The Tactical Training for Undercover Teams is a

program, students will plan and execute a series of tactical operations
to include: “buy bust” operations, “reverse” operations, undercover
rescue and vehicle
takedowns/assaults. The class will conclude in the planning and
execution of a “multi-kilo drug bust” in which the students will be
graded. This training will be especially useful to officers who
routinely support their undercover officers in responding to help the
undercover or to simply arrest the suspect. The training will also
cover the various aspects of “take downs” utilized in Vice and Human
Trafficking Operations. Students attending the class are asked to bring
gear” and “undercover” clothing.

Chief William ”Buck” Johnson - Assistant Chief “Buck” Johnson is a twenty-five
year veteran with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office (JSO) with over 21
years of Tactical and High Liability Training. Buck began his career
with Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office as patrol officer in 1993 was
selected to the JSO SWAT team and assigned to the Career Criminal Unit.
As a detective with the Career Criminal Unit, Buck was tasked with the
tracking and apprehension of fugitives and career felons. As a member of
the SWAT team, Buck held many positions to include SWAT Operator,
Sniper, Sniper Team Leader, and SWAT Team Leader.
In 2001, Buck was promoted to sergeant and returned to the Patrol
Division for a short period of time. Due to Buck’s training and
experience, he was reassigned to the Narcotics Division, as the Tactical
Narcotics Team leader. As a member of the narcotics unit, Buck was
quickly exposed to the unique and inherent dangers prevalent in
undercover operations, in addition to the lack of tactical training.
Buck identified this glaring officer safety issue and made steps to
correct it. Utilizing his SWAT training and his knowledge of tactics,
Buck Johnson and Guy Daniels began developing high-risk narcotics based
training narcotics tact teams. The tactics that were developed are still
utilized today throughout the division and have been credited with
directly saving several undercover officers lives. Chief Johnson served
with the 101st Airborne Division.
