Surveillance has played a significant role in the investigation industry for many years and here at Candour Private Investigation, we have years of expertise in all forms of surveillance tasks.

The use of evidence gathered during surveillance is often the most convincing and unbiased evidence available in a court of law. It can help confirm or disprove claims as long as appropriate investigative practices following the law and good video documentation have been carried out.


At Candour Private Investigation we have undertaken a wide variety of surveillance activities that include:

  • Static Observations
  • Mobile Surveillance
  • Covert Surveillance
  • GPS Tracking
  • Cases such as fraudulent benefit and insurance claimants, employees suspected of theft, gathering evidence for anti-social behaviour and monitoring extra-marital affairs are all part of an investigator’s role, in getting to the truth of a situation for clients.

Insurance-related surveillance is a major element of investigators work. Claims Adjusters do not have the time or resource to investigate whether claimants are telling the truth so in scenarios where there is a case for reasonable doubt, using surveillance helps to give an unbiased view of what actions a claimant has taken, especially if the claim pertains to personal injury. There have been numerous cases documented where personal injury claimants have been proven to be perfectly able-bodied.


You can rest assured that our investigators will be highly skilled in critical thinking, situational awareness, attention to detail, exercising judgment and decision-making. All essential elements that help bring an investigation to a successful conclusion. Our worldwide network of international agents, with the appropriate specialist skills in their country, ensures that we can start your investigation without delay, be that in the UK or overseas.


Our trained investigators frequently use video surveillance devices to gather evidence that normally would be extremely difficult to obtain. For example, we use highly sophisticated cameras, and video recorders allowing good quality images to be produced at a distance and therefore conducive to surveillance operations. We also have specialist surveillance vehicles for when the complexities of an investigation require their use.

Many of our investigators come from a Police or Military background or have many years experience in the field as private investigators and have been hand-picked for the type of training and experience they would have gained.
