Surveillance : noun

Etymology : French, from surveiller to watch over, from sur- + veiller to watch.

Surveillance is simply, as you can see, literally the observation of a person or persons, location, or an item. It is carried out to determine unequivocally what the person is doing, who is entering or leaving a location or what is happening to an item. Surveillance can be carried out by overt means for example, CCTV cameras or, covertly by the use of electronic devices such as listening devices and also by the use of covert human intelligence operators.
