Advanced Undercover Techniques and Survival
This course is hosted by the Puyallup Police Department.
A five-day (36 hours) training program designed for law enforcement officers who are beginning to work undercover or have worked undercover for some time. The basic portion of the course will be essential for newer undercover officers and definitely provide veterans with a solid reminder of important principles of working undercover. The course will move into advanced undercover techniques and audio/video surveillance techniques that are rapidly changing with the introduction of new technology. The “survival” portion of the classroom instruction will definitely impact all undercover officers and assist them in keeping themselves safe while working in undercover operations. Officers who participate in covert operations are not born with the talents needed to perform effectively and safely in undercover situations. These talents are developed from experience, hard work and training. This program will provide officers with the techniques and survival tactics necessary to develop or compliment their present undercover experience. Often this can make the difference between success or failure and safety or injury and assist them in staying safe while working undercover operations.
