Summary: This was an unexpected encounter with clients in a professional environment but one that demonstrates the importance of maintaining a suitable attitude for work
After discovering some inappropriate articles in one of the company vehicles that he was responsible for cleaning and caring for a man contacted a private detective. As a trusted and valued employee of the company that he had been with for some time the client felt that he had a silent responsibility to find out what was going on behind the scenes of the company. As a company policy, cars were let out to those requiring them for business related tasks and errands on the condition that they were used respectfully and returned in the same condition. Once it was discovered that not everyone was adhering to this code of conduct, action was taken.
After receiving the initial contact from the client the private detective agreed that the best way to begin the investigation would be to consult with the client on their findings and gather information from the vehicle itself. Once this was done and the offensive materials, which were products of a sexual nature, were obtained it was agreed that the best course of action would be to use GPS tracking on the vehicle to see where it was heading combined with a covert surveillance system to identify the individuals involved. Once these two systems were in place the detective was ready to proceed with the investigation.
From the outset of the investigation it became clear that the case would proceed quickly, as within hours of the initial set up of equipment, several individuals were recorded entering the designated vehicle whilst making inappropriate jokes before they departed the garage where the car was stored. They then proceeded to a nearby area renowned for the sexual activities that took place there. Further surveillance was used for the three hours they spent in the location where woman were invited to join them in the car before they became intimate. Following this episode the car was returned in an inappropriate state with no guilt or remorse on their part.
The surveillance footage obtained demonstrated that several individuals had been using the vehicle for not only personal errands but also highly inappropriate activities, the full extent of which was recorded using the surveillance technology. Needless to say, the client’s employer was appalled by the behavior exhibited and as a result a new system was employed to ensure that all company property was properly respected. Following the investigation the client approached his superiors at the company and ensured that the proper disciplinary action be taken against all of the individuals involved in the case.
Spotlight on GPS Tracking
GPS tracking is a method of investigation that is better known as vehicle tracking. It involves the attachment of a small and discreet tracking device to the underneath of an identified vehicle that will remain attached throughout the investigation period. Once in place this device can be used to record the movements of the vehicle, the locations it travels to and stops at and how long it stops there for as well as speed. The equipment uses technology similar to that employed by satellite navigation systems that mean that it is transportable over wide distances.
