Chapter 13 - Evidence & Law

This important chapter covers the legal issues related to surveillance in the modern day. If we obtain evidence, whether by written logs or video it has to be accurate, precise and supported by statements in order to be credible in Court. Eye witness testimony and the continuity of evidence is explained in detail. A very important section is also dedicated to surveillance briefings and de-briefings.
