Tactical Surveillance

*Only credentialed Law Enforcement, Government Agencies and Military personnel may attend our Surveillance Classes

T III’s Tactical Surveillance Course is the culminating product of our years of real world military experience and training, as well as mission support to rural law enforcement operations. Law enforcement jurisdictions that are comprised of large chunks of rural and wooded terrain must be tactically proficient in such settings, and must be able to operate away from the comfort of their marked unit. Graduates of our Tactical Surveillance Course will leave our course capable of being able to properly execute all phases of a tactical surveillance operations, and ultimately provide their agency an asset that they previously lacked.

This is a “field craft” heavy class, but also provides the student with one of the best tactical planning classes they have ever been a part of. This class is highly recommended for any LEO that participates in serving rural high risk warrants, SWAT / SORT operations, all rural Sheriff’s Department’s, State Patrol narcotics investigators, and Sniper / Observer teams. This four day course will provide thorough instruction and practical application on the topics seen below.

The majority of this course is spent in the field training environment, rain or shine, as the finished product of this class is an LEO who is capable of performing as an all-weather tactical collection platform. Students will participate in numerous practical exercises and instructor led training events; the course culminates with a scenario based field training exercise.

It is recommended that agencies, or partnering agencies, send two or more LEO’s to attend this course together as the tactical surveillance mission is not one that is typically performed in a solo capacity. As with all T III courses, we can export this training to your agency’s doorstep as a cost effective means to provide maximum training opportunities to your personnel. Our mobile training teams (MTT) require minimal coordination and resources from you to provide what we call “flip the switch” training. Additionaly we can tailor any course to fit your needs.
