Course Description
Raids for high risk narcotic warrants are extremely dangerous situations, and we can never be totally prepared for every eventuality in the fluid and dangerous environments in which we operate. This class presents a system for planning and preparing for high risk situations, teaching precautions that can be taken to insure the highest possible degree of safety while insuring the highest likelihood of success in our planned events. This class also presents scenario-based training, and how to give a structured briefing of planned events. The goal of this class is to impart to the officers the knowledge, techniques and the confidence needed to operate more safely and successfully during high risk planned counter narcotic operations.
