Hostile Surveillance

Keeping You Safe

Hostile surveillance is the act of conducting surveillance to gather intelligence before an aggressive action, like vandalism, sabotage, or assault. 


It often involves intrusive observation, for example planting listening devices, eavesdropping on conversations, or trespassing on a property. We don’t conduct acts of surveillance like this because it goes against our code of ethics, and it is often illegal. We can, however, help you detect when you’ve been the victim of hostile surveillance.

Results-Driven Private Investigators

Why choose Private Investigations UK for counter surveillance?

Like all private detectives, our agents are driven by results. Unlike other agencies, however,  PI UK is dedicated to the client’s experience. We understand how distressing it can be to feel as though someone is watching you, which is why we make sure that you feel supported throughout your investigation. We offer 24/7 service to all our clients. You can call us anytime, knowing that your knowledgeable, friendly, and understanding investigator will be at the other end of the phone.


At the end of every investigation, we provide you with a professional, detailed final report that is organised and easy to understand. It contains all the evidence we have gathered, including high quality, time-and-date stamped video and photographs. We make sure we can help you to prove beyond doubt that someone was conducting counter surveillance on you.

Bug Sweeping

Find Hidden Bug Sweeping Devices

Sometimes people looking to find out information about you will secretly plant listening devices called bugs in your home, vehicle, or business property.

These devices, often tiny and inconspicuous, record audio from their surroundings. This audio might include your private conversations, details of any business deals you’re involved in, or evidence of any activity you might be undertaking. Increasingly, bugs can transmit data directly to cloud storage, so even if the device is destroyed, your observer will still have their recordings of you.

Other bugs might be recording your location. Small GPS tracking devices can be planted in cars and on bikes to record where someone is going. We’re highly experienced in vehicle tracking, so we know precisely what to look for when sweeping your car.

We have been developing bug detecting strategies for over 15 years. We can conduct efficient sweeps on your property to ensure that you are safe. With state of the art equipment and experienced investigators, we work hard to bring you the peace of mind that you deserve.

If you’re interested in a bug sweeping, please get in touch with us on 0800 002 9858. Alternatively, you can fill out a contact form, and one of our agents will get back to you today.

Covert Surveillance

Discreet Counter Surveillance Measures

Covert surveillance is one of the best tools we have as private investigators. It’s unintrusive, and it allows us to track someone’s public activity and movements without compromising discretion. It can, however, be incredibly frustrating to feel like you’ve been placed under covert surveillance. Unless the person conducting counter surveillance is actively harassing you, you can’t take any legal recourse to stop them. You can, however, employ countermeasures.

It might sound unintuitive, but the best way to stop covert surveillance is to employ covert surveillance of your own. If you ask us to do this, we will usually begin by discretely observing you. It doesn’t take long for us to notice if someone else is interested in your activity. We’ll watch for which vehicles seem to appear wherever you go, and we can conduct traces on them to find details about their owners.

If you think someone is following you, please get in touch with us for a friendly chat about how we can help.

Tracing Services

Who is Watching You?

What if you already have the evidence that you’re being observed? Have you already found a bug? Or recorded the details of a vehicle that is following you? With this information, we can conduct tracing services to find out who is watching you.

It’s not a good idea to examine a bug on your own, as it may contain malware that will damage your computer. We can safely look at any listening device you find and detail what it has recorded. We can also potentially trace the owner through its metadata or associated cloud storage account. 

In 2009, our agency started conducting investigations in 2009. We’ve been perfecting our tracing strategies ever since. PI UK continuously adapts our methods with emerging technological advancements to ensure that all bases are covered. Please get in touch with us to discuss how we can help you trace someone who might be following you.
