Intro to Drug Interdiction / Criminal Patrol Operations

COURSE DESCRIPTION:  Drug Interdiction / Criminal Patrol Operations are an essential proactive law enforcement function.  Organized crime, terrorist acts, murder, theft, fraud, and drug smuggling all have one thing in common: Mobility.   Every day criminals attempt to travel to and from the scene of their crime undetected.  Fugitives from justice go through great lengths to avoid capture and prosecution.  Within this course we explore techniques in drug interdiction / criminal patrol operations designed to expose criminals in transit using proven investigative methods, interview tactics, and sign cutting.  This course was developed to provide the officer with the basic tactics, techniques, and procedures to begin interdicting criminal activity in progress.
