Is It Legal To Use GPS Trackers?

Certified, licensed and insured private investigators use numerous pieces of equipment to assist them in performing subtle surveillance on a difficult or evasive subject. “Is that legal?” remains one of the most commonly asked questions from both lawyers and clients across Los Angeles. The answer depends on a variety of factors.

The Answer: In Most infidelity Cases, Yes!

While the legality of using GPS trackers for surveillance varies based on the nature of the case, the individual in question and a variety of additional factors, in the majority of infidelity surveillance cases, Paramount Investigative Services undertakes, we’re capable of legally using GPS tracking devices to assist in our investigation.

However, if you’re not a private investigator in Los Angeles, we don’t recommend going out and buying your own tracking device! Our training, insurance and in-depth knowledge of local laws ensures that we don’t run into legal issues. Additionally, an inexperienced individual could risk compromising a future investigation by scaring the subject into hiding should they discover a poorly-placed tracking device!
