WE MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO GET THE PERFECT STORY
We work with freelance journalists, but also directly with production- and media companies, where we offer a variety of services. Our goal is to provide resources where needed, to enable the coverage of stories that might otherwise go uncovered. We can work on a project together with a journalist or company already from the start, or we can be brought in at a later stage to help complete a project.
We work using unique information retrieval- and surveillance methods, and we also offer personal protection for journalists who cover high-risk areas or work in conflict environments, such as warzones and unsafe crime-infested locations.
If the piece worked on requires the participation of one- or more individuals (such as witnesses), we can assist by locating these people to schedule an interview. For this, we use a variety of physical and digital surveillance methods, where we run background checks, track IP addresses and more. We can also help with several other services related to information gathering, personal protection, and surveillance.
For those of you who work in the field of reviewing and digging journalism, we can help you find the last piece of the puzzle and complete cases and investigations where you yourself are stuck. With a large global network, we have great opportunities to access information that would otherwise be very difficult to access.
We can also assist investigative journalists with specific intelligence gatherings, such as obtaining receipts, invoices, and emails, and we can conduct physical tracking, as well as tracking IP addresses and digital monitoring. We also carry out various forms of surveys where we examine, for example, call lists and travel patterns to get information about which individuals have been in contact with each other and if there are other important circumstances to highlight in this context.
WE OFFER PERSONAL PROTECTION FOR HIGH-RISK PROFESSIONS
We understand that, as a journalist, you will sometimes end up in the crossfire, and in unsafe situations. This is why we also offer personal protection for independent journalists. We work to protect your privacy, we assist with protection against any type of copyright infringement, and we investigate cases of stalking, threats and more. Contact us and let us know what you and your unique situation require, and we will present you with a solution.
It should never be considered normal or acceptable for a journalist to be threatened or intimidated, and this is why we work fast to identify the source of a received threat so that this can be handed over to the authorities for further investigation.
We can also help with safety measures for journalists that travel abroad, to countries or areas where their personal safety cannot be guaranteed. Our team of safety and security experts works alongside journalists to make their profession safer, and we have access to advanced tracking equipment so that someone will always know the exact position of the working journalist, and especially when traveling. This is also useful for the journalist’s equipment, as it can be easily tracked if lost or stolen. We also have software that can be installed in cell phones, to allow for incoming and outgoing calls to be monitored and listened to – all with the purpose of keeping the investigating journalist safe.
We work together with production companies to help them put together compelling documentaries and TV programs. Production companies reach out to us for help with things like information gathering, IP address searches, physical tracking, and surveillance, and this is often with the intention of using the material we find for planned production. We also help track down people, such as stalkers and other individuals of interest.
We collaborate with journalists, media companies and TV productions, where we carry out surveillance and documentation both in Sweden and abroad. This means that we can partner with an individual, a company or an organization, and take over responsibility for gathering information, which can then be used for a person’s work or in a media production.
It may be crucial to locate an individual for an interview when preparing a newspaper article or a documentary, and many journalists struggle with this. The lack of resources makes it hard to find someone who might not want to be found, and especially if this person has left the country and moved abroad. We are often contacted by journalists and media production outlets for help with locating missing persons, and our skilled staff then goes on to establish contact with the person in question, and they hand over all material and contact information to the journalists.
All our staff members and anyone who works with or for us is bound to a strict confidentiality agreement. We will provide you with detailed information regarding our confidentiality policies when a collaboration begins, but you can rest assured that we take confidentiality very seriously and that it will always be honored and respected no matter the situations that may arise as a result of our work. If the person we are asked to locate is wanted by the police – we do not reveal the individual’s whereabouts or position to anyone but the client (you). We are very discreet and professional in the way that we work.
