Vehicle Tracking – A Surveillance Aid
Vehicle tracking is often used as an aid to surveillance. GPS tracking devices can be put on a vehicle before surveillance takes place to build a pattern of life and to gauge when best to deploy private detectives to get the evidence you need.
Having a vehicle tracker deployed on the subject’s vehicle aids operatives when conducting investigations. If for instance the subject runs a red light and the vehicle is tracked, we can then follow the tracker while the subject is out of view until we have traced and caught back up with them.
What is Vehicle Tracking ?
When you think of vehicle tracking, you may imagine a car being trailed. While surveillance contains a lot of elements, vehicle tracking utilises GPS technology that is extremely sophisticated. A GPS device is placed on a vehicle in a location where it will not be seen so that our operatives are able to track the vehicle wherever it is. The vehicle will be monitored in real time, giving you a 24/7 scope of where the vehicle is. You can use a GPS tracker on a range of vehicles – we will discuss your options with you based on the vehicle that needs tracking.
Why use vehicle tracking?
Why might you want to make vehicle tracking part of your surveillance? Vehicle tracking is not completely necessary in every investigation, yet it is often highly valuable. You may have doubts about a partner and wish to know where they are going at certain times and if they are telling the truth. GPS vehicle tracking can help you to uncover their location, and if they are going where they say they are – this can be invaluable in marital investigations. However, this is not the only use for vehicle tracking. If you run a business and want to know where an employee is taking a company car or other vehicle, this can confirm or disprove suspicions you may have. It is an excellent starting point to a deeper investigation.
What can you learn from vehicle tracking?
When you utilise vehicle tracking, you can expect to learn where the person is going and at what time. You will see what time they arrive at a destination, the length of time they remain there, and when they leave. Vehicle tracking will also reveal if any other stops are made, as well as data such as whether the subject has run a red light while in the vehicle. Whether you want short or long term vehicle tracking, you can get the information you need.
How does vehicle tracking work ?
Our trained operatives will affix the vehicle tracker to an undetectable location on the vehicle without entering it. Our devices are small and magnetic, making them very subtle and unobtrusive. They will then activate the GPS tracker so that the results can be accurately gathered within the given time frame. You will receive updates via text of where the vehicle is and if it is leaving a certain area. This can carry on for days or longer, until you request for the tracking to end, at which point the operative will subtly and covertly remove the tracker without arousing suspicion. When the vehicle tracking part of the investigation is over, you will receive a written report telling you about each movement the vehicle made so that you can decide whether to pursue further investigation.
Is vehicle tracking legal?
You may be concerned over the legality of vehicle tracking using GPS tracking devices, but we are here to assure your fears. When using our GPS tracking devices, we are always fully compliant with the ABI Policy and Good Practice Guide, so that the data gathered is well within legal bounds.
Vehicle tracking helps to provide you with a sense of added security if you have high value vehicles that you wish to keep safe. Aside from proving how and when a vehicle is being used, it can also be useful for those going away on long trips who wish to keep an eye on their most valuable assets.
