Spouse GPS Tracking
SPI uses the latest equipment and technology to covertly track the movements of a cheating spouse. These units can be placed discreetly on a vehicle and monitored by the investigator from his computer. The unit will provide us the direction of travel, the speed, the route, and departure and arrival time. When we see the vehicle at a suspicious location then we go into action to identify the location and if there is improper behavior on the part of the target subject video is obtained for evidence purposes. GPS has proven to be a very important took in surveillance. Sometimes the vehicle will drive down a dead end road or a remote back road. These routes have very little vehicle traffic and if the target is suspicious, they will be able to determine if they are being followed. Without GPS, those type situations would require a minimum of two investigators and most of the time several more. With GPS we are able to keep the cost of man hours to a minimum and let the GPS do the work for us. These units contain extended battery power and last approximately two to three weeks, depending on the driving habits of the target. We have caught over 350 cheating spouses since we began our business in 1996
Examples of GPS Tracking
In November 2010 we had placed a GPS unit on a husband’s vehicle that was suspected of having an affair. The girlfriend’s house was the only house in the subdivision. All of the other lots had not been developed due to the economy. Since hers was the only house, the only vehicle traffic would be going to her house and all others would be very suspicious. During surveillance prior to the GPS, we could never place the husband’s vehicle at the house. It then was suspected he was parking inside of the garage and out of view. We put the GPS on his vehicle and within two days had him placed at the girlfriend’s house. Even though he was parked inside of the garage and out of view, the GPS indicated he was there. We took pictures of the house showing his vehicle was not in the driveway. Then we had supporting evidence showing when he departed the residence and returned home. During the week of Thanksgiving he told his wife he was going to Florida on a business trip. The GPS indicated he went to girlfriend’s house and picked her up and went to a very expensive hotel in the Buckhead area. We identified the hotel from the GPS and the attorney issued subpoenas for the hotel and obtained the registration and other documents confirming their overnight “business trip”.
Last summer we placed a GPS unit on a husband’s truck. His wife suspected he was cheating. He told her he was going to Panama City with a friend on a golfing trip. Well he was truthful about the Florida part. He left his residence and picked up his best friend and they headed south. He made a stop in Columbus to visit a “girlfriend” for a short time. Then he and his buddy continued to Panama City Beach. There he checked into a motel and we began surveillance. They went out that evening to the local clubs and came back late. They both were very intoxicated. The next day they spent the day on the beach and met some other women on the beach, but overall they behaved themselves. The next day the left Panama City and traveled toward Destin. There they met two women for lunch and then headed to the beach. While on the beach, the husband was observed engaged in heavy kissing and hugging with one of the women. It was obvious this meeting had been pre-scheduled. In fact if you view the video on the Cheating spouse page you will see him and the female standing on the beach embracing. After spending the day at the beach, they packed up and headed into town. We were able to identify where the woman lived and identified her and located her employment at a local resort and her picture was on the web site. The client and her attorney were very pleased with the results. The couple recently divorced. We could not have followed him for over 6 hours without the use of the GPS.
Over the years Southern Professional Investigations has received numerous request for the rental or lease of our GPS units. Normally we have only rented out the unit in conjunction with a case we are working.
Over the years Southern Professional Investigations has received numerous request for the rental or lease of our GPS units. Normally we have only rented out the unit in conjunction with a case we are working. However we have come to realize that some people just want to lease the unit and monitor their spouse or child on their own. Sometimes they don't require additional surveillance, but just want to see where the spouse or child is going. Within the next week we will begin to rent out our GPS units to anyone in the country. There are a few conditions that have to be met. First the client will sing an contract acknowledging the GPS will be used according to the applicable laws in their state and in no way used for illegal purposes. The client will acknowledge that they will assume full responsibility and accountability for how they use the GPS tracker and in no way will hold Southern Professional Investigations liable for their actions. It will be the client's responsibility to research the laws of their state both local, stated and federal. In fact we strongly encourage the client consult with an attorney before using the GPS tracker.
Upon signing the contract you will be shipped a top of the line GPS tracker that is second to none. The mapping software is the most accurate and up to date information in real time tracking. The GPS tracker is operational in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The mapping software is licensed and legal to use. Unlike some other companies that may use the same mapping software, but do not pay the licensing fees and could be shut down at any time. In addition this is how they get by with charging such low rates.
Our rates are by the week, with a decrease in the amount for each additional week of rental. There is a deposit required for each rental unit which will be fully refunded upon the return of the GPS unit.
The client will be able to log in to their individual unit with a login name and password to monitor the unit. You will be able to set up GEO fence alerts where text or email will be sent to you notifying you the GPS tracker has entered or departed the GEO fence area. You will also be able to download a daily report to show the exact times, locations, and speed of the unit.
These units have been used by Southern Professional Investigations for several years, and in our opinion the best real time tracking units on the market. The batteries last up to four (4) weeks and the updates can be set as low as every 20 seconds.
