Capitol Inquiry’s investigators are skilled in the art and techniques of conducting moving and static surveillance. A successful surveillance operation in the Washington, D.C. area usually requires two surveillance vehicles and more than two surveillance specialists, in the event that an investigator needs to jump out of a vehicle to follow the subject on foot or on public transportation. Planning a surveillance operation requires being ready for such surprises and un-anticipated movements. If the client’s budget does not permit the use of two or more surveillance vehicles and investigators, Capitol Inquiry will consent to using just one vehicle and one surveillance specialist with the client’s full understanding that there is a greater chance of losing the subject at a red light, or through an un-expected change of lanes and sudden turn that the investigator cannot follow without being detected. The use of multiple vehicles and investigators also permits switching on and off in the pursuit, which lessens the risk of detection.
