Improved surveillance techniques will establish avenues for increased readiness and threat mitigation in operational areas such as; Narcotics Related Warrants and Arrests, Fugitive Apprehension and Dignitary Protection. This course will focus on the basic principles of surveillance techniques and working to incorporate those principles into SWAT operations. There will be 8 hours dedicated to Vehicle Take Down and Assault operations.
