Covert Security Equipment
Equipment has its place within any operation, but it must be deployed correctly to be a useful asset within the investigators/Surveillance Operatives armoury. There is now some great Covert Security Equipment available to buy to anyone.
We have specifically looked into a wide range of devices and suppliers to find effective equipment that can support the operative. We were then asked so many questions about deployment and other issues we decided to create a specific course.
Equipment on the Market
We found the underwater camera with a screen in a compact box an excellent piece of kit for rapid deployment and its plug and go, works perfectly out of the water so can be used for watching trigger points, or monitoring vehicles behind you. It’s actually designed for fishing but we say if it works for our purposes then why not use it – especially if your budget doesn’t extend to professional tech kit.
The Canon DSLR series are fairly robust and well worth the investment, especially when you consider the cost of Lens, and other accessories, however, Nikon and Olympus also have a great range of cameras for those that are prepared to spend the money. The Olympus is also Mirrorless so you can continue shooting without the click of the shutter

Off The Shelf Equipment
We found this little beauty on Amazon, which came with a telephoto lens attachment and infrared night vision illuminator for DSLR cameras, giving us the ability to video short distances in darkness.
Using the camera with the x 12 Telephoto lens needs some practice, but provides a fairly good quality image at long range, and it’s also a cheap addition to your surveillance kit, with this video supporting 24 Mega Pixels Supporting Face Detection its a handy little device but beware if you are using at night, you’ll need to adapt or purchase something a little different.
Used by Military Snipers, Wildlife Hunters, and Paparazzi to help blend them into their surroundings, Ghillie Suits are relatively cheap off the internet, but if you need it quite often then it’s well worth investing in something a lot more robust and adaptable to a wide range of surrounding.
Audio and Tracking Devices
As well as a warning for something to be aware of, these Vape cases can be adapted extremely easily and made as audio devices or fitted with trackers dependent on your requirements. The world has become frightening with the advancement of technology and the shrinking of devices to pinhole sizes. However, operatives must be fully conversant with what’s possible and how to counter any threats these pose to them or others.

some equipment can be adapted as ordinary objects to prevent fly-tipping or anti-social behaviour
It is important to understand both UK Law and any Oversea Laws similar to the Communications Act 2003 which prohibit the use of communication devices as any evidence may well be deemed inadmissible in court, whilst opening you up to a criminal offence.
