In-house Training Courses

Basic Surveillance Methods

This short course is designed as an introduction to surveillance methods and opens with a revision of the legislation governing surveillance and continues with an introduction into the planning of surveillance operations, how to identify observation points, what basic points to consider in relation to operatives, clothing, vehicles and foot surveillance. Also included is a session on how to introduce surveillance as evidence.

The optional second day involves a practical session with the aid of a role-player and involves foot surveillance and demonstrates how to prepare surveillance logs for evidential purposes.
