Protective Surveillance

This specialist covert process in which a third-party individual, building, area or asset are protected through security methods that are covert, strategic and perceptive can support you discreetly in your security mission. Our personnel will not draw attention or make themselves known to the people during the protection operation.

  • A specialist covert process to protect a high-status individual, building, area or asset
  • Our skilled team members will not make themselves known during the operation except when needed
  • Our teams can liaise and work in conjunction with your government security units
  • The service can include real-time reporting for your peace of mind and be used in conjunction with standard Close Protection

Covert security for your everyday needs

Whether you seek day-to-day security that does not involve a visible Close Protection operative or require undercover security for a specific event or meeting, we can help.

Our Protective Surveillance service is suitable for the following:

  • Sensitive meetings where the presence of security might be detrimental to your image or to the outcome
  • Individuals that require Protection but wish it to be unobtrusive
  • Individuals that do not want Protection but a concerned party does on their behalf

If required, we can provide real-time reporting of movements and the situation of the Principal under our Protection as per standard surveillance operations.
