Undercover Techniques and Survival
A New and Updated Five Day Training Program
Salem, OR - February 25 – March
Oregon Department of Public
Safety Standards and Training
Free lodging is available. See below.
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 that 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 develop or compliment their present
undercover experience. Many times this can make the difference between
success or failure and safety or injury and assist them in staying safe
while working undercover operations.
