Bug Sweep or Technical Surveillance Counter Measure, Titan Private Investigation Ltd offers a world renowned TSCM or better known as a ‘Bug Sweep’ service.

Many ‘Bug Sweep’ services rely on ‘on the job’ theatrics to look like a professional service is being administered. Here at Titan Investigations, we only utilise the highest quality equipment used by the most highly trained operators. Our Bug Sweeping (TSCM) operatives are all former government operators who are well versed in technological advances and have received the highest possible training, they can quite rightly call themselves professionals in this field.

Bug Sweep - Recording Device

What is a  ‘Bug Sweep’?

A bug sweep is the use of highly technical equipment by specialist operatives to detect covert listening devices and video recording equipment. This service and devices may also be referred to as;

  • Technical Surveillance Counter Measures (TSCM)
  • Listen Devices
  • Covert Cameras
  • Spy Equipment
  • Eavesdrop
  • Wiretap

Bug Sweep – Who May Need This Service?

The list is endless but some scenarios where Titan have searched for listening devices and spy equipment are listed below:

  • A partner who wishes to monitor the movements and conversations of a lover. This may be advantageous to the perpetrator if a divorce is being negotiated and the settlement is likely to be a large sum.
  • A high profile person or of high net worth.
  • A person who owns a second home which has been left empty for a period of time.
  • A company operating in a highly competitive industry.
  • A business involved in sensitive areas of industry.
  • Companies involved in the development of innovative products that competitors would benefit from having knowledge of.
  • An individual who is subject to legal action.
  • A tenant who wishes to ensure that their landlord/lady isn’t a voyeur.

How long does a ‘Bug Sweep’ Usually take?

This is completely dependent on the amount of rooms that need to be searched and their size. An example of a recent case is where we were instructed by a client to sweep a two bedroomed London apartment. We were requested to focus our attention on the master bedroom, kitchen, lounge and entrance hall which took our operatives 4 hours to inspect and remove devices.

How do we perform a ‘Bug Sweep’ Audit?

Titan Private Investigation has a team of specialist former government operatives who use professional equipment of the highest technological quality to ensure that we identify all covert listening devices.

We utilise 2 operators to conduct:

An assessment of overlooking buildings which would afford a view to record movements and trigger a potential surveillance team laying in wait.

A fingertip search of all rooms identified which includes a physical inspection of electrical sockets, light fittings and switches, air vents, voids and appliances.

A sweep of all rooms using;
Spectral Analysis Detection,
Near-Field Transmitter Locator,
Non Linear Junction Detector,
GSM Locator.

After the ‘bug sweep’ is completed and all listening devices and spy equipment have been removed, you’ll receive a comprehensive report containing imagery of the service.
