If you are looking into the possibility of retaining a Fullerton Private Investigator, then you’ve come to the right place. Western Investigations was founded by Patrick Schneemann in 1996. Mr. Schneemann has been a private investigator in Fullerton, Ca. for nearly 20 years. Western Investigations is a detective agency that specializes in the following investigative services:

  • Surveillance
  • Infidelity Investigations
  • Child Custody Investigations
  • Co-Habitation Verification
  • Workers’ Compensation Fraud Investigations
  • Background Checks
  • Locating Missing Persons


We have been conducting surveillance in Fullerton, Ca. and throughout Orange County for the more than 20 years. Surveillance is our primary area of expertise. We have found that most private detective agencies claim to offer surveillance, but very few really know how to do it correctly. We have spent literally thousands of hours conducting surveillance in and around Fullerton, Ca. We are familiar with cities downtown area, bars and night clubs as well as the residential areas. We know how to obtain video and photographic evidence.

Infidelity Investigations

When it comes to cheating spouse or infidelity investigations, we offer a 2 fold strategy of traditional surveillance involving a field investigator and GPS tracking on the subject’s vehicle. The ability to track the subject’s vehicle 24/7 can assist our field investigator during the surveillance and also save the client money by reducing the number hours needed to work the case.

Child Custody Investigations

We understand how sensitive these types of investigations are to those involved. We may be private investigators, but we also parents and we have children that we worry about too. The founder of Western Investigations, Patrick R. Schneemann, is a father of 7. We take Child Custody Investigations extremely seriously because we know what it’s like to worry about a child. Our service is tailored to fit the specific needs of the case. We are aggressive and creative during the investigation and we do everything in our power to obtain evidence that will be helpful to our clients cause.

Co-Habitation Investigations

Documenting where someone resides is a common task of private investigation firms. There are numerous legal and personal reasons why someone may want to prove that an individual resides at a specific residence. Co-Habitation (proving that two people live together) investigations are often needed in family law investigations in order to reduce spousal support and address child custody issues. We use a strategy of surveillance broken up into brief increments, trash pickups and neighborhood level discrete interviews to prove that two people reside together. Over the years, our office has obtained irrefutable proof of co-habitation that caused parties to admit it based on our evidence.

Workers’ Compensation Investigations

Workers’ Compensation Fraud costs Californians literally millions of dollars in the form of benefits as well as increased premiums. Patrick R. Schneemann started out in the private investigation industry as a workers’ compensation investigator. Our office has conducted literally thousands of investigations into alleged injured workers. We understand the laws governing workers’ compensation investigations and our staff investigators have testified at the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board in behalf of Insurance Companies, Third Party Administrators and also directly for employers. More and more, employers are bypassing their workers’ compensation carriers and contacting our office directly to have their employees followed or to have us conduct an AOE/COE or Subrogation Investigation.

Background Investigations

Background Investigations are conducted for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you’re an employer and you want to make sure that one of your perspective employees IS who they say they are. Or, maybe your elderly father just began dating a women far younger than he is and you are concerned about her true motives. Or, maybe you need to know a little more about someone you are considering going into a business venture with. Our office handles literally hundreds of background checks every year. We offer our clients a thorough examination into the subjects public records background and we are able to display our results in an easy to understand, professional report.
