Why use us in Alabama?

Alabama has been a licensed State since April of 2014. (See Alabama Investigators License Requirements) License Investigators in Alabama are required to clear a federal background check, pass an exam and acquire a minimum of 16 hours of continuing education every two years.

Casteel and Associates uses only trained professionals with credible backgrounds and extensive training some of our investigators have in excess of 20 years in the field. When I speak of experience I am referring to actual surveillance experience.

We have direct access to criminal and civil records as well as Current Alabama Motor Vehicle information. Why does that matter? Because our preliminary research will help to assure that we know where we are going and what the subject or claimant drives before we leave the office. 

We use HD video equipment that is right for the job at hand. Each of our investigators is equipped with at least three different types of cameras at all times. We have an inventory of specialized cover cameras that surpasses that of most companies in the southeast.

What to expect when you trust your case to Casteel & Associates:

1. A confirmation email verifying receipt of the assignment.

2. Within 24 hours, an email pertaining to our preliminary research findings (done at no charge) and a proposed plan of surveillance action that's in line with your authorized limits.


3. Once proposal is accepted via return email, Surveillance is scheduled and subsequently conducted.

4. Client receives an email summary of surveillance results, a detailed chronographic report in a word document format. Printable still frames taken from the surveillance video and the video delivered via Dropbox or mailed on a DVD, Memory stick or SD card depending on client’s preference. This is done within 72 hours of the completion of surveillance.
