Surveillance can be very challenging and in some circumstances, we do loose our targets. Sometimes its intentional if we think the subject being followed is being evasive. On most occasions its because of high traffic density, traffic lights, the manner of driving of the subject or other external factors. An example of our success to date; we have maintained surveillance on a target for 13 weeks undetected. It is of note that not even some law enforcement surveillance teams can achieve this.
No we do not refund money if we lose a Subject. This is part of the risks associated with surveillance which we discuss with you prior to deployment. However, if we do on a rare occasion lose a Subject, we ensure that the remaining time allocated is used towards another deployment.
