GPS Vehicle Tracking

Discreet tracking devices provide pin-point accurate location data in real time to allow our team to track vehicles from the office.

Discreet Monitoring

Used to supplement our investigations, GPS Vehicle Tracking can help investigators detect patterns of behaviour in a subject’s movements. This information can be used as intelligence in itself, but can also help us find an appropriate time of day for physical surveillance at a particular site. Because the location is communicated in real time, tracking can also be used to catch irresponsible drivers, who may be speeding regularly.
Our small tracking devices attach to a vehicle magnetically, allowing them to be fitted to a discreet location in only a matter of seconds, and removed without leaving a mark. 

They won’t be noticed during mechanical work, and will only be fitted at an appropriate time. We provide you with a daily report detailing the date, time and location of the tracked vehicle, and talk over the results in a daily phone call at an appropriate time. We work with you, using your knowledge of the individual and our technical and behavioural understanding to build a full picture of the subject’s movements.

Legality of Vehicle Tracking

Before fitting a vehicle with a tracking device, our team always ensure that there is ‘Legitimate Interest’ for this investigation. We perform a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA), looking at alternative options and the necessity of the device. This ensures that our use of GPS vehicle tracking devices is always legal and in line with the Association of British Insurers’ (ABI) Good Practice Guide. We always ensure that we have taken the least invasive method of surveillance available to us.

Does GPS Vehicle Tracking apply to me?

Following a vehicle on quiet or rural roads.

Vehicle Tracking

Without a crowd to blend into, physical surveillance becomes challenging, and following a vehicle on quiet or rural roads can lead a subject to become suspicious. They may test their theory by taking circuitous routes, or change their destination, compromising the investigation and leaving us with no evidence of their behaviour.
GPS vehicle trackers provide an indetectable alternative as they are completely hidden. The tracker will relay information to both computer and mobile, meaning that our investigators can follow from the office or from another location on the ground, to catch up with the subject at a safer area. Vehicle Tracking Services produce daily reports and a daily phone call to talk you through the results and discuss next steps.

The vehicle drives erratically and I don’t think surveillance will be able to follow.

Vehicle Tracking

If someone is suspected of routinely speeding or driving dangerously, following in a vehicle to gather evidence is both difficult and dangerous. By applying a GPS Tracking Device to a hidden area of the vehicle, our investigators can follow the vehicle’s movements from a safe distance. Each location data point is relayed in real time and at intervals we can manage, for example, every two seconds. We can extrapolate from this data to show the speed of the vehicle between points, and produce a report to show recurring instances of speeding or dangerous driving.

Finding Hidden Assets

We offer a number of tracing services and have helped many of our clients discover hidden assets but some investigations require a more bespoke solution. When our client and his business partner decided they were going to part ways it became apparent that one of the partners had being evasive and was not providing accurate information about his assets.

The Maintenance Dispute

Unlike Scotland, in England there is no limit on how long a partner may have to pay maintenance, our client found himself paying a substantial monthly sum to his ex-wife despite having being told by multiple sources that she was working full time and financially stable. We did some research and discovered that the hours she was working didn’t match up with the money she had claimed to be earning.
