What are Covert Investigations?
Covert investigations are fact finding missions much like conventional investigations with a couple key differences. First, the intent is to not alert anyone that an investigation is taking place. Second, special investigators are tasked with assuming an identity to deceive other individuals for the purpose of covertly gathering not just intelligence but also evidence.
Security incidents can occur and often times the organization is not equipped or experienced to deal with the issue. Internal threats can pose an even greater difficulty in identifying the root cause. Unique circumstances often call for unique solutions. Covert operators can be inserted to investigate an issue internally without raising suspicion of suspected threats. Using extensive experience coupled with advanced and discrete technology our operators can uncover the evidence needed to identify a suspected threat.
How does it work?
Our consultants will assess your situation to determine the viability of executing a covert investigation and assess the likely possible outcomes. A risk matrix will be conducted to determine the level of risk both to the client, PMV and individual safety of personnel. Once the situation has been accurately assessed we will work with you to develop an investigative plan that best suits your concerns. Once the investigative plan has been agreed upon we will insert our operator(s) to commence the covert operation. You will be assigned a case handler and they will provide any updates or new developments to the investigation as they happen.
The experience our operators bring to the table is what sets us apart from other security companies. We have a wealth of experience amongst our operators performing investigations such as former special agents, criminal detectives, police officers and paramilitary contractors. We’ve developed a covert investigation program with the emphasis on results. All of our operators follow standardized PMV protocols to yield consistent, safe and effective results when conducting investigations.
You may notice in our other services we rely on state of the art equipment to perform some of our services. We rely heavily on equipment to enhance our agent’s effectiveness in the field whether it’s hidden cameras, long range cameras, drones, audio bugs, communications equipment, radio signals interception & jamming and disguises etc.
Do I need a Covert Investigation?
That can be a difficult question to answer as there are several factors that would affect the decision. The answer may not always be black and white. Ultimately you are the deciding authority however if we recommend you not to initiate a covert investigation it is based off our knowledge & experience and we do not want to see clients use hard earned budgets on a wasted operation. We also reserve the right the right to refuse any requests with a risk matrix that exceeds tolerable thresholds either for the client or PMV.
