Private Investigation and Process Service for Individuals
Baker Street Investigations will help you design a customized, cost-effective background and employment screening solution.
Applicants will sometimes omit previous addresses to conceal criminal records. A Residency History Search compiles information from various sources, including voting, property records, as well as database information to arrive at a list of names and addresses associated with a specific Social Security Number. The locations of any unreported addresses can be searched for criminal records, providing a more thorough investigation.
County Criminal Records
A County Criminal Records Search reports felony, misdemeanor, and pending charges in specific counties.
Statewide Criminal Records
A Statewide Criminal Records Search includes information from all of the counties within a particular state. Investigating criminal records outside the county of residence is very important as these records may go undetected when a Statewide Criminal Records search is omitted.
However, not all States offer Statewide searches but Baker Street Investigations can access individual county searches to make sure that no criminal record goes undetected.
USA Patriot Act Search
The Nationwide Patriot Act Search provides information on individuals and entities who have been sanctioned by the United States government, whose property may be blocked, and/or with whom no U.S. person may have dealings. This information is maintained by the Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC).
Federal Criminal Records
Federal charges typically encompass severe crimes such as drug violations, the illegal sale of firearms, embezzlement, pornographic exploitation of children, and crimes that take place on federal property. Federal crimes do not appear in statewide or county criminal searches but are available nationally or by state and include pending cases as well as convictions.
Motor Vehicle Records
A Motor Vehicle Records Search offers a detailed description of an individual’s driving history. These searches are essential for individuals who drive company vehicles, rent vehicles in the organization’s name, or drive their personal vehicles while on the job.
A Credit Report summarizes the financial obligations of an individual and catalogs an individual’s income range, debt to income ratio, public records, collections, current negative accounts, previous negative accounts, installment and revolving accounts, as well as address and employment information.
Social Security Verification
A Social Security Verification reveals if a Social Security Number is valid and associated with an applicant’s name. This information is based on searches of public and private databases.
Nationwide Healthcare Fraud & Abuse Scan
A Nationwide Healthcare Fraud & Abuse Scan searches databases maintained by the Office of Inspector General (OIG), the General Services Administration (GSA), and other federal agencies for sanction information. This search meets the government’s minimum requirements for sanction screening as set forth in the OIG’s Compliance Program Guidance. This search also reveals disciplinary actions taken by federal agencies as well as those taken by licensing and certification agencies in all 50 states.
However, not all States offer Statewide searches but Baker Street Investigations can access individual county searches to make sure that no criminal record goes undetected.
Nationwide Database Search
A Nationwide Database Search scans a collection of criminal records purchased from courts, corrections departments, and state agencies. This search is an essential supplemental search as it captures criminal records for applicants in states or counties in which they may have never lived, but have criminal records. The Nationwide Criminal Database Search is comprised of more than 150 million records, including 43 state databases. Each state provides information from at least one of the following: county courts, state corrections, or the state sexual offender list. The database also includes a Foreign Nationals search, providing information on individuals and entities that have been sanctioned by the U.S. Government. The Nationwide Criminal Database Search also includes the Nationwide Sexual Offender Index Search from all 50 states.
Workers’ Compensation Search
A Workers’ Compensation Search reduces the number of claims filed, and their associated expenses, by alerting employers and organizations to chronic abusers. This search is vital to organizations employing or staffing individuals who are involved in active, physical or labor intensive activities. Workers’ compensation records are available in most states.
Photography and videography has become incredibly valuable as means of surveillance. Baker Street Investigation leverages advanced technology to capture events while maintaining a low profile and blending in with the surveillance environment.
Covert surveillance involves a person or persons being unaware that they are being watched. Sometimes normal cameras are used, but the investigator is concealed. Sometimes the camera itself is disguised or concealed. Some obvious element of concealment (or great distance) is generally needed to make such photography fall under the category of ‘secret photography’ rather than street photography or documentary photography.
What kind of surveillance job do you need done? Have you tried tracking your cheating spouse only to discover how difficult it is to stay hidden driving the family SUV? What is happening to the profits you expected to make compared to what your accountant is showing you? How can you be sure you’re not getting taken in by a scam artist if you invest in his new business opportunity?
Contact Baker Street Investigations today and we can be on the job by tomorrow.

The statistics tell the tale: the unfortunate reality is that Cheating/Infidelity is the leading cause of Divorce; in other words in 90% of Divorces the single leading cause was cheating. Another statistic shows that in 80% of divorces there are children involved thus leading to a bigger legal battle and that is a child custody dispute.
Many people who suspect their spouse of cheating lose focus of the bigger picture and that is the child custody issue. Of course it is important to know whether or not your partner is cheating but you cannot jeopardize the child custody investigation. Figuratively speaking you can kill two birds with one stone via determining whether or not your partner is cheating while building a child Custody case.
- Night-time surveillance
- Low light situations
- Surveillance vehicles
- A variety of cameras and other related devices
Child Custody Investigations
Child custody matters are often required to be completed in a time sensitive way so that you, the client, can move forward in your case, with the benefit of knowing the real truth.
This usually requires a skillful combination of surveillance and records checks culminating in court testimony in some cases.
Whether you need clarification for personal reasons or for an ongoing court case, we can address these matters efficiently and with confidentially.
These investigations can help determine the following:
- Supervised visitation requirements are being adhered to
- Activities occurring during child visitation periods are exposing children to risk
- A parent associating with known criminals such as sex offenders
- Domestic violence
- Alcohol, drug abuse neglect
- Verbal, emotional or physical abuse

Infidelity by its very nature is a sensitive issue. Baker Street Investigations takes this very seriously. The emotional and financial investment in relationships often grows over time as people make personal sacrifices, financial decisions and build their lives around each other. Not knowing where you stand and trying to plan your future when the lines of open and honest communication between you and your partner have broken down can be emotionally devastating and have long term financial consequences.
Being Discreet: You may think that your cheating spouse or significant other would never suspect that someone would be watching them! However, cheating can feel risky and exciting and watching over their shoulder is part of what they do. Other times, cheaters are absorbed and completely oblivious to their surroundings.
In the case of the vigilant cheater, it sometimes is necessary to engage more than one operative to get the job done efficiently and in a timely manner. This can increase the cost at first but by obtaining the evidence in a shorter time, it is ultimately less expensive. Surveillances done during rush hour traffic are especially more challenging and require more than one investigator on most difficult assignments.
If you are trying to establish infidelity and prove fault for purposes of gaining an advantage in a divorce action, Baker Street Investigations can assist you with obtaining the information that is necessary for your legal counsel to use in court proceedings.
Although some States have a “No Fault Divorce” law which does not require the evidence of adultery, there are still many States that proof is required. Also, some religious sects have regulations within their belief system where it is mandatory to document adultery. Even in “No Fault” States, proof of adultery can assist in the award of Alimony.
In the State of Florida it is beneficial for custody cases to have a “Judge of Character” of the other parent.
A detaild report is prepared together with video footage and/or photographs which is made available for any testimony that is required in future court appearances by Baker Street Investigations.

Even if the location of the witness is unknown, we will utilize proven private investigation techniques to locate your witness and provide the information to you in a timely manner.

Finding people is an art, not a science.
