Appleby & Associates also conducts activity checks. This service is a limited surveillance to include the location and verification of the Claimant’s current residence, vehicle verification at the residence, as well as, a determination as to whether the location is suitable for surveillance and develop information through canvass of the neighborhood to warrant surveillance.
Activity checks are for those surveillance investigations where a budget for a full day of surveillance is not warranted without further assessment of the feasibility of success on a regular surveillance assignment. If there is uncertainty the Claimant provided the current address, or the residence is in a rural area, gated community or there is not the opportunity for direct surveillance and the neighborhood has multiple egress routes. Activity checks can also assist in pinpointing opportune times for surveillance when the Claimant could be most active. Moreover, activity checks are primarily used as a tool to warrant or even discount further surveillance investigation. Prior activity checks usually provide the best possible results for surveillance operations.
