Houston Private Detectives And The Technology They Use

Updated on March 24, 2011

Just like with installing cameras in a work place, employees will become accustomed to each eye in the sky, and forget about their presence. When this happens they relax and go back to their counter productive or thieving ways right in front of the lens.

Houston Private Investigators Use Social Media

All it takes is for a private investigator Houston TX to make the person they are collecting information about, a friend, and they are off to the races. This will allow them to befriend all of the people in their list, and essentially, they have bugged their target, and only have to wait for intelligence gathering.
