Turkish term or phrase:iştakipçiliği
I believe this word is used to mean a kind of corruption, though I'm not sure exactly how to translate it into English. So, I was very surprised to find it advertised as a service by an estate agent!
Explanation: a guard dog; a person or organization that monitors the behavior of others (individuals, corporations, governments) to discover unscrupulous activity
Yes, it is really related with corruption, it is public oversight over authorities so that they do not get into corruption.
in Tureng (the english turkish dictionary) watchdog is defined in this way: http://www.tureng.com/default.aspx?keyword=watchdog&m=3
so it is very much related with corruption.
So I think this kind of services may be rendered by some agencies, too I mean oversight activities.
