What is Surveillance Detection? The techniques employed by the Protection Team to deter, prevent or stop surveillance on the Principal or Detail Members. It is the systematic observation by covert or overt means of person or location by visual, photographic or technical means. We all know before we conduct an Operation of any type we conduct a Reconnaissance before any operation, which sometimes will require us to do Surveillance.
Surveillance detection (SD) is the attempt to covertly determine if hostile surveillance is being conducted, and if so, to collect general information on the hostile surveillance entity (time, location, appearance, actions, and correlation to the target).
Any operational plan requires a gathering of intelligence on any targets, to be effective. The individual / Team gathers this intelligence by using surveillance over a period of time, which is done before conducting an Operation.
Behind every effective and efficient security program lies a good information and management system. This is where our Surveillance and Detection team comes in. Their basic function is to collect and analyze information as well as expand the system to support our Security Officers in performing their duties. They worked together with the client in developing an active security network.
In addition, the team is able to perform surveillance and detection duties in cases where white collar crime is involved — such as embezzlement, money laundering and insider trading. They are also ready to help clients who want to do background check on certain companies or people.
