claim. It ended up not being along the lines of work that he was an expert in but what was so great about the experience was that Mike went out of his way to find me someone that did specialize in the area. If you are considering a couple options on who you need for your investigation you...
