Covert surveillance is an investigative technique of discreetly obtaining information on a person under investigation. This is the most popular technique used by investigators in order to learn and obtain information about the subject under investigation.
The surveillance process requires a preliminary, comprehensive investigation on the subject which includes the nature of the subject's activities, means of transportation, place of work, work hours, known addresses, preliminary "spot check" of residence, known family and friends information, telephone numbers and of course a current photograph.
A surveillance team manager will analyze all the information obtained from the preliminary investigation and build an investigative plan of action, including the number of surveillance investigators needed, which hours to perform surveillance, what technological tools are needed, etc… All this is done in order to provide the most efficient surveillance investigation for the client.
All activity observed during the surveillance investigation will be documented and obtained by the use of still cameras, hidden camera, hidden cameras, long range cameras and night vision cameras when needed. Subsequent to the surveillance, a Surveillance Manager will present a detailed written investigative report to the client along with the photographic evidence.
