Course Objectives

Randy has recognized the need to mitigate the growing trend of injuries and deaths related to targeted ambush/surprise encounters against law enforcement personnel and has developed a training program to counter those trends. These learned skill sets will dramatically enhance and improve the law enforcement officer’s Awareness and Threat Detection (ATD) capabilities. The training helps law enforcement officers thwart potential ambush situations and turn them from a disadvantage into a tactical advantage. It benefits officers during routine patrol, special events, traffic stops etc. and protects him/her from ambush-type situations. The training teaches officers methods to accurately assess violator/public contacts and gives the officer the ability to predict the potential for an encounter to escalate into a threatening event.

The program is designed to directly enhance the Law Enforcement personnel capabilities in advanced threat awareness skills and allows an aggressive approach to observe and identify booby traps, IED’s and threats in a multitude of environments through threat indicators that exist in the human and terrain atmosphere. The program teaches officers how to establish baselines in their environment and how to recognize certain anomalies that indicate potential threats through human behavior, body language and ground sign awareness.
