Avoid Using Public WiFi

Public WiFi is incredibly easy to hack, and if your information (such as banking information) is stored on your smartphone or laptop, thieves can access it while you’re using WiFi. This is a vital way to protect yourself online, and should be considered at all times, even when you’re not out on the road! You...

Did you know that a burglary happens every 26 seconds? Burglars are most attracted to homes without a security system. In fact, homes with no security measures are three times more likely to be broken into than those who have taken measures to protect themselves.

For most people, a cookie-cutter residential security system is the extent of their security measures. While that’s a great start (and more than most!) there are some other cost-effective security measures you can take to protect yourself. Continue reading to learn more, and if you believe there is a larger threat to your security, consider hiring close protection from Reveles Intelligence Group in San Antonio.

Display Warning Signs

We’ve all see bright orange “Private Property” signs around the perimeter of yards, but do they work? The answer is — sometimes! For a petty criminal, this simple deterrent may be enough to make them pass by your house and move onto a neighbor’s. If you have installed a security system, you can put out a...

Be Aware Of Your Environment

The number one tip for self defense is to always be aware of what’s going on around you. That way, if you see any potential danger, you can avoid it or be prepared to defend yourself. Attackers have the element of surprise, and you can take that away from them by being highly aware. More so, try to stick to well-lit areas and stay off your phone if you’re walking outside.

Use Your Voice

Your voice is the most valuable tool you have in self-defense. Shout NO or STOP as loudly as you can. This will draw attention to your situation...

As the owner, operator, or general manager of a company or corporate subsidiary, you know how important maintaining a safe workplace is, especially if you work in a field that conducts research, handles intellectual property, carries large sums of cash on-premise, or operates in some other sensitive field.

Sometimes, basic security measures like I.D. badges, scan cards, and security cameras are enough of a deterrent to meet your needs or regulatory standards, but in some situations, actually on-site security guards — armed or unarmed — are an important part of your corporate security prevention and response plans.

In today’s blog, we’ll be providing some information about close security for executives.

A missing person causes emotional strife, stress, and intense worry about whether your loved one is safe. Sometimes when you are working with police, you can feel that they aren’t doing enough.

Most of the people who hire a private investigator from Reveles Intelligence Group are trying to understand or investigate someone in their lives. The average person does not have the technology, time, or training to conduct high-level surveillance on their subject. When you’re looking for information that you cannot gather on your own, it’s time to contact us.

In today’s blog, we’ll be talking about how a private investigator conducts surveillance. We’ll talk about the types of technology we use to surveil our subjects as well as the limits of our surveillance abilities.

Listening Devices

We are able to record as long as one person in the conversation consents to recording. Which means if you have a friend who is willing to wear a recording device and talk with the subject, we can record that conversation. But they actually have to be part of the conversation, not just leaning in from another table at a restaurant or listening through a bedroom wall....

If you’re in need of protection from assault, kidnapping, stalking, or other dangerous threats, then it’s time to hire a bodyguard.

Our fifteen years of industry experience has taught us that most people believe that a bodyguard is primarily for intimidation, or just a physical barrier against those who wish to do harm. If that were the case, we’d tell you to ask your largest friend to stand beside you in places you don’t feel safe!

Our professionals at Reveles Intelligence Group in San Antonio have a particular set of skills that the average person simply does not possess. The job of a professional, personal bodyguard is complex, and something you should seriously consider if you are constantly afraid for your safety. Contact us today to learn more.

According to to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, at any given moment, there are more than 90,000 people deemed missing in the United States — an overwhelming amount to say the least. The FBI’s National Crime Information Center also says that over 800,000 people on average are reported missing annually, and of them, the vast majority are minors. While this can be upsetting to hear for anyone, it is truly the family and friends of the missing who experience the most palpable feelings of fear and despair.

For family and friends of those who are missing, working with law enforcement to perform a missing person's investigation is often a double-edged sword. Yes, law enforcement has the experience and knowledge to conduct an investigation, but they are often limited to what they are capable of or permitted to do. Department budget constraints and resources are often a big deterrent to conducting thorough missing persons investigations.

Police do their best with the...

Movies, television shows, and the media as a whole can certainly influence the way we perceive certain things — often without us even knowing it. The way many people view the profession of private security is certainly no exception to this, which is why here at Reveles Intelligence, our team of Top Rated Local® San Antonio security providers want to provide some clarity on what our security services actually entail.

When many people think about security guards, their minds likely go in one of two directions: either the stereotype of the incompetent “mall cop,” or the portrayal of the super slick spy security that takes on an entire circle of criminals or walks away from explosions without the slightest flinch.

Another common perspective is that security guards are only hired for bars and clubs to prevent brawls and kick people out that become overly inebriated. The truth is, security guards are hired for protecting a variety of types of premises, from construction sites and corporate offices to private communities, events, and more.
