Surveillance is the close observation of a person, group of people, behaviours, activities, infrastructure, building etc for the purpose of managing, influencing, directing, or protecting. There are several different methods of surveillance, including GPS tracking, camera observation, stake-outs, data mining and profiling, and biometric surveillance among others.
Traditional observational surveillance methods are typically limited by the stationary nature of the camera, which is usually handled manually or fixed upon a tripod or other structure. Aerial surveillance can be performed using a helicopter; whilst this achieves the desired result, it is also very costly.
Unmanned aircraft systems provide the ideal solution as the “eyes in the sky” to problems and limitations faced by other surveillance methods. Drone surveillance presents an easier, faster, and cheaper method of data collection, and a number of other key advantages. Drone aircraft have the ability to enter narrow and confined spaces, produce minimal noise, and can be equipped with night vision cameras and thermal sensors, allowing them to provide imagery that the human eye is unable to detect.
CSI aircrafts provide high manoeuvrability and can hover with ease. They can provide live streaming of detailed data, follow objects or intruders from a safe distance and quickly cover a large area, but also record images as key evidence for follow up investigations. Unmanned aircrafts have found other applications in industrial plants: reducing the costs of asset theft, in addition to monitoring and verifying the quality and productivity of employees.
Unmanned aircraft provide rapid response and fast “eyes on” to the target area with live updates control stations while active waypoint tracking can be maintained based on the target parameters, like thermal signatures. A key advantage is its ability to collect imagery, ideally suited for reconnaissance or rapid situation awareness with application for ground force units to detect and monitor potential threats from a safe distance. CSI drones in perimeter security do not only minimise requirement for officer foot patrols but provide additional oversight in instances where security guards are deployed to ensure their adherence to patrolling routines. The speed, size, maneuverability and additional technologies make drones the perfect supplement to ground security teams seeking to perform monitoring tasks more quickly and efficiently. Drones have a competitive edge over stationary cameras, as intruders can’t easily step out of sight, and they can cover areas that are normally out of reach.
Our drones are instrumental in managing the critical facets of security & safety at major events, from event security infrastructure, through to spectator and crowd control and safety to overall health and safety planning. This includes the completion of initial security risk assessments to developing bespoke security infrastructure solutions. Areas covered include general security, such as vehicular access, landscapes, fire evacuation procedure and adaptation of the original building design. In addition to monitoring and rapid reaction, UAVs can provide detailed visual documentation of sites, enabling effective analysis, risk management and security planning.

Yes, officers on duty are dressed in uniform unless performing plain clothes operations. In this case, they carry a CSI wallet badge for identification purposes and WA Police approved Security licence listing all licence classes and photographic evidence.
Best to keep an eye on www.seek.com.au where we advertise job vacancies. If you are interested in joining the CSI team you can contact us direct. We are happy to keep your details on our system and contact you should a vacancy become available.
CSI are happy to prepare an ongoing maintenance arrangement. Our technicians will conduct complete system checks, perform necessary upgrades, and cleaning to ensure your surveillance system is active and not under performing.
On a regular basis we provide refresher training such as de-escalation of force, predictive profiling, effective community engagement, tactical and operational intelligence, report writing, personable and tactical communication, ethics and professionalism.
Depending on the assignment, officers can work individually or in a group setting. For example, investigations and consulting are performed with one officer, special events or high crime hot spot areas may have additional officers.
Most insurance companies appreciate you lowering the risk of burglary by installing a monitored security system, and reward you by giving you a discount on your premium, a lower excess or both.
Essentially, Security Risk Assessments allow you to identify, analyse and evaluate the security risks that face your organisation, its assets and its people. From here, you become better equipped to mitigate or address these risks.
By conducting an SRA, all areas of your organisation become responsible for and aware of the security risks they face. This leads to greater communication, collaboration, decision making and preparation from every corner of your organisation. Security Risk Assessments are designed to identify security weaknesses within your organisation and to design an effective action plan in response. This ultimately strengthens your organisation, allows you to take ownership of your security and to allocate resources effectively.
