Undercover Operations

Being undercover is disguising one's own identity or using an assumed identity for the purposes of gaining the trust of an individual or organization to learn secret information or to gain the trust of targeted individuals in order to gain information or evidence.

Undercover Operation means an investigation involving a series of related undercover activities over a period of time by an undercover employee. For purposes of These Guidelines, a "series of related undercover activities" generally consists of more Than three separate substantive contacts by an undercover employee with the Individual under investigation. However, undercover activity involving sensitive or Fiscal circumstances constitutes an undercover operation regardless of the number of Contacts involved. A contact is "substantive" if it is a communication with another Person, whether by oral, written, wire, or electronic means, which includes information of Investigative interest.

Undercover Operations are essential to the detection, prevention, and prosecution of white collar crimes, public corruption, terrorism, organized crime, offenses involving controlled substances, and other priority areas of investigation. However, these techniques inherently involve an element of deception and may require cooperation with persons whose motivation and conduct are open to question, and so should be carefully considered and monitored.

With EPIS undercover agents, we can help uncover theft of products or equipments, drug usage and dealing in work place, sexual harassment in bars, restaurants and offices and other problems that may confront your establishment. A well-planned undercover operation can be important to keep your company free from these types of embarrassing and costly problems. It is always clear that during the course of an undercover investigation that the only way to find either the source or the extend of the problem within the organization is to insert one of our undercover investigators.

Empire Pacific Investigative Services Inc., undercover investigators are discreet, professionally conducted, and legal. The undercover investigation will normally be carried out by one of our representatives taking an undercover position (posing as a co-worker, contractor, client, friend etc.). Vital evidence will be obtained as the undercover agent mixes and recorded on audio and/or video tape, together with detailed case notes. The evidence will be presented and if necessary interviews can then be carried out to obtain further information.

Issues where and undercover operation could resolve your problems:

  • If you suspect that a crime is being conducted in your organization
  • Theft of equipments / products
  • Employees using drugs in work place
  • Employees distributing drugs and sale at the work environment
  • Sexual harassment
  • Steeling ideas or products to competitors before being introduced.
  • Fraud

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 was searching for a family relative, for over 40+ years with no such luck. So I decided to find a private investigator. I contacted Mike at Empire Pacific Investigative Services and in the same day he found the person I was looking for easily. I was so blown away! This service is AAA+ and I would definitely use them again, again and again! Thank you Mike!

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...
