Advanced Video Surveillance for Private Investigators


This course builds upon the Introduction to Video Surveillance for Private Investigators course offered by Law Enforcement Video LLC.

This virtual session explores three advanced surveillance techniques: moving surveillance, extreme long-range recording, and night recording. Moving surveillance video is a powerful technique for collecting detailed information a subject's activities. Participants learn how to effectively record evidence-grade surveillance video at distances greater than two miles using long-range lenses for DSLR and mirrorless cameras and camcorder digital zoom capabilities. Students will then learn four different ways they can possibly use their cameras in low-light and no-light conditions. They will also see demonstration video from both low-cost and high-end night recording devices and learn how to use infrared lights as tools for night surveillance.

Surveillance safety and covert operations are stressed throughout this training program. Investigators will be able to use these techniques right away.
