Covert and overt surveillance is a useful and effective tool for gathering information on a person or group and surveillance is typically used as part of an investigation into workplace crime, insurance fraud and other illegal activities.


Covert surveillance is, as the name suggests, carried out without the subject’s knowledge whereas overt surveillance is performed using devices that are visible and obvious.

Using many different techniques, including mobile surveillance, static observation and the placement of covert surveillance equipment ensures that the best results are delivered at all times.


All of our operatives are highly skilled with a military or police background and many years of experience. Lynx Protection LTD surveillance operatives are trained to use specialist equipment, including GPS tracking systems and covert body cameras.

Surveillance operations conducted by our operatives are always conducted with integrity and professionalism and operatives employed by us are fully compliant with the parameters of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 and other legal requirements.


Any evidence produced as part of an overt or covert surveillance investigation, including photographic and video evidence, records, and logs, are available upon request and can be used in court.
