Level 3 Covert Foot Surveillance

The award is based on the core competency training for covert investigators undertaking foot surveillance.

Aim Of The Course

‘To provide the learner with the knowledge and skills, to carry out foot surveillance to the highest level within a trained team.’

This qualification has 3 units, which will develop understanding of:

1. Legal and organisational requirements in relation to Covert Foot Surveillance (CFS)
2. How to conduct covert foot surveillance operations.
3. How to manage information, intelligence and evidence through CFS.

Management Of Covert Operations

The course is designed to ensure those investigators who have responsibility for managing operations where covert methods and tactics are employed, are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge required to carry out that role.

The course is supported by a cadre of associates, who are experts within their specialist area. The course can be tailored to meet the specific requirements of the individual or organisation.

  • Vehicle and building occupancy.

All training is delivered in line with current good practice and is student centred. A balance of theory and practice is used with realistic scenarios. Pre course discussion with managers is encouraged regarding attendees and duration/design.

Legal Content

All training (unless requested) is based around evidence gathering. Unlike some training providers who teach intelligence based information gathering, we promote evidence gathering from contemplation to Crown Court. All input is therefore up to date and in line with UK practice.
