International Association of Undercover Officers

22nd Annual Covert Ops Training Seminar

August 7 - 11, 2017 - Las Vegas, NV

A new and advanced five day training program for law enforcement officers who supervise and participate in covert undercover investigations. The course is specifically designed to provide officers with a comprehensive knowledge of undercover techniques and methods they can employ to safely plan and manage covert investigations.  This program changes every year in our effort to bring you the latest information about covert operations. All of the presenters have been involved in covert operations for many years.

Who Should Attend This Course?

This advanced training is updated annually and designed for law enforcement officers who participate in undercover investigations. Managers who supervise such operations will find the course particularly focused on matters relating to their day to day activities.

Why Should I Attend This Course?

Officers who participate in covert operations are not born with the talents needed to perform effectively in undercover situations. These talents are developed from experience, hard work and training. You will learn the techniques and tactics necessary to compliment your present undercover experience. Many times this is what makes the difference between success or failure and safety or injury.
