Seifer is Radius Investigations’ counter-surveillance and technical surveillance counter-measures (TSCM), or “bug sweeping,” expert. He leads the firm’s operations in searching for, identifying, and neutralizing all forms of covert surveillance which may intrude on our clients’ privacy, including GPS trackers, hidden cameras, and “bugs” or hidden recording devices.
Mr. Seifer is described as strong and a natural born leader, as well as compassionate, dedicated, trustworthy, and diligent with his clients, students, and community. He oversees every case and will follow through until the client has the answers they need to make an educated and informed decision.
Since the inception of Radius Investigations, Seifer has expanded the agency from his Long Island, New York headquarters to New York City and has developed a world-wide network of private investigators. Seifer’s professional expertise has made Radius Investigations not your typical PI agency. We provide a broad spectrum of services including background investigations, TSCM bug sweeps, insurance investigations, as well as unique educational programs on security, safety, and private investigations through their new training division, Guardian Security Training.
