For surveillance footage to be accepted by a court it must be taken from a public place, or a private place with the permission of the owner or person in possession of that place (not a sneeky camera in a bedroom of a third party, recording images in a private place). Properly done, private investigator surveillance is legal. The video can become court evidence from surveillance, because private investigator surveillance, properly done, is legal. Hiring a licensed investigator is legal, they are permitted to conduct private investigator surveillance, to investigate, hence the evidence produced CAN be introduced into a court, a tribunal, or used for negotiation.
When recording footage for Surveillance purposes it is generally done covertly. Covert surveillance can include the use of miniature camera or hidden devices, or from a vehicle hide. It may involve things such as following people into a foyer, or an airport lobby. Surveillance evidence, private investigator surveillance evidence, is generally obtained from a public place, or from a private place with the permission of the person in control of that place. Private investigator surveillance doesn't always give perfect images, or see everything you would like recorded.
Using covert camera's means you have little control over framing or zoom. Framing is generally where you try to place the subject in either the left third, the middle third or the right third of the picture frame, and allow 10% above and below.
Surveillance footage is used for matrimonial matters (in some jurisdictions you still need to prove that there was infidelity), to confirm or deny a suspicion or verify a fact, to gather intelligence, for evidence in relation to workers compensation claims, to record evidence of damage or behaviour for court, to provide evidence of breach of orders or conditions and many similar uses. Many times a picture really is worth a thousand words; it is the unequivocal evidence of actions.
Generally speaking the client will be supplied with a surveillance journal, and supporting footage, at the completion of a task.
