If you or your officers are involved in the execution of warrants, you are conducting one of the most hazardous high-risk duties performed in law enforcement today. Because of the inherent risks associated with these operations – including predatory suspects, improvised explosive devices (IED’s) and drug manufacturing dangers – you must be trained and experienced to minimize the risks to yourself, the suspects, bystanders and your agency.
This course will supply you with the skills and information necessary to conduct high risk warrant services from start to finish as safely as possible.
In addition to minimal classroom presentation, you will participate in a variety of practical "hands-on" force-on-force exercises including actual door breaches and dynamic suspect/drug environments using simunitions and paintballs.
