Domestic Surveillance – Surveillance is the monitoring of the behavior, activities, or other changing information, usually of people and often in a surreptitious manner. It most usually refers to observation of individuals or groups by government organizations, but disease surveillance, for example, is monitoring the progress of a disease in a community.

The word surveillance comes from the French word for “watching over”.

The word surveillance may be applied to observation from a distance by means of electronic equipment (such as CCTV cameras), or interception of electronically transmitted information (such as Internet traffic or phone calls). It may also refer to simple, relatively no- or low-technology methods such as human intelligence agents and postal interception.

Domestic surveillance refers to measures undertaken to prevent surveillance, including covert surveillance. Domestic surveillance may include electronic methods such as bug sweeping, the process of detecting surveillance devices, including covert listening devices and visual surveillance devices. More often than not, domestic surveillance will employ a set of actions that, when followed, reduce the risk of surveillance.

Domestic surveillance is the art of performing surveillance on those who are performing surveillance themselves and is used to ensure that the target is not being followed or under surveillance from another source. For instance, on one of the San Bernardino Domestic surveillance cases, our client hired one of our domestic surveillance private investigators to watch see who was following him, he become aware that someone is following him around and videotaping his activities. The client then hired San Bernardino Domestic Surveillance investigators to identify the people watching him and to determine who hired them.

In another case, Domestic surveillance is used in cases where someone may be stalking another person. Stalkers attempt to follow and determine the patterns and activities of their targets. Domestic surveillance can be used to determine who is responsible for the stalking without alerting the stalker or causing the stalker to withdraw. If the stalker withdrew, it would make it impossible to identify and neutralize their threat. Domestic surveillance is an extremely difficult surveillance operation. Not only is the investigator attempting to perform surveillance on someone that may be proficient in surveillance techniques themselves, but they must do it without being detected during times when that person is performing surveillance and is, therefore, actively monitoring their surroundings.
