Surveillance techniques



During this 3-day training we will inform you completely about the latest strategies and techniques in the field of dynamic and static surveillance in both urban and woodland areas. Conducting a tactical surveillance is one of the most complex methods of information gathering. Partly due to the fact that today's society is becoming increasingly 'suspicious', a professional surveillance can only be performed by a specialist in that field.


During this training, theory and practice alternate in a pleasant way.


The training consists of three parts:


Module 1: Dynamic and static surveillance

During this module we will teach you everything about tracking a person by vehicle, on foot or by public transport. We will teach you everything about planning, preparing and using a static surveillance post.


Module 2: Preparing dynamic surveillance missions and ABC procedures

It is very important that you do not attract attention during a surveillance mission. We teach you the "do's and don'ts" during this observation. We will also practice how to follow our subject dynamically by using the ABC-procedure.


Module 3: Recording

During this module, our teachers will teach you how to capture activities or events on photo, video or in the form of an audio recording.


During the training you will use the text-book 'Surveillance Techniques', which has been developed and published by IACA in-house.


Course format: open, private or customized

Normally, this training is taught in a classroom setting. Nevertheless, we can imagine that, given your work, you would like to ask questions freely. In that case it is possible to provide a private training at our location for a minimum of six participants. We also provide, as you are used to from us, completely customized training programs based on (parts of) this module. We are happy to make you a suitable offer.


Our instructors have been screened and have entered into a confidentiality agreement with various government departments. Creating a specific non-disclosure agreement for the benefit of your organization or service is of course no problem.
