Techniques Our Private Investigators May Use

When a private investigator undertakes a criminal investigation, the overall goal is to use surveillance and analysis to ascertain exactly what happened when a crime was allegedly committed. The specific techniques that are utilized vary by case, but it typically involves some of the following practices:

Criminal Records Search

There is no single database that provides a complete record of all criminal convictions in all jurisdictions, therefore Ciccotti & Buckley utilizes several private investigation-centric databases to obtain a broad view of an individual’s record to identify potential problem areas or concerns. Courthouse and judicial system searches still remain the most accurate method of obtaining criminal records to ascertain valid information.

Witness Interviews

Our investigators interview witnesses and/or associated individuals and provide recorded interviews and transcripts to assist clients with cases.

Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM)

Ciccotti & Buckley utilizes the most up-to-date equipment to conduct TSCM operations of your home, office, or automobile.

Computer Forensics/Computer Crime

Ciccotti & Buckley has the expertise to collect and analyze data from computer operating systems, networks, wireless communications, and storage devices. Our experts have vast experience in the discipline and can provide courtroom testimony.

Some Types of Cases Our Private Investigators Focus On

Civil Suits

In many instances, civil cases are much more common than criminal cases and include divorces, product liability suits, evictions, accident cases, and many other categories. Ciccotti & Buckley can assist with the proper and appropriate compilation of civil suit records, as well as by searching through jurisdictions where the individual has previously resided.

Corporate Crime

  • Undercover Operations: Ciccotti & Buckley utilizes undercover investigators when criminal activity is affecting a business and the business transactions or details are unknown. Get the proof you need to bring it to a reasonable conclusion.
  • Employee Theft/Embezzlement: Ciccotti & Buckley investigators use state-of-the-art techniques to provide well-planned and thorough professional investigations of workplaces to detect and ultimately eliminate internal theft.

Wellness/Activity Check

This service is essential for fraud prevention for insurance carriers when abuse of illness/accident compensation is suspected. In most cases, our trained investigators discuss the claimant’s current health situation, document physical activities, and photographic verification. When discreteness and non-direct contact is required, Ciccotti & Buckley investigators canvass neighborhoods to determine the claimant’s current activities.

Workers’ Compensation Fraud

Ciccotti & Buckley is knowledgeable of the various forms of workers’ compensation fraud and can skillfully evaluate suspected fraudulent behavior and provide documented results.
