Charlie Fuller & Dave Redemann's

Advanced Undercover Techniques and Survival
A New and Updated Five Day Training Program 

May 12 - 16, 2014
Edmonton, AB, Canada

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 which 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 to develop or compliment their present undercover experience. Many times this can make the difference between success or failure and safety or injury.


CHARLIE FULLER - Retired Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms Special Agent. Charlie has 27 years of law enforcement experience with expertise in undercover, electronic surveillance and training. He was a Program Manager at the ATF National Academy for six years. He was responsible for the Undercover and Field Operations Training Programs. He is the author of The Art of Undercover: Techniques and Survival, a complete "how to" work undercover textbook. Charlie currently presents undercover, electronic surveillance, physical surveillance and high risk entry tactics training programs nationwide.

DAVE REDEMANN - Detective, Seattle Police Department. Dave is assigned to a special undercover unit. Dave has worked numerous long term “deep cover” undercover operations for federal agencies, one of which was 4 years in duration, and another was a year-long “Storefront” operation. Dave has been involved in undercover operations most of his 28 years of law enforcement experience. He designed and presents an 80 hour Basic and Advanced Undercover School for the State of Washington and Seattle Police Department, where he developed his reputation as a skilled instructor. He also instructs a 4-day “practical” Surveillance School, and a 2-Day “hands on” Undercover Defensive Tactics School for the International Association of Undercover Officers.
