Investigative Services

Surveillance Services

Neptune SurveillanceSurveillance is the tried and true tool of the private investigator; in fact, it is one of the best options for recording an individual’s movements, one’s actions when they require close scrutiny. Whether we are tracking the movements of a business partner, an unfaithful spouse or an individual perpetrating a personal injury insurance scam, our team of investigators will inconspicuously observe the individuals in question and provide you with a complete and detailed written report accompanied by video and/or still photographs, in a timely fashion.

Person Locates

Neptune People LocatesWe have the tools, knowledge, and professional training that allow us to locate long lost loved ones, dead beat parents, or witnesses, quickly and affordably. There is an extensive variety of internet based search engines and paid information services available to try and find someone yourself. Unfortunately, even these tools have their limitations, and finding a witness is not the most effective use of your time. Locating subjects begins with collecting as much information as possible about the subject. The information must then be analyzed and verified. We, at DLG Investigators have access to proprietary databases not normally available to the general public; these databases assist us in locating subjects quickly and efficiently. When all the databases and information collected prove to be lacking, we must resort to old fashion investigative work, knocking on doors and interviewing third parties in order to track and locate the subject. Please give us a call to discuss locating even the most elusive subject.

Here are some of the types of subjects whom we have located:

  • Witnesses
  • Deadbeat Dads and Moms
  • Former Clients
  • Debtors
  • Runaways

Background Investigations

Neptune Background ChecksHaving all the facts can make or break your pleadings, depositions or even your case. We can assist you as you search for the truth about a new employee, new business relationship, new babysitter, new boy or girl friend. We can uncover all you need to know about a person when it’s truly important to you, our client.

Our investigators can tailor a background investigation to your needs, providing you with the information you require in a timely manner. Our investigators will dig deep to find out a person’s real background, using databases that search public records, in-person interviews, review of courthouse documents, conversations with law enforcement, and if needed, surveillance.

As licensed private investigators, our background results are based on current, timely information, current searches, public records and up to date databases, not cheap internet search engines whose results can be outdated by years. We have access to proprietary databases not normally available to the general public which assist us with obtaining the information required to provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision. We are results oriented, trained professionals, who know how to get the right information for you.

  • Individuals’ names and addresses, including past & present addresses

Interviewing & Statements

Neptune Investigative StatementsA legal case is only as strong as the evidence that supports it. Strong evidence must be thoroughly documented whether it be by written word, video or photographic documentation or demonstrative means. What witnesses know may help, but it also may not. Our investigators who conduct interviews and obtain statements have hundreds of hours of training in interviewing, interrogations and statement taking skills, and possess extensive backgrounds in law enforcement which provides them with the unique ability to accurately document the interview and statement in a professional manner. When you require detailed statements for your case, our investigators review all the facts pertaining to your case, and thoroughly prepare for a pre-statement interview. Once the interview is completed, a formal statement is recorded. All statements are accompanied by professionally written investigative reports.

We are flexible when scheduling witness statements, striving to facilitate a convenient meeting location.

We ask the right kinds of questions, which are thoroughly documented and recorded in at least one of the following methods:

  • Type written statements
  • Videotaped statements
  • Telephone interview/statements

Forensic Image Analysis

Neptune Forensic Image AnalysisForensic image analysis includes the examination, evaluation, analysis, enhancement, authentication, comparison, and measurement of photographs to determine if they are what they purport to be, if they depict real events, and whether or not they have been altered. Our expert analyzes and compares a person or object in a photo to another to determine if they are the same, different, or have common characteristics. This may include comparisons of people, clothing, or vehicles involved in crimes or accidents, or other objects of evidence in photographs, etc.

Crime Scene Analysis and Review

This consists of the complete review of reports, photographs and diagrams to ascertain whether the correct forensic and technical principles have been applied while processing the scene and any evidence related to the scene. Some of the technical specialties our experts review are the crime scene photography, evidence collection, latent evidence, ballistics, and blood spatter evidence in order to correctly reconstruct the crime scene. This would not imply that the crime scene processing, evidence collection, or analysis have not been correctly executed, but may not have been completely examined, incorrectly identified, or complete laboratory testing may not have been undertaken. Crime Scene investigation is not only about the inclusion of a person or suspect, but the exclusion of a person or potential subject of interest. This analytical review of your client’s case can reveal facts that may be relevant to your case litigation.

Latent Fingerprint Processing and Analysis

This is the detection, collection, preservation, analysis and presentation in court of fingerprint evidence in cases of homicide, arson, rape, robbery, various other major crimes, and vehicular death. Fingerprints can be one of the best forms of evidence linking a person to a particular item of evidence or crime scene. We can provide expert latent fingerprint processing utilizing the latest methods, along with comparison and identification of unknown fingerprints to known fingerprints not only in crime scene investigations but also in other types of cases.

Fingerprints can be found in three different forms:

  • Latent fingerprints are those that are not readily visible without some sort of processing. Processing can include the application of powders, or the use of chemicals or visualization of light energy.
  • Patent fingerprints are those that are readily visible without any enhancement. These prints can include ones in blood, grease, or oil. Patent prints are generally documented through photography.
  • Plastic prints are three-dimensional impressions in substances such as putty, soap, or a soft ply able compound.
