Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
I would like to request information regarding the surveillance taken whilst investigating a fraud case.
More specifically, what are the guidelines for officers working on these cases?
Are there any restrictions to where a person can or can't be filmed. For example, could someone be filmed inside of a hospital or care home?
When surveillance is being carried out, what is the timeframe for it? Are there any rules about it being on consecutive days, for example?
