Fundamentals of Physical Surveillance (3rd ed.)

A Guide for Uniformed and Plainclothes Personnel

Raymond P. Siljander,

Fundamentals of Physical Surveillance: A Guide for Uniformed and Plainclothes Personnel
This updated and expanded new edition is a significant revision of the second edition, presented 14 years previous. This edition provides the most current information about surveillance methods, supporting photographic equipment, and vision enhancing products. Although physical surveillance remains an intuitive art regarding the secret visual observation of a person, activity, or location, important new science and technology improved the tools and with that came enriched tradecraft. Physical surveillance may be urban or rural, stationary or mobile, foot or vehicular, or occur on public transportation. In fact, one surveillance operation can feature several or all of them. This edition presents the latest methods, which investigators continually adapt to the immediate circumstances. Updated chapters include: Surveillance Applications, Vehicular Surveillance, Stationary Surveillance, Undercover Surveillance, Vision and Aids for Vision Extension and Enhancement, Surveillance Photography, Tips for the Surveillant, and Report Writing. In addition the text is richly illustrated with important and helpful examples. Because physical surveillance precedes virtually all organized criminal and terrorist attacks, security personnel need the capacity to detect surveillance and that requires truly understanding it. Written in a style that professional investigators prefer, the information is presented quickly, decisively, and to the point. Whether the reader is a novice or veteran investigator, in law enforcement or civil investigation, this unique book offers a complete, cohesive, and expert text on the subject of physical surveillance. It represents the most current and authoritative resource available.
