Counter-Surveillance Sweeps for Bugs, Listening

What Are Bugs, Listening/Audio Devices, and Video Camera Recording Devices ?

Bugs, listening/audio devices, and video camera recording devices are all forms of surveillance equipment that people try to use to collect information and other data about another individual. Private persons, and businesses using these forms of surveillance often discreetly purchase these devices online or at a private investigator/security store in Oklahoma, while governmental agencies either make their own bugs, listening/audio devices, and video camera recording devices or have their own contract-based suppliers.

As noted above, private individuals, businesses, and governmental agencies all use surveillance methods that involve bugs, listening/audio devices, and video camera surveillance for the same reasons: They want to know a person or persons is/are doing and saying. Most of the time, governmental agencies have the legal authority to perform this type of surveillance, while private individuals might do so to protect their homes and businesses, for personal safety, or for illegal or illicit surveillance reasons.

Why Do Some People Secretly Install Bugs, Listening/Audio Devices, and Video Camera Recording Devices Into the Vehicles, Homes, and Offices of Other Individuals and Businesses?

Governmental agencies most often use surveillance measures such as bugs, listening/audio devices, and video camera recording devices to fight crime. From the NSA to the FBI, the ATF, the CIA, and local police departments, these governmental officials most often have a legitimate legal interest in finding out what people are saying and doing. Indeed, courts must give approval for things like wiretapping.

Private individuals often have their own reasons for conducting surveillance. Some of the legitimate/legal reasons a private person or company might utilize bugs, listening/audio devices, and video camera recording devices are as follow:

  • Individuals and Companies Want to Protect Their Homes, Vehicles, and Businesses Against Theft, Burglary, Robbery, Assault and Battery, Sexual Assault, Etc. – Essentially, Crime Prevention Techniques.
  •  A Person or Company Wants to Monitor the Activity of Their Employees.
  •  Parents Wish to Monitor the Crib/Bedding Area of Their Newborn Baby.
  •  Individuals Want to Record Extra Special Moments, Such as Sports Games, Graduations, Martial Arts Matches, Etc., of Their Loved Ones

Under Oklahoma’s laws, no person, whether a private individual or an Oklahoma City private investigator from a reputable Oklahoma private detective agency, may place any tracking devices on any vehicle or equipment that that private person or Oklahoma private investigator does not directly own. Thus, a  private detective in Warr Acres, Oklahoma from a private investigation agency in Bethany, Oklahoma may place a tracking device on a vehicle or other piece of equipment at the request and approval of her/his/their client, provide the client owns it or at least co-owns it. However, if an Oklahoma private investigations client asks one of our private investigators in Edmond, OK from our Edmond, OK private investigation agency to place a tracking device on the vehicle or phone of an ex-spouse, Oklahoma’s laws prohibit it and our private investigator in Oklahoma at our private investigation agency in Oklahoma is prohibited from doing it.

Likewise, private investigators may not record, whether through audio recordings, video recordings/video cameras, or both any individuals who are in a secluded location and which did not give prior permission. Thus, any public space, such as a mall location or a public swimming pool, does not grant a person with an expectation of privacy unless the owners of the facilities object to such video and audio recordings. However, under Oklahoma law, a private investigator in Edmond at a private investigation agency in Edmond may not conduct audio or video recordings as part of Oklahoma private investigations in private locations such as bathrooms, someone else’s private home or office, locker rooms, or other such isolated areas. While it is indeed true that property owners may record the activities and conversations of others who are on their own properties, such rights still do not extend to shower facilities, locker rooms, bathrooms, etc.

One other important facet of Oklahoma’s privacy laws that both private investigators in Oklahoma City, OK from private detective agencies in Oklahoma and private citizens alike should remain aware of is how no one in Oklahoma may record the private conversations of another person or other individuals to whom she/he/they is/are not a party. However, provided the individual or persons who is/are secretly recording the conversation(s) is/are a party to it, whether it is over the phone or in-person in the State of Oklahoma, then secretly recording the conversation is perfectly legal. Likewise, under Oklahoma law it is not illegal to record the conversations of other individuals in public places, where no reasonable expectation of privacy exists.
