Skiptracing (also skip tracing, or debtor and fugitive
recovery is the process of locating a person's whereabouts for any number
of purposes. A skiptracer is someone who performs this task, which may be
the person's primary occupation. The term "skip" (as a noun) refers to the
person being searched for, and is derived from the idiomatic expression
"to skip town", meaning to depart (perhaps in a rush), leaving minimal
clues behind to "trace" the "skip" to a new location.
tactics may be employed by a debt collector, process server, bail bondsman
or bail agency enforcer (bounty hunters), repossession agent, private
investigator, lawyer, police detective, journalist, or by any person
attempting to locate a subject whose contact information is not
immediately known. Similar techniques have also been utilized by
investigators to locate witnesses in criminal trials.
Counter Surveillance & Debugging
Counter surveillance may include
electronic methods such as bug sweeping, the process of detecting
surveillance devices, including covert listening devices, visual
surveillance devices. More often than not, counter surveillance will
employ a set of actions (countermeasures) that, when followed, reduce the
risk of surveillance.
Electronic countermeasures - Most bugs emit
some form of electromagnetic radiation, usually radio waves. The standard
counter-measure for bugs is therefore to "sweep" for them with a receiver,
looking for the radio emissions.
Sweeping is not foolproof.
Advanced bugs can be remotely operated to switch on and off, and some even
rapidly switch frequencies according to a predetermined pattern in order
to make location with sweepers more difficult. A bug that has run out of
power may not show up during a sweep, which means that the sweeper will
not be alerted to the surveillance.
