Surveillance Dead End Street
Surveillance of premises situated within a court, dead end street and no through roads require extra caution and planning as residents within these type of locations usually know each other more so than people in normal residential streets due to the limited traffic in those locations.
- It may be necessary to establish a vehicle driven by the subject and undertake indirect surveillance of the property, in this instance it is incumbent on the subject to venture from their address to observe their activity's.
- Attempts to drive through the court, dead end street or no through road should be resisted even though it may be frustrating not knowing what may be going on out of view at the subjects address.
- On most occasions you will see nothing and you run the risk of exposing your surveillance vehicle to either the subject or other residents who may spot your vehicle ‘siting-off’ the location and raise an alarm in the area with residents in the court, dead end street or no through road.
- If the investigator considers that the location of the surveillance will raise concern with residents surrounding the subjects location. It should be considered advisable in attending the local Police Station prior to commencing surveillance and supplying them with a ‘Surveillance Notification’ form as a matter of courtesy outlining your vehicle details, name and mobile phone number.
This may negate the police attending to question your motives and draw further attention to your surveillance location.
