Divorce/Cheaters/Child Custody

-

If you need one of our private investigators to work a cheaters or child custody case in the Nashville area, please be sure to contact us from a secure line. Today there are many electronic listening devices on the market, making it unsafe to talk on your home phone. Likewise, your cell phone is not the best way to call our office because cell phone records can easily be obtained and monitored. The best way to contact us is via pay phone, but not while you are sitting in your vehicle because there could be a listening device in your vehicle. Your employer’s phone may be used as well. We strongly advise against telling your friends, family or co-workers that you are considering hiring a private investigator, as most people cannot be discreet regarding this type of matter. If you have already discussed it with someone, please be sure that person keeps the matter confidential.

Once you have contacted our office in Nashville, Tennessee (TN) a licensed private investigator will confer with you and evaluate your case based on the information you provide. Meetings can be held at our office in Nashville, Tennessee (TN) or another location for your convenience. Once an investigation plan is in place, we will coordinate the investigation with you or your attorney. After the investigation is complete, The Jacobs Group will provide you or your attorney with a report and videotape. The Jacobs Group has extensive courtroom experience and training and you will be proud to have us testify on your behalf.

Surveillance

-

The art of surveillance is far more than just putting a warm body in a vehicle with a camera to monitor someone’s activities. The first thing you need to ask yourself when hiring an investigation company: Is the company just going through the motions and collecting your money, or are they an experienced company committed to doing the best job that can be done? The Jacobs Group has the latest advanced electronics and covert technology available to conduct the best investigation possible. Every private investigator at The Jacobs Group has been through many hours of training and is very familiar with the Nashville, Tennessee (TN) area. We have an outstanding success rate with surveillance.

Computer Forensics

-

Computers have become one of the easiest ways for people to meet without even leaving their home. There are millions of chat rooms on the Internet. Online pornography has also grown to unbelievable numbers. Email is another way people are staying in touch without leaving their home. Advanced forensic software can be used to search computers for existing files, passwords, deleted emails and other data files, chat room visits and website activity.

Electronic Debugging

-

Today many different listening devices on the market make it very simple to bug a home, vehicle or workplace. If you feel you are being recorded, it would be a wise decision to have The Jacobs Group come in and conduct an electronic bug sweep. Covert video cameras are now being used in homes and offices to watch your every move. We can detect and remove these systems.

Insurance Fraud

-

Our investigators are trained in the investigation of insurance fraud by an investigator with seven years’ on-the-job experience and training in the resolution of all types of questioned insurance claims from CNA Insurance Company and the American Educational Institute. Insurance companies estimate that many of the claims submitted contain some fraud, and the resolution of questioned claims saves the companies and their clients many thousands of dollars each year. The Jacobs Group is committed to finding the truth about questioned claims of all types for insurance companies, attorneys and businesses.

Interviews/Interrogations

-

Our investigators are trained in the art of interrogation and interview techniques, recorded and written statements, and Examinations Under Oath (EUO) by an investigator with years of experience and training by the FBI, TBI, and many interview/interrogation techniques schools and seminars. Obtaining timely and accurate statements can often make a difference in any investigation where information provided by participants and witnesses is critical.

Missing Persons/Runaways

-

Missing person cases may or may not be criminal in nature, but the same guidelines are used. Often such investigations are handled by computer-generated research, but many times it takes fieldwork to get the job done. The Jacobs Group has access to worldwide databases and other sources that most other private investigation companies do not. Our skip-tracing skills and contacts around the world are the best in the industry. We have a proven track record of finding missing persons and have found almost every person we have ever attempted to locate. If you feel your child has run away, contact us immediately. This is a matter that needs to be investigated by professionals as soon as possible.

Corporate Fraud and Security

-

There are many ways we can be of service in the corporate world — from shoplifting to employee theft and false liability claims to corporate espionage investigations. The Jacobs Group can tailor any investigation to meet your needs and your budget, including, but not limited to, undercover operations, surveillance and interviews or employee interrogations.

DNA Profiling

-

The Jacobs Group is well versed on the correct procedures used by the laboratory that contracts with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. We can determine and recommend if DNA profiling would be beneficial to your case. Paternity testing can also be very important to your case. The Jacobs Group can obtain and transport these samples to the lab.

Polygraph Testing

-

Polygraph testing is often a useful investigative tool used by private investigation companies. The process helps save time and money for the client and, though the test results are not allowed in many courts of law, the testing does provide good information and often the untruthful subject will admit the truth when faced with the test results.

Process Service

-

We have effectively served hundreds of summonses and subpoenas. The sheriff’s department is not always the best choice because the subject may be avoiding service. When a sheriff’s deputy arrives in a police car and uniform, the subject may start hiding from anyone with papers in their hands. The Jacobs Group always assumes that the subject is avoiding service. If the subject is literally hiding and avoiding service, that is when The Jacobs Group can get its skip-tracing team involved to pinpoint the whereabouts of the subject.

Email Tracing

-

If you have a suspicious email address and would like to know who is on the other end, we can get you a name and physical address.
