Surveillance Training

ProFirst Training | Surveillance Training Courses in The USA

This course is one of the most comprehensive physical surveillance training programs in the nation. The training is divided into both classroom training and field exercises. Law enforcement officers are often put in a position that requires them to conduct physical surveillance, often with little to no training. This can compromise officer safety, but it can also jeopardize an investigation. We prepare the student to work in a team environment, conducting fixed and moving surveillance with a vehicle and while on foot.

This class is limited to 16 students and is taught by multiple instructors who have extensive task force experience with an emphasis on surveillance and gathering evidence for search warrants. Students will be supervised while learning in the classroom, as well as urban and rural areas in the Nashville area. Instruction times will include one evening /night during the week.

Training topics will include:

  • Fundamentals of conducting surveillance

  • Fixed vs. moving surveillance

  • GPS monitoring and warrants

  • Equipment familiarization (GPS, night vision, communication, video)

  • Documentation

  • Risk vs benefit

  • Working as part of a team

  • Assuming the role of case agent

  • Officer safety

Upon completion, students will be prepared to conduct a fixed or moving surveillance working alone or as part of a surveillance  team. This is excellent training for the new detective or for a newly assigned task force officer. This is a four day class. Cost $725
