Better safe than sorry! Preventive observation

Better safe than sorry is a spell that currently applies to every Dutch person. In this corona era, everyone is suddenly extra aware of their environment. At Strongwood, this saying has been the order of the day almost every day for years, I mean our activities in 'security'. Did you know that a lot of our safety work consists of preventive observations?

What is a preventive observation?

Preventive observation is when an observer (or observation team) keeps an eye on a certain environment, certain person or specific location (in an unobtrusive way). This with the aim of collecting information with which a threatening situation can be signaled in advance, an incident can be prevented, a file can be built up (for example, for making a declaration) and so on.

Unfortunately, nowadays it is increasingly necessary for companies or individuals to take preventive measures. This includes known or wealthy persons or families who may be the target of criminals or persons who are in hiding because they have become the victim of a loverboy or a family drama. Preventive observation has been used a lot in recent years, again: better safe than sorry!

How is a preventive observation performed?

The way in which a preventive observation is carried out differs per case. In one situation it is desirable that we operate completely unseen, in another case it is beneficial when we are conspicuously present (this can also send a warning signal) or we are completely absorbed in the environment.

Because a problem, threat or other anomalous situation can be identified at an early stage, the necessity of using other security methods, such as personal protection, can be avoided. In this case, this is of course advantageous for the freedom of movement of the VIP and to use current terms: a preventive observation is completely corona-proof as physical contact with the VIP is not necessary.
