Covert Surveillance Scotland

Covert surveillance is conducted by concealing it from the subject, or by ensuring they are unaware of its presence.  Directed surveillance operations involve the covert monitoring of targets’ movements, conversations and other activities.  Those who perform this work are highly skilled surveillance specialists, who may operate from vehicles, on foot or from fixed observation posts.

The use of covert surveillance has long been the last resort for investigating illegal activities, such as extremist groups, theft, fraud, espionage, or employment issues. However, as organisations look at quicker methods, covert surveillance has been growing in popularity as a way to glean intelligence and information, in what is often referred to as a covert surveillance, in order to uncover the truth.
