And the Mayor of New York City would like his police officers to approach groups of people and tell them they are breaking the law by not "socially distancing" themselves.

Fulop Shea Wednesday December 11 Fox News Interview - cowaninvestigations.com

On Wednesday morning December 11, Mayor Fulop after having been rebuked by the New Jersey Attorney General for his outlandish comments and his politicization of the previous days homicides brings Public Safety Director Jim Shea to clean up his mess. 

As Fulop stands by silently, Shea tells Fox News "I didn't use the words Anti-Semetic, the motives are still part of the investigation. I said this location, they exited the van and proceeded to attack this location in a targeted manner anything else is open for investigation".

Shea is the master of double speak, hopefully Fulop and his Civilian Public Safety Director leave this investigation and comments regarding the the investigation to law enforcement officials.

Jim Shea & Fulop Administration Civilianization of The JCPD - cowaninvestigations.com

In this video the civilian assistant to Jersey Public Safety Director Jim Shea, assigned by the director as the off duty detail coordinater, can be seen as he goes out on patrol to monitor all construction details that the Fulop Administration has turned over to flagmen, Hudson County Sheriff's Office and the New Jersey State Police. Shea was heard saying to one of his high ranking police lackies that permitting his off duty assistant to use a marked JCPD Vehicle enabled the coordinator to get around rush hour traffic more easily, Shea intimated to the lackie it only took a half day training to teach the coordinator to use the lights and siren.

Steve Fulop, can't you send Jim back to NYC, maybe you can get Dermot to come take his place, even if there is an upcharge it may be well worth it

Private Investigator NJ, Hire Local (1) Cowan Investigations - https://cowaninvestigations.com/hire-local/

Many people seeking a Licensed New Jersey Private Investigator simply initiate a Google Search. Immediately the computer screen is inundated with links to National big-name Private Detective Firms. During your review of the information on these flashy websites, the National Private Detective Agencies will sell their service to you by representing they have hundreds of Private Investigators spread throughout the United States. I don’t doubt that fact, but how well can these Private Detective Firms actually service you? Do you really believe that these national investigation companies have a rapport with hundreds of Private Investigators spread out over fifty states? How well do you think these large out of state companies know the geography of New Jersey let alone the applicable laws both criminal and civil? These nationally based Private Detective Firms intake large amounts of work through highly efficient, attractive and effective advertising packaging. Upon obtaining a client in New Jersey these national companies outsource the assignment to a New Jersey Private Investigator and retain up to 65% of all charges as their “management” fee for handling the case and its outsourcing. Quite frankly, In most instances the investigator assigned to your case willing to let 65% of an hourly rate be skimmed off the top is a substandard investigator and could care about your case and it’s results.

Private Investigator NJ Surveillance Planning, Cowan Investigations - https://cowaninvestigations.com/surveillance/

Prior to Google Mapping and other advancements in technology, in order  for a New Jersey Private Investigator to do the job properly the Private Investigator would be remiss if the investigator did not go out into the field in order to establish the surveillance site and alternate positions prior to initiating the surveillance. 

However, it is now possible for the Private Investigator to create an accurate surveillance plan prior to commencing the covert operation by using accurate mapping provided on the internet. This technology allows the Investigator to locate a suitable area in order to set up the surveillance locate alternate surveillance locations, look for potential problems and scout ahead for likely entrances and exits to the area. 

With all of that being said, nothing ever looks the exactly the same on a mapping system as it does when you physically arrive, and very often your plan will need adjustments. However, the proper preparation of utilizing an available mapping system will be most beneficial to all investigations.

Cowan investigations, Vehicular Surveillance, Private investigator  NJ - https://cowaninvestigations.com/surveillance/

Surveillance is an art and a significant part of many investigations. Particularly complicated is when it becomes necessary for the Private Investigator to follow the subject in a vehicle.  Whether it be day or night, each comes with its own pitfalls; one thing is clear, on television it looks a whole lot easier than it really is. During the day it is much easier to blend in with other traffic, however, it is also much more likely to have this same traffic obstruct your surveillance at critical moments. 

At night under the cover of darkness in light traffic an investigator is much less noticeable, in most instances can stay close enough to keep up with the subject. However, the real problem at night occurs when you are on either very rural roads and/or other roads that are devoid of traffic, in other words, just your vehicle and the other vehicle. 

There are several ways to account for these drawbacks; first and foremost is the gathering of as much information and intelligence as possible regarding the subject of the investigation, another method of providing for successful mobile surveillances is through the use of a two-person surveillance team. Whatever the method to be used, it
will be thoroughly discussed with the client prior to the commencement of the investigation.

    I didn't personally have the pleasure of meeting Mr. Cowan but Liz was so incredibly efficient and professional!! Within hrs she had already gotten answers to a question that has tormented me for a long time.
    If you need ANY investigative
    … More work done trust Cowan. This was my 1st time dealing with an investigative service and I was best pleased!! 5 stars all the way! A special thank you to Liz. You're a dear and I will always remember your warmth, sympathy and professionalism. Always.

    Best of the Best!
    Worked with Bob during his tenure as the former Chief of the Jersey City Police Department. All I can say is that you will be getting what you pay for with this results driven company.
    A leader within the industry with
    … More over 34+ years in law enforcement as well as a proven track record of accomplishments in the field. If I needed a private investigator, Cowan Investigations would be my first choice, hands down.
  • Avatar Jay White ★★★★★ 7 months ago
    As a retired Deputy Police Chief with the Jersey City Police Department I had the privilege of working with Bob Cowan for over 25 years.
    Bob is an honest and ethical professional who shows empathy towards people in unfortunate situations.
    … More
    Bob’s objective analysis and evaluation of an issue enables him to address the true problem at hand.
    His strong analytical abilities coupled with thorough research and attention to detail make him an ideal private investigator.
    I know his clients will receive a comprehensive detailed report that will stand up in any hearing or court of law.
    Bob is a high caliber dedicated professional who will give it his all to address the issues at hand and achieve results.
  • Avatar Rae ★★★★★ 10 months ago
    I would highly recommend Cowan Investigations. From the time you speak to Liz on the phone until the time Bob is finished with the investigation you will always know what is going on, what is taking place, and what they found. You will … More be provided with detailed information and surveillance. Bob is very well trained in this field and will provide you with outstanding work. Both Bob and Liz are very compassionate and caring people and make you feel comfortable through the whole process. At the end of the investigation you’ll know that you have hired the right people for the job.
  • Avatar Sarah V ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    I have been married for over 25 years, 2 years ago things just started not feeling right, I started having suspicions that my husband was cheating. I felt trapped, I was embarrassed to talk about it with anyone. I put up with feeling … More this way for two years.
    I began researching private investigators because I was fed up with being lied to and deceived, talked to like I was crazy. I called a few investigators but I did not feel comfortable, I felt like I was talking to used car salesmen. Just before I was going to give up I called Cowan Investigations. From the minute I began speaking to Liz Cowan I began to feel comfortable, she was very genuine, caring and knowledgeable on how to proceed. Liz set up a call with Bob who I immediately could tell was very experienced and knew how to proceed.
    Over a 4 day period Bob and Joe uncovered the evidence I needed to confront the lies and other deceptions I was subjected to, which let me make the decisions I needed to make for myself. Above all I was able to regain my self respect by getting the proof I needed.
    From time Liz answered the phone until Bob and Joe finished the investigation, I was overwhelmed by the professionalism and caring they displayed towards me and the investigation.
    Thanks again Liz, Bob and Joe, you’re the best
  • Avatar Fidel Hernandez ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    If there was a way to give this Gentleman ten stars, I would. Don't be mistaken by the use of the word "gentleman" he is a hound and he zeros in on the minutia of the investigation. He is a real detective with a extensive … More background in law enforcement.
    I thought that I had a really good understanding of my case and then I hired Bob Cowan. He exposed so many things that were hidden in plain sight that it blew my mind and consequently gave me much needed peace of mind.
    From the time he took my case, he kept in constant contact with me. All throughout, he explained things in way that I could understand. He was reassuring, professional and the best guy for the job!
    I am in the unenviable position of knowing what I am saying. It can and is, at times, overwhelming when you have to hire a private investigator. This usually arises from a traumatic experience and the reason why you should surround yourself with someone who knows what this experience fells like.
    I trust Bob Cowan and hope he continues to help others, like he helped me. I am grateful to have been referred to him! Thank you, Sir.
    And yes, I would be remiss if I didn't thank his wife Liz. She took my initial phone call and she knew I needed his help. She was warm and kind. Just what you need when you are faced with these situations...Thank you, Liz.
  • Avatar Susie K ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    I recently had the need to use a private investigator. After looking at several options, I decided to call Cowan Investigations. The decision to call them turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever made. I really like the fact that … More Mr. Cowan has a law enforcement background and is a former Chief of Police for Jersey City. After my first conversation with Liz Cowan I knew I had called the right people. She made me feel very comfortable when I answered all the questions she needed to get the facts regarding a very complicated situation. Liz is very thorough, caring, and very professional and usually available when I had questions. Liz and Bob make you, their priority. I NEVER had to worry if Mr. Cowan would be working on my case at the time I was promised. He was always at the location, on time, very descrete and went way above and beyond my expectations. I was informed of the progress on a daily basis and over a period of 4-5 days, had enough evidence to prove my case. The reports are very professionally written with dates and time stamped. It says a lot when my lawyer called Bob Cowan and complimented him on the great report he gave to my lawyer, to take to court. I feel the evidence gathered by Cowan Investigations and presented to the judge, by my lawyer, made a huge difference in the judge's decision. I met Mr. Cowan and shook his hand after I won the case. I highly recommend Cowan Investigations and will definitely use them again if needed. Thank you for all your hard work, you are the best!

We cannot thank Bob and Liz enough for helping us with a matter that was probably outside the realm of their normal practice. They were instrumental in assisting us in reaching out to an unscrupulous used car salesman. The individual wouldn't return our calls and obviously, did not wish to be found.Due to their tireless efforts and many phone calls, we were finally put in touch with him. With their help, the situation was fully resolved! They handled the situation with the utmost care and professionalism. We strongly recommend Cowan Investigations as they are very good at what they do!
