Mobile Surveillance Training Film (1974)

Despite this film being 38 years old, very little has changed in the way of the methods used.

Note that the emphasis is on not being burned (ie detected) so there is an acknowledged higher risk of losing contact. It is better to lose contact and try again later than to blow the whole operation by being detected.

This film covers the pickup and follow phases of mobile surveillance, but not the housing.

    1. I love how they used both the theme tunes from 'Shaft' and 'Star Trek' in between the '70s elevator music.

      Can you dig it?

    1. It would be great if they had one on foot surveillance as well.
