The Challenges of Conducting Surveillance in Seattle

Each city and metropolitan area has a set of complications that make private investigative work a challenge. Seattle is no different, with a dense population and highly congested traffic.


Here are a few things that make surveillance in Seattle a challenge:

  • Very obstructed sightlines due to proximity of geographic features, large buildings, vehicles and even foot traffic
  • Large downtown area
  • Heavy traffic, busy intersections and closely spaced intersections and many freeway on-ramps
  • Heavy pedestrian traffic, buses, increased use of public transportation
  • Difficult to find parking
  • Frequent inclement weather
  • Increasing levels of construction

Often, several of these factors affect surveillance at the same time. Seattle has been growing rapidly for several years and the growing population means that larger crowds and more construction can be expected. It can also be expected that the larger the crowd is, the more difficult surveillance will become.
