Research and Plan

Research is very important and number one priority, especially if you intend to tail a target or conduct a stakeout - If you are not familiar with the location and have not taken the time to plan ahead, your efforts will be wasted…

  • You must always research and study the location intently before making your trip. You need to know the layout, activity level, and suitable traveling routes or surveillance locations. It is very important to be familiar with your surroundings and highly familiar with your targets habits.

  • Always take a different route going there and coming back, and if possible never arrive or leave from the same location.

  • If you’re using a car or van for a stake out, ensure you look as inconspicuous as possible – take seat in the passenger or rear seat, read a book, study a map, just do something that gives the impression you are waiting for someone.

  • do not wear distinctive clothes or carry distinctive objects - blend in.

  • If using public transport, roaming tickets are ideal for any journey - you have flexibility over your route and will keep your options open.
