In response to the frequently asked questions regarding our undercover sting operations and television project:

• Will I work alone? No. If you are assigned to this case, you will be working with a minimum of two investigators at all times (usually one female and one male).

• Will I ever be left alone with the investigative subject? No. Our investigators will either be with you or very close to you in whatever venue within which we are operating.

• Is this job dangerous? For the most part, no. Safety is our utmost concern on any sting operation and all efforts to protect our investigators and decoys are taken. Dangerous undercover assignments are generally staffed by our in-house personnel.

• What type of undercover stings do you perform? A majority are related to infidelity and/or custody situations, others involve internal theft or drug cases for businesses or corporations, and a few involve criminal activity that may result in the arrest of the suspect. Our undercover stings can get very complex, requiring intricate planning and execution.

• Will I be on television? If the undercover sting to which you are assigned is selected by the television project production team, you may be on television. If this is the case, you will be provided with legal network waivers.

• Is this a full-time or part-time position? All undercover decoy assignments are on an as-needed basis.

• How do you select an undercover decoy for an assignment? First, we need to identify what behavior the Subject is suspected to exhibit. Once this is established, we then select an undercover decoy possessing the characteristics most likely to draw the suspected behavior out of the Suspect. The work/life experience and physical characteristics of the decoy applicant are determining factors in selecting the proper person.

• Do I need acting experience to become an undercover decoy? While acting experience is a plus, it is not necessary. Some of the best undercover decoys we have utilized had no prior acting experience.
