Private Surveillance Investigations Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Darwin, Hobart, Adelaide, Brisbane, Gold Coast

We have provided professional surveillance services to hundreds of clients across Australia over the last 30 years. In that time, our experience, skills and technical abilities have evolved to suit the needs of the ever-changing domestic market and overcome the associated obstacles. Whether you’re looking to ease your suspicions of a dodgy baby-sitter, investigate a cheating partner with spouse surveillance, or even expose a potential crime, we can help.

Each of our private investigators employs the utmost diligence, discretion and attention to detail when engaging in any surveillance operation, making it all the easier for our clients to make their next big decision.

What is a Private Investigator Surveillance Service?

By definition, undertaking surveillance involves observing, recording and documenting a given subject and their respective activities over a specified timeframe. As such, our private investigators are able to monitor homes, remote locations, businesses, friends, family, partners, assets and more.

We will usually allocate one operative to begin observations over a given address, for a prescribed amount of time, as per your instructions, but you can request to have more. Over that period, we will film, photograph and note all relevant activities pertinent to your case, collate those findings and then present them in a comprehensive report. Whether you’re based in Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia, Western Australia, Queensland, the Northern Territory or Tasmania, we can provide the support you need.

Please note: Our private detective surveillance experts will always work to an allotted timeframe. However, and depending on the case in question, it can take as little as a few hours or as long as a few months to finalise – but, rest assured, we will always keep you informed and updated about your case as we go.

We provide our clients with regular updates regarding the status of their case. With this, we can work in new intelligence and increase the chances of documenting relevant activity as and when new addresses, contacts or other information comes to light.For those clients looking to invest their money into something meaningful, you should know that Australia suffers one of the highest economic crime rates of any country in the world. With that in mind, it’s more important than ever to consider the expertise of a professional, or team thereof, in helping you to understand your risks before it’s too late.

How Precise Investigation Works

The accuracy of the information provided in a background check is of the utmost importance to us, considering that any errors could jeopardise not only the person or item of interest’s reputation, but that of yours and ours as well – it is with that that we strive to employ every conceivable investigative method, database, resource and network available to gain, analyse, cross-reference and compile the material for the reports we produce. Furthermore, we also understand that any mistakes on our part can lead to major court cases down the line, so we take every step possible to ensure the utmost precision in the results we provide.

How a Surveillance Services Work

Depending on the complexity of your particular case, we generally follow a three-step approach to all domestic (private) cases:

1. Brief

Once you’ve made contact with Precise Investigation, we will then arrange a suitable time to meet or speak over the phone. During this process, we’ll ask a few questions about the subject and the specifics of your case. This provides our investigators with the means to accurately identify, locate and then observe your chosen subject

2. The Surveillance

Following the completion of a detailed brief, one or more of our professionals will set about engaging the suspect with the utmost discretion. We take photographs, record video and compile detailed reports of the subject’s activities for your review. We will always adhere to your instructions as best possible, whilst keeping our observations and the approach we take to them well within the limits of the law.

3. Reports

When new information comes to light, Precise Investigation will compile those findings into an accurate written report for your perusal. The aim of these documents is to provide you with a reliable means to making informed decisions about your next move, whether it be to file for divorce, hire a different babysitter, report a crime or a wide range of other important life choices.

We provide three types of infidelity and private detective surveillance services, each of which is specifically tailored to you and your case’s exact requirement

Covert Observations:

This is our most frequently requested form of surveillance and what most people think of when they hear “private investigation.” Covert observations involve assigning an investigator to a case, where the person of interest is monitored without their knowledge or consent. Covert surveillance is usually employed in cases where a person is suspected of engaging in secretive or illegal activities and the client wishes to gather evidence of those activities without the subject becoming aware of the investigator’s presence.


EXAMPLE: IF YOU BELIEVE YOUR WIFE OR HUSBAND TO BE HAVING AN AFFAIR, BUT DON’T INTEND FOR THEM TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR SUSPICIONS, COVERT OR  INFIDELITY SURVEILLANCE WOULD BE THE MOST APPROPRIATE WAY TO GATHER INFORMATION ABOUT THEIR ACTIVITIES.

Overt Observations:

Overt surveillance isn’t a very common choice for people wishing to employ the services of a private investigator, but that’s not to say the service is never requested. Overt services are the act of openly monitoring a person of interest – i.e. the subject is aware that they are being observed, whether they have agreed to it or not. As such, this type of examination is typically employed as a preventative measure, or to expose the activities taking place around the subject.


Example: Fitting a “wire” or hidden camera to a person would be classified as overt surveillance to the person wearing it.

Static Observations:
