What does CROP mean and when is it used?

CROP is an acronym for Covert Rural Observation Post. This is a surveillance specialism generally conducted in rural surroundings, however CROP work can be utilised within an urban environment. It is the art of blending into rural surroundings and maintaining covert observations.

Why is CROP Surveillance a specialist skill?

CROP is a Police term, within the Military it’s generally referred to as RURAL. We use former Police and Military CROP operatives who have successfully completed a rigorous pre-selection procedure and successfully passed a 4 week course designed to weed those out who don’t have the desired attributes. They are the experts in rural observation point construction, concealment, covert ingress and egress, night navigation, orientation and able to remain self-sufficient for up to 48 hours.

Why use former CROP Professionals?

Titan Private Investigation uses former CROP professionals due to;
Rigorous pre-selection which ensures they possess the correct attributes,
The high level of training and refresher courses received,
Hours of operational experience,
Qualified in Photography and High Tech Equipment,
Many of the companies that offer this service use operatives with little or no training, inadequate equipment, below standard cameras and lenses resulting in poor product and high risk of compromise causing you to pay twice.
