If you are part of an activist group and your group is about to take part in an undercover operation in order to create awareness about an issue within a certain company or industry, you will first need to make some solid plans because undercover operations can be dangerous. Depending on the type of undercover operation you are doing, the levels of safety and the kinds of tools you need might vary.
Special equipment that you might need
If you are planning on making video footage of that you see or if you are planning on getting voice recordings, you might need to get some special equipment. If you think that you might not be allowed in to the place, you might even want to consider using a camera drone that you can send in to the place in order to capture footage but you will need to make sure that you keep it out of view because if your drone gets caught you will be in a lot of trouble.If you have some money to invest in your undercover operation and you want to buy a brand new drone, you could consider buying a phantom drone which is great because it might not be seen the way a regular drone will be and it also has some great features. You will need to find a drone that can be sent around the place secretly and without attracting too much attention.
When doing an undercover investigation, it is important that you and your team study the dangers of doing something like this and find out what the legality is and the risks are. With certain things such as a visit to a dairy farm to investigate cruelty, you could literally be putting your life in danger because an expose like that could lose a lot of money for a lot of people which is why you will have to be extremely careful. However, if you are doing something such as going undercover to your own office to find out how the employees are working, there will be no immediate danger but you will have to be careful to have a very good disguise because your employees may recognize you. It is vital that you do all the research that you need to do before going in so that you know where to go, what to look for and who you will need to speak to. Undercover investigations are very common with animal rights activists to uncover the cruelty in slaughterhouses.
