Aerial Surveillance - Legal Eye in the Sky.

Private investigators from companies like Legal Eye Investigations, LLC are often tasked with gathering information and evidence for their clients, whether it's to investigate fraud, conduct surveillance, or locate missing persons. While traditional investigative techniques such as interviews and background checks can be effective, new technologies such as drones offer unique opportunities for private investigators to gather information and evidence more efficiently and effectively.

Drones, also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), are sm

all aircraft that can be controlled remotely. They are equipped with cameras and other sensors that can capture high-resolution images and videos from unique vantage points, such as from above a building or a remote location. This can be especially useful for private investigators, as drones can provide a safe and discreet way to conduct surveillance, monitor properties, and gather information.

Here are some of the ways that private investigators from Legal Eye Investigations, LLC can use drones in their work:

Surveillance: Drones can be used to monitor the activities of individuals, vehicles, and properties from a safe and discreet distance. This can be especially useful in cases where traditional surveillance methods are difficult or impossible, such as when the subject is in a remote location or is constantly on the move.

Search and Rescue: Drones can be used to search for missing persons or lost property in areas that are difficult to access. They can cover large areas quickly and provide a unique perspective that may be difficult to obtain using traditional search methods.

Site inspections: Drones can be used to inspect construction sites, properties, or other locations to gather information and evidence. They can capture high-resolution images and videos that can be used to identify potential safety hazards, document the condition of a property, or gather evidence for legal proceedings.

Security: Drones can be used to patrol and monitor properties or events, providing an additional layer of security and surveillance. They can detect potential threats and provide real-time information to security personnel, allowing them to respond more quickly and effectively.

However, it is important to note that the use of drones for surveillance may be subject to federal and state regulations, including those related to privacy and data protection. Private investigators from Legal Eye Investigations, LLC should be aware of these regulations and obtain any necessary permits or permissions before using drones in their investigations. Additionally, the use of drones may also be subject to local ordinances and restrictions, and investigators should always respect people's privacy and follow ethical and legal guidelines in their work.

Drones offer a unique and powerful tool for private investigators from Legal Eye Investigations, LLC to gather information and evidence. While their use must be conducted in compliance with legal and ethical standards, drones can provide a valuable addition to a private investigator's toolkit.


Pre-surveillance activities: This means before a private investigator starts their surveillance investigation, they would survey the area for potential mobile or stationary positions, points of egress, and even major areas.

Surveillance: A private investigator can use the drone in real time. This is especially helpful in rural areas. Drones can help find routes for the subjects or provide a safer alternative for a private investigator performing surveillance investigations.

Scene reconstruction: No matter how good your map app on your mobile device is, it is never as up-to-date as it needs to be. Google Maps isn’t perfect.

Access to difficult areas: Some areas that are remote, mountainous, high points, or over water are perfect for drone investigations. This type of surveillance investigation is appealing for a private investigator as trees, and dense areas can limit their standard line of sight.

Surveying the land: This is useful for reconstruction purposes.

Covers more area: A drone can go where a private investigator can’t. This means to the other side of a building while the private investigator is on the opposite. In some states, “perching” the drone is perfectly legal, so a drone doesn’t always have to be in the air.

Drone & aerial surveillance offers a private investigator a cheaper alternative to other forms of aerial surveillance like chartering a plane or helicopter.

Private Investigators can use drone & aerial surveillance to locate the property that may be hidden from view by being in a person's backyard. It could also find the property that is deep in a construction site.

Drone & Aerial surveillance can be used to document construction sites, and disaster areas like sinkholes, or hurricane damage.
