Private investigators are operatives who have been vetted, and licensed, in Queensland, to investigate, to gather private information, evidence, and conduct surveillance, for reward. What we do is a legitimate, authorised, way of gathering information. Private investigator surveillance, factual investigation, and research, done correctly, is legal. A witness in a criminal case is not 'owned' by either prosecution nor defence, and it is open for either side (or their representative) to ask questions. You will find some police allege that this is 'interfering with a witness' and have been known to threaten private investigators, however, this position is incorrect, they don't 'own' the witness. It is reasonable for the accused, where they are not guilty, to request a matter be investigated.
Factual investigation is about talking to people, finding out information, gathering evidence, conducting interviews, and taking affidavits. it is a large component of most criminal and civil actions, including criminal defence. It can include obtaining specialist examination of evidence, such as forensic examinations of computers, to generate expert testimony for court, expert evidence.
Be wary when considering the examination of a computer system, consider if you have a 'right' or authority to do so, because there are a number of criminal offences under the Queensland Criminal Code (specifically S. 408E re access, plus simple offences such as stealing), as well as civil actions if the computer is the property of a business. it may be prudent to consider a court order for examination, under some circumstances. This brings us to another point. We do not 'hack' a computer, system, or social media, to which a person has no right, because that would put us breach of the law. If you own the device, or have permission, then that becomes lawful.
As stated earlier, private investigator surveillance, done correctly, is legal. We are aware of the requirements for lawful surveillance. We are licensed to conduct it. Surveillance is the observation of an unaware subject to observe their actions, and interactions, and for the private investigator this includes recording video evidence or still images to support those observations. This is the most unintrusive form of investigation, generally, right up until the time it is revealed to the subject. It is recommended that you do not threaten the subject with surveillance prior to our engagement. It is also recommended that you do not reveal the surveillance until you have obtained sufficient evidence.
Surveillance evidence is accepted by courts, and tribunals. It has two uses. The first is to disprove or dispute a 'fact' stated by the other side, the second is to support a position that you have taken. It is preferable that surveillance be supported by factual investigation evidence, such as affidavits.
Private investigator research is another area of investigation, where private and public indices, social media, and open source information, is combined with years of experience to search for an address, a location, a criminal history, or a background. Research is used for skip tracing, where a debtor has skipped, and searching for a birth parent. It is a component of most criminal, civil, private drug investigations, and relationship suspicion inquiries.
