Covert Surveillance, Intelligence Gathering, Mystery Shopping


Surveillance can be conducted in a variety of ways however most of them are what we class as ‘covert’ meaning the subject is unaware they are being watched. This allows our investigators to obtain evidence of the subject acting naturally; the only people that will know surveillance has taken place will be the investigators who carried it out and the customer who requested it.
Many people still think of the stereotypical detective in a Sherlock Holmes-style hat however a good investigator will be indistinguishable from any other member of the public. Before any surveillance is conducted the investigators will carry out a ‘reccy’ which is essentially a chance for the investigators to gain knowledge of the local area, familiarize themselves with any possible entrance/exit routes and ensure they are dressed appropriately so they don’t raise any suspicion.
Using customised vehicles and body-worn cameras our investigators are able to position themselves in the right place and at the right time to gain evidence without alerting the subject to their presence. Vehicles with high quality cameras can remain static at a property or asset for days at a time without raising suspicion whilst body-worn cameras allow the investigator to get very close to and even engage the subject without raising suspicion.

You can rest assured that after every surveillance operation we will prepare a full intelligence report, this report will show a written log of the observations that were made during the surveillance along with photographs (and video where applicable) to support those claims. In some cases the report is needed to present as evidence in court, our reports will meet all of the requirements and we can provide a witness statement if needed.


What if they get spotted?

Before our agents perform any surveillance they will visit the area in order to find out the best locations to situate themselves in and also the most appropriate attire to avoid raising any suspicion. When carrying out surveillance they are incredibly covert and would be indistinguishable from any other member of the public.

What’s The First Step?

Initially we need to talk with any potential clients either by phone or face to face. This is to get an understanding of your needs and expectations and to see whether Reveal Private Investigations can achieve these. There are no fee’s or costs involved for these meetings.

How Does Surveillance Work?

Surveillance can be carried out in a number of ways on a whole number of targets; the chosen method depends entirely on the individual case. Our expertise allows us to choose the most appropriate method for your investigation, we will then decide what results you need and how we can achieve those.

How Will I Get The Results?

When the surveillance has ben completed our agents will compile a full intelligence report containing a log of all observations including times, locations, pictures and any video evidence obtained. The client chooses how they wish to receive the report.


  • After months of not receiving rent I tried to confront the tenants and they disappeared. I was owed just over £3000 so visited the previous address they supplied but had no luck, all of the phone numbers I had for them were going straight to voicemail so i decided to seek help. I gave the details I had for the tenants and had a new address for them the same week, the case is now going to court and reveal helped me serve the documents as well.

  • After months of trouble with staff we consulted Reveal for assistance, my case manager arranged a meeting and was very discrete upon his visit. After a brief discussion we decided to put our trust in their hands and we have no regrets. Our main concern was ensuring that we had enough evidence to confirm our suspicions before confronting the two staff members, the team advised us on how best to approach the situation and also when the evidence was sufficient enough to present.

  • I had been considering calling an investigator for a long time and finally decided I would speak to somebody just to find out if it would even be possible to find out what my wife had been doing. I felt my case manager went the extra mile to make sure I understood what all the options were and really helped me make the decision without trying to be pushy or do something I wasn't comfortable with. Ultimately the evidence was exactly what i needed to move on with my life.
