Covert Rural surveillance UK Scotland

Crop Surveillance Scotland

Those trained in covert operations are specially trained to blend in and cope with rural landscapes, so no matter what kind of crime is occurring in your area we can protect your land, livestock, machinery and assets. All types of land should be protected, from farmland to open space to city parks and expansive landscapes. Monitoring land and spotting suspicious activity can be challenging in rural areas.

CCTV can be difficult to install in such wide-open spaces, and large-scale preventive measures can be very expensive. Therefore, when your site is under threat, you need to act.  With few discreet spots from where to monitor, it can be hard to effectively guard your land. By placing highly trained, surveillance operatives at covert rural observation posts, we can detect wrongdoing and build concrete evidence.
