All DPH Surveillance operators have attended and completed a series of intensive training courses of which are not available commercially and are principally designed to build up Individual and Team skills sets. These courses originate from government sources and are benchmarked against the tradecraft and intelligence gathering methods of the UK Security Services. This has developed a cohesive operational team and ensures quality assurance to clients. Individuals within the team have previous Commercial and Corporate exposure interacting as large or small teams, conducting sophisticated covert surveillance operations for corporate clients in the UK and worldwide.
Most of the Team originate from military backgrounds, however operationally it is important to bring balance, and civilian operators with exceptional skill sets enhance the team and bring an operationally diverse capability. The Team’s ethos during operations is to gather detailed sophisticated intelligence about surveillance. This comprises of keeping a detailed record of the subject’s movements and activities by utilising still photography, digital video and uniquely gaining detailed human intelligence by interfacing in a close proximity to the subject whilst still maintaining a covert stance. The Team composition consists of diverse age groups; including high quality Operators in their early twenties who can operate in environments which other Operators could not achieve without arousing suspicion. This unique skill-set and Trade craft enables the Team to operate covertly in a fast changing and complex environment. The Team has a balanced dynamic of male and female Operatives.
Operations undertaken adhere to a code of practice in line with RIPA 2000 and HRA.
Equipment Communications: Operations are conducted using foot and vehicle mounted, licensed, covert radio systems. A unique sophisticated coded voice procedure is employed by all operators’ in order to reduce the risk of compromise and misinterpretation by either sophisticated or commercial target sets.
Imagery: All operators have video and still photography capability. The Teams deploy high definition covert video and sound capabilities as standard.
Vehicles: Varied types of vehicles can be deployed during multi modal operations in order to blend in with diverse environments. These include cars, vans and motorcycles.
Surveillance Team skill sets are benchmarked against Tradecraft and Intelligence gathering methods employed by the Security and Intelligence Services of the United Kingdom. Operators have been trained in, and have extensive experience in the following:
