Covert Investigations Surveillance Technologies


Covert Investigations & Surveillance Technologies are excellent methods of acquiring information; however they require sound techniques and the use of experienced, trained investigators and sate-of-the-art technology. They are closely related because in each instance, the investigator banishes his or her official standing to an obscure identity in order to accomplish the mission. In undercover operations, the investigator may assume an entirely different identity, often requiring extensive preparations. Because of the total involvement, and in some cases, danger to the investigator, surveillance & undercover operations are used when necessary as the best way or, as in many instances, the only way of achieving the desired results.
Undercover operations and surveillance are both employed in a variety of ways and require special skills and qualifications. There are several required skills that the surveillant must be trained in prior to going undercover: Observation and Description, Selection and Utilization of Informants, Techniques of Undercover and Surveillance Activities, Foot and Vehicular Surveillance Techniques, Airborne and Marine Surveillance, Visual Surveillance, Computer Surveillance, Electronic Surveillance, Technical Equipment, and Surveillance Log.
Surveillance can be also categorized according to function. There is, for example, intelligence-seeking surveillance where the investigator attempts to learn everything he or she can about a potential crime or an activity that takes place within any type of industrial environments.
