If you suspect that you or your organization may be the target of electronic eavesdropping or technical surveillance, a private investigator with Legal Eye Investigations, LLC can help you by conducting a TSCM investigation. Here's how:

  1. Initial Consultation: The TSCM investigation process usually starts with an initial consultation, where the private investigator will discuss your concerns, goals, and specific needs. This will help the investigator to determine the scope of the investigation and tailor the TSCM sweep to your unique situation.

  2. Physical Inspection: The TSCM investigator will conduct a thorough physical inspection of the premises to identify potential vulnerabilities and any suspicious or out-of-place devices that may be used for spying. This may involve a visual inspection of the area, including walls, ceilings, furniture, and other objects.

  3. Electronic Detection: The TSCM investigator will use specialized electronic detection equipment to detect and locate any hidden surveillance devices. This may include radio frequency (RF) spectrum analysis, infrared (IR) detection, and other electronic surveillance countermeasures.

  4. Analysis and Report: The TSCM investigator will analyze the findings and provide you with a detailed report that outlines any potential security threats, vulnerabilities, and recommendations for mitigation. The report will also include a comprehensive list of any electronic surveillance devices that were detected during the investigation.

Here at Legal Eye Investigations, LLC. our agents conduct bug sweeps by using specialized electronic detection equipment and physical inspection to locate hidden surveillance devices. Here are some of the steps involved in the process:

  2. Non-Linear Junction Detection: The investigator may use non-linear junction detectors to detect electronic components that are commonly used in surveillance devices, such as transmitters and receivers.

  3. Thermal Imaging: The investigator may use thermal imaging cameras to detect heat signatures from electronic devices that are hidden behind walls or other structures.

  4. Physical Inspection: The investigator may conduct a visual and physical inspection of the area to identify any suspicious or out-of-place devices that may be used for spying. This may include a detailed examination of walls, ceilings, furniture, and other objects.

  5. Canine Detection: In some cases, a trained canine may be used to detect the presence of electronic surveillance devices. Dogs can be trained to detect specific scents associated with electronics and can help to identify hidden bugs.
