‘Investigation’ or ‘surveillance’, as the term implies is not just explained as form of science, but rather a subtle form of art. The act is hard to adopt over a few months or years, since it takes years of rigorous training and experience through trial and error procedures to reach to perfection. In this regard, domestic investigations are conducted by pros who are aware of various situations at the home front and know it better how to gather the strewed clues to get to a hint.
Domestic investigations- Not an easy job
Family forms an integral part of society. But every family comes with different shades, which pronounce its true colours when forced under the scanner of surveillance. With hatred and emotional turmoil spiralling gravely inside homes, domestic violence has become a common issue. Investigators often need to deal with tirades of exciting and emotional drama inside the house.
Though both the spouses will claim for truth, an investigator needs to stay unbiased and balanced in his justification. Chances of getting swept away by any party is natural, therefore, the investigator needs to stay focused and discerning in assessing the ‘trues’ and falses’ in a case. In overall scrutiny, it is not an easy job as it may seem.
Cases of burglaries and thefts are common in wealthy houses. Domestic investigation is a strenuous task that needs the investigators to enquire every member of the family and understand their sentiments towards each other and towards family wealth. This will give a clear understanding whether they are involved in the violence in any case. Sometimes, domestic surveillance gives rise to financial investigations where an investigator has to be aware of financial integrities to catch the culprit.
The hardest task lies in understanding the psyche of every family member and getting an insight of their private affairs without getting them a hint about it. Any suspicious act ought to be put under the scanner for getting a justifiable hint. Thus, a hint will lead to the actual culprit at the end.
