Protective Surveillance

Protective surveillance is a highly specialist protection service that is deployed in the event that clients require covert monitoring and protection either for themselves or for a third party. In addition, this service is an effective method for providing a holistic blend of protection, intelligence and risk assessment through both physical and technological surveillance methods.

At Valorous, our protective surveillance offering helps individuals to go about their daily lives without the potential disruption of obtrusive protection, safe in the knowledge that they are covered by our highly trained operatives, who carry out their work from a safe distance.

Able to function alongside Close Protection (CP), or as a standalone service, protective surveillance is ideal for circumstances where standard CP might be seen as vulnerable to threat, invasive or improper. Ordinarily, these scenarios would involve High-Net-Worth Individuals, children and families or cases involving stalking activity.
