Covert Operations & Protective Surveillance (COPS) – San Jose, CA


December 4 @ 8:00 am - December 6 @ 5:00 pm

Course Overview

Modern protective operations (especially of a low visibility nature) often require judgment, discretion, and unique skills. Particularly, security personnel must possess the ability to perform surveillance in support of the principal, property, venues, or distinctive operational needs that may emerge. From corporate confidentiality to workplace violence to special events, the Protection Agent must be capable of becoming one with the environment, working with and disseminating information as part of a team, all while gathering data through the establishment of exploitable patterns. Training during the three-day COPS course will include surveillance theory & practice, types of surveillance applicable to protective services, fixed operations, mobile operations (foot & vehicular), counter-surveillance measures, surveillance detection, pre-attack surveillance case studies, protective surveillance, and multiple field training exercises. Over 70% of this program will entail performance-based practical application of the skills taught and lessons learned.
