I love that this company has ex-cops and veterans on staff. The initial installation had an issue but their staff (Phil) was tenacious and fixed it. Shawn, the owner, said customer service is their priority and I believe it. I've had the system a week and love the clarity of the cameras.

I am an attorney with a law firm in Tampa Bay. Jeff Barker has been our "go to" investigator and process server for years. Simply put he gets the job done. And fast. He is so knowledgeable in his craft that I can literally brain storm with Jeff on how to get a resolution that will benefit our mutual clients. I cannot say I have trusted the expertise and skill of any other investigator since I started my practice. I recommend Jeff without reservation.


We investigate all criminal cases, traffic, cheating partners, fraud, workman's compensation cases and video surveillance. We also provide tracking devices, or we will do the tracking for you, skip tracing and any other case that needs the truth to be known. There is no job too big or too small for the professionals. The investigators are retired deputy sheriff and bilingual. After every case you receive a full written detail report of your case so you will know what you have paid for.

Nelson was amazing! He cracked my case the very first day he followed "the mark"!!! The pictures he took were incredibly sharp and knew exactly what I needed to have appropriate proof. He was smart, careful and calculated and answered my calls always...listened to everything I said and was so kind and compassionate and gave realistic advice with the utmost respect and professionalism. I can't imagine anyone doing a better job. Thank you, Nelson!!!!
