Surveillance


Surveillance is the careful and continuous watching or listening of people, places, vehicles or objects, to gather information that can be later used as evidence in criminal and/or civil proceedings - Surveillance can be:

• Overt - a CCTV system fitted in a retail store, an airport or railway station
• Covert - where an operator imposing surveillance on a person, vehicle or a place of interest remains hidden from view.
• Technical - the use of GPS trackers, listening devices/bugs and covert CCTV is used collectively or individually.

Surveillance is widely used by our private clients to obtain irrefutable evidence. We use it for many investigations that include but are not limited to:

Infidelity - Cheating spouse/partner.
Child Custody.
Child Maintenance.
Cohabiting.
Neighbour Disputes.
Anti-Stalking and Harassment.
Subletting and House of Multiple Occupancy.
Fly Tipping.
• Much more.

Is Surveillance Legal?

Yes: All of our surveillance is conducted within strict legislative guidelines, specifically:

• The Regulation of Investigative Powers Act (RIPA) 2000: If you are a public body instructing us.
• The Data Protection Act 2018
• The General Data Protection Principles (GDPR) 2018
• The Human Rights Act 1998
• The Protection from Harassment Act 1997

How can we help?

We understand that talking to an investigator can be an uncomfortable experience. Sharing your suspicions about your spouse or partners infidelity is very difficult. We are experts at listening respectfully, and we will guide you through the process.

Be assured, our primary aim is to put you at your ease and we are committed to speaking to you in a sensitive and sympathetic manner.

Surveillance work is bound by strict legislation and it is paramount that we complete the work in a way that does not jeopardise any civil or criminal proceedings that may arise from our investigations.

In addition to the salient points, it is highly likely that we will ask you for the following information:

• Names and addresses of the subject and any other relevant third parties
• Recent photograph - this is helpful but not essential
• Vehicle details
• Daily routine
• Place of work and job title

What happens Next?

Once we have discussed the case with you, and gathered all of the necessary information, we will develop an investigation plan and present you with a cost effective strategy that we feel is best suited to your circumstances.

Each case brings its own set of challenges and we will identify and plan for those from the outset. We will look options including, but not limited to:

• The number of operators required.
• Female operators - if specifically requested.
• GPS Vehicle Tracking.
• Other technical surveillance and specialist equipment.

It is highly likely that we will use a GPS tracking device in the first instance, which allows us to gather intelligence and build a pattern of movement of the subject.

We use the most-up-to-date technologies available, alongside highly trained operators using a combination of cars, vans and motorcycles to impose effective covert surveillance on the subject.

Once the investigation is complete, you will receive a detailed investigation report, complete with surveillance logs and irrefutable date- and time-stamped photographic and/or video evidence that is admissible in court. We can also attend court if required.

The irrefutable evidence that we provide, will corroborate, or not, your suspicions, providing you with detailed information about the subjects activities, movements, whereabouts and behaviours, including who they meet, where they meet, what they are doing, how long they're there for and any other pertinent information that is relevant.

All of our investigations are conducted by professional, highly skilled investigators who work within the parameters of the law and to strict codes of conduct. Rest assured, you are in safe hands.
