Surveillance Detection Training Course Concept:

The CROPS® Surveillance Detection Training course has been designed to teach Delegates whose primary activity is within a ‘protective surveillance’ role, how to identify a threat and operating procedures used when protecting their Principal and themselves against conventional and modern sophisticated threats through non-alarming and aggressive anti and counter surveillance techniques.

Counter surveillance is the most important part of any protective surveillance, once the threat has been identified the team can act accordingly, be this to go to ground in a ‘safe haven’ or extract aggressively from the area. If an attacking team is observing your movements and general pattern of life, they are doing this to gather intelligence prior to carrying out a physical attack or kidnap.

This is a very demanding course, both physically and mentally. Delegates attending should be selected at unit level and with the correct aptitude for task.

Our Training Aims:

On this course Delegates will learn how to detect the presence of an attacking team, should your Principal be under surveillance. Delegates will be instructed how to identify choke points, danger areas and how to avoid them, while drawing the attacking team out into the open via laying traps to confirm your suspicions. Once confirmed, candidates will implement counter surveillance routes gathering intelligence covertly on the attacking team.

The instructors have many years’ experience in these methods of operations, having honed their skills in hostile environments across the world. They are still very much operational which with the continued deployments mean that they are ahead of their game.
