Professional Investigative Services

Polaris Investigations specializes in Reconnaissance, Surveillance and Intelligence (RSI).  Adapted from the U.S. Intelligence Community and armed services, RSI is a critical part in planning a strategy and ultimately achieving your objective.  Polaris Investigations has taken the that concept and applied it to private investigations and litigation services.  RSI is about information and knowledge.  Effective RSI capabilities are essential and can be the difference between winning and losing as well as saving time and money.

What is RSI for Private Investigations?

"Recon" is conducted early in the investigative process or whenever there is a substantial change in persons, locations or activities.  Part intelligence process and part surveillance process, Recon provides the "ground truth" necessary to ensure a successful surveillance.  There is no substitute for thorough mission planning and comprehensive reconnaissance of the involved subjects and locations.
  • Ground & Mobile Surveillance for the purpose of Surveillance Mission Planning
  • UAS (Drone) Aerial Imagery for Controlled and Prohibitive Access Locations
  • Photographic and Videographic Documentation of the "Hot Zones" to get a sense of the Patterns of Life, Common Routes of Travel and any potential Unknown Factors ("alligators") before they strike
  • PI Safety Considerations and Routes of Eggress 


Solid intelligence generation is great but is only the beginning.  The next step is to take the knowledge gained and create evidence that can be used by your clients.  Surveillance captures and documents the evidence needed to move your case closer to a positive outcome.
