Covert Surveillance / Keeping you informed

Thailand Security Covert Surveillance

Covert surveillance services provided by trained and experienced Private Investigators can provide the necessary evidence if you suspect one of your employees, a contractor or temporary person of acting illegally, or against your companies interests.

If you want discreet proof of the individual’s actions then an investigator from Crown Intelligence can help. Common areas where corporate surveillance services can provide solutions are…

  • Possible moonlighting
  • Involvement with a competitor
  • Suspected fraudulent sick leave
  • Suspected illegal activity
  • Falsifying time sheets, working hours or activities
  • Corporate espionage
  • Company theft

Moonlighting and competitors: If an employee is working for another company while in your employ then this could be in breach of their working terms or contract. Conversely, there may be the addition of a conflict of interests between the two companies, or worst still your employee could be passing on information from your company to their other employer (possibly a competitor); surveillance services can provide photographic proof of this.

Fraudulent sick leave: An employee might have been signed off work by a doctor, and could be receiving sick pay from your company. At the same time, they could be working elsewhere and receiving two incomes. This would almost certainly be in breach of the work contract with your employee, but even worse, it could be also be illegal.

Suspected illegal activity: Is the person in question involved in illegal activity? If this is drugs, counterfeit goods, stolen property or theft, it could influence other employees if they are not already involved. Carefully mounted discreet surveillance services carried out by our private Investigators can provide the evidence to stop this activity, and bring the person to justice.

Falsifying time sheets or work activity: Any employee or contractor may be returning false time sheets for their own benefit. An employee who may be involved in visiting clients or customers as part of their activities is lying about where they have been or what they have done. Either of these sequences of events usually means a loss of revenue for your company at the very least, and could even result in loss of customers or legal issues.

Corporate espionage

Industrial espionage means activities such as theft of trade secrets, and technological surveillance. Information passed on to another company, particularly a competitor can often make the difference between success and failure. If a trade secret is stolen, or sensitive information is passed to a competitor the playing field may be tipped in favor of the competitor. Our surveillance services are nearly always involved in this type of activity.

We give a solution through private investigation

Taking into account the sensitivity of any investigation, Crown Intelligence can instigate a discreet and careful investigation, carrying out surveillance or other services where required. We would also carry out a discreet in-depth investigation to determine details of individuals when no suspects are known.

Company Theft

Private Investigation
If you are the owner of a company, a director, executive or the manager of a department that is suffering from company theft of items, information or data then this can be a distressing time. Crown Intelligence can help with a private investigator that can carry out a full investigation using many methods at his disposal to trace and locate the person or persons responsible.

Company Product or Item Theft
Company theft can fall into many areas; it may be either that a product is stolen from the company, or staff or visitors/contractors remove items such as laptops, mobile phones, or personal belongings. Our private investigators are involved in several areas of investigation such as, but not limited to, the following…

  • Local investigation and intelligence work
  • Use of hidden cameras or recorders
  • Investigation into suspects’ personal actions and lives
  • Planting of “bait” that has been tagged with locator beacons
  • Contractor investigations (cleaners, service people, maintenance, and so on)
  • Introduction of undercover agents working as employees

Company Document or Data Theft
Company theft of company documents and data are generally associated with either a disgruntled employee who wishes to upset the everyday operation of the company, or occasionally someone who has a “customer” for the information that they are removing or copying from company. The latter can be very serious with its potential affect on the company itself and possibly its customers. Company theft of this nature can include such items as financial reports, contact lists, employee records, confidential documents, and software.

Tracking down persons stealing or copying company data is often approached differently by our Private Investigators to identifying a person stealing property or belongings. Both the reason to carry out this type of company theft and the potential customer who is receiving the information may be linked directly or indirectly to a competitor.

Areas of investigation that may be followed depending on the circumstances could be…

  • Intelligence investigation on suspected employees or contractors
  • Local investigation
  • Tracing the information lost to its possible consequences and use
  • Use of hidden cameras
  • Phone and e-mail communications investigations

External Company Theft of Data
Competitors or “interested parties” can use other investigation agencies to spy on your company. These actions can be carried out by using a person or company to “hack” into your computer network or stand-alone PC to extract information. Although you might have firewalls and restrictions set up within your work environment there are many ways to break through these defenses to obtain valuable information.
