Course Description:

This course focuses on the tactical techniques of high-risk warrant service. Through demonstration and practical application, students use a high-risk entry facility to practice entry, search, and extraction techniques taught throughout the course from decision-making through warrant execution. Students will also learn vehicle stops involving narcotics, undercover extractions, and tactical team management.

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

  1. Complete a high-risk narcotics vehicle stop using vehicles and techniques learned in class.
  2. Plan and conduct a warrant service briefing for a consensual or dynamic entry for the purpose of searching for and finding a perpetrator to serve a warrant.
  3. Perform the functions and duties of a team leader during the course of a consensual entry and a dynamic entry, using a team of seven to nine officers and entry equipment to search and extract one to three perpetrators from a building simulating living quarters, using entry equipment, simunitions, a bunker, and techniques learned in class.
  4. Students will properly learn how to use team placement and specialized equipment to effec- tively neutralize an armed perpetrator in closed quarters.
  5. Assume a tactical mindset as taught in class and use the principles in the decision-making process during the course of high-risk warrant execution scenarios.
