Our modus operandi: Shadowing

As a supremely efficient means of surveillance, shadowing (or tailing) is the ultimate tool in the field of investigation. This operation, which requires appropriate training and vast experience in the field, makes it possible to gather crucial information which cannot be obtained by any other means.

On the basis of an unusual approach to physical surveillance and innovative surveillance techniques, UMBRA Investigations is able to provide each of its clients with a guarantee of highly reliable and professional services.

The art of shadowing (tailing)

On the basis of supporting videos and/or photos, this process actually makes it possible to accurately retrace the events and actions of the subject being followed, irrespective of how the subject travels about.

However, if this process is not managed delicately, it can be catastrophic for the client whose interests may be completely undermined, especially if the investigators show a lack of discretion or lose sight of the subject being followed.
