Private investigators and other law enforcement teams utilize a host of equipment to do their jobs, including utilizing covert and other digital recording devices. Having equipment that is reliable and designed to do the job right the first time is a must for any member of a law enforcement team. The James Bond enthusiast might be more fascinated by the covert equipment, but capturing testimony with the right equipment is what is most important for the nonfictional investigator.
Backpacks, sunglasses, buttons and baseball caps, what do these items all have in common? They are just some of the things that body worn cameras are concealed in. Even cell phones, pagers, day planners, watches and pens can contain the new types of miniaturized surveillance cameras available for covert use. There is even a blue denim jacket with a concealed camera that is used by police departments and television stations.
