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,
Professionalism.
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.

Student Chaperone

According to an audit by the UK Council For International Student Affairs (UKCISA) there are approximately 430,000 non UK students living and studying at UK Universities in any one year. This inevitably can lead to complications for these students that others may not experience. “Culture shock” describes the impact of moving from a familiar culture to one which is unfamiliar.

It is an experience described by people who have travelled abroad to work, live or study; it can be felt to a certain extent even when abroad on holiday. It can affect anyone, including international students. It includes the shock of a new environment, meeting lots of new people and learning the ways of a different country.

It also includes the shock of being separated from the important people in your life, maybe family, friends, colleagues, teachers: people you would normally talk to at times of uncertainty, people who give you support and guidance. When familiar sights, sounds, smells or tastes are no longer there you can miss them very much.

If you are tired and jet-lagged when you arrive small things can be upsetting and out of all proportion to their real significance. The process of culture shock can be illustrated by a model known as the “W” curve which has 5 stages;

  1. “Honeymoon” stage
  2. “Distress” stage
  3. “Re-integration” stage
  4. “Autonomy” stage
  5. “Independence” stage

Overseas students may be increasingly vulnerable to crime and more likely to become victims for various reasons. Titan Executive Protection supply a single point of contact in the UK for both the visiting student and the parents ensuring there is always someone able to assist at any time of the day or night.
