Course Description: This is a full-length tactical tracking operations course targeting law enforcement special operations personnel & officers assigned to remote patrol locations. Tracking an armed subject is the most dangerous operation law enforcement is called to deal with, where the suspect has all the tactical advantages.

This course will give officers the skills needed to track a subject through moderate terrain in the safest manner possible, and deal with actions on contact.
