The Best Detective Tool You can Ever Use

Someone asked  me a question about the best detective gizmos and tools out there.  I thought for a second and told him he was.  He looked at me with a puzzled look.  The explanation is simple.  There are tons of great detective tools out there, but in reality, the detective is the most important tool.  You are only limited by your own imagination as to how to use what you already have.

If you have a cell phone, a voice recorder, and a camera you have all the basic investigative tools you need.  Sure it is nice to have that super-stealth hidden camera - but if you do not know when and where to put it - then it doesn't matter.  I remember working undercover or directing undercover operations and we had a very limited amount of tools.  We would have to borrow a "wire" from other agencies to use.  Now - for about a 10th of the price anyone can buy a good wireless mic and even camera system.

My point is that you can use almost any technology - even an old cassette recorder to conduct investigations.  Just think of what you need to find out and from whom and you are most of the way there.  I cannot emphasiz this enough with spy equipment - try it, test it and practice with it before you put it where you need it.  You will learn a lot about where it can and cannot work.

Remember - whatever you do - be safe
