Counter Surveillance Scotland

Counter surveillance is deployed to detect hostile covert surveillance teams, a physical presence on the ground conducted by men or women. History has shown us that before any well-executed attack from terrorists to activists’ surveillance would have been conducted at some point in the planning phase and Video Surveillance, covert camera systems that are now on the market are easily obtained at a very low cost. 

These extremely small gadgets can be placed virtually anywhere without it ever being known to the subject and can even be viewed remotely in real-time via desktop or mobile phone. Listening devices are also available on the market at very low prices which can be placed in a location and be set to voice activation, when it is triggered the device will call the stored number providing the surveillance team real-time conversations.


Our security professionals and experienced SIA licensed counter surveillance officers in Scotland are specially selected from a rigorous selection process, we have a high number of ex British military and government agency personnel within the company who bring their individual experiences from working in some of the most challenging environments around the world.


Whatever your background, from CEO’s, executives, celebrities, ultra-high net worth individuals, divorcees and even criminals can benefit from counter-surveillance operations. When our counter surveillance operatives identify a threat during the operation, we can carry out further investigations to identify the persons involved. We can determine the most cost-effective response with you or your team. Once we establish the response, we can then execute the plan, simply by visiting the source of the threat or local authority intervention in Scotland.

Counter surveillance is different from surveillance, as the latter does not aim to prevent or reduce surveillance. Counter surveillance is a series of drills that will be conducted by a third-party team while Anti surveillance is a series of drills that can be conducted by yourself to deter or identify any surveillance team if carried out correctly. After an extensive risk analysis, we will deliver a bespoke protection service, tailored to the unique needs of our clients in Scotland.


Dion International counter-surveillance teams in Scotland employ a set of actions that, when followed correctly, reduce the risk of surveillance, and help to identify any hostile surveillance teams. Counter surveillance refers to measures that are usually undertaken to prevent surveillance, including covert surveillance. 

Counter surveillance may include electronic methods such as technical surveillance countermeasures, which is the process of detecting surveillance devices. It can also include covert listening devices, visual surveillance devices, and counter-surveillance software to thwart unwanted cyber-crime, such as accessing computing and mobile devices for various nefarious reasons, this includes theft of financial, personal, or corporate data.

Operations cover localities, such as Edinburgh, Dumfries, Glasgow, North Berwick, Fife, Perth, Dundee, Oban, Aberdeen, The Borders and Inverness.


The exact cost of a professional counter surveillance team throughout Scotland is reliant on a number of factors. However, as an indication, the typical cost of a counter surveillance team in Scotland starts at around £150.00 per hour for three operatives.
