Tactical Training for Narcotics/Vice Units
A Four Day Classroom and Scenario Based Training Program
Daytona Beach, FL   April 16 - 19, 2018

Program Description

The Tactical Training for Undercover Teams is a four-day (32 hours) training program focusing on the enforcement side of undercover operations.  This entry-level class is designed for narcotics officers, patrol officers and other law enforcement personnel who participate or assist in high-risk related operations.  During this 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 both “tactical gear” and “undercover” clothing.
No Weapons or Live Ammo Permitted in the Class or Practical Exercises.
Attendance is limited.  Register early to insure your attendance.

Guy Daniels - Det. Guy Daniels is a seventeen year veteran with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, with over fifteen years’ experience as a narcotics detective. Guy started his narcotics career with street-level tactical units where he participated in several hundred undercover operations over a fifteen-year narcotics career. During this time, he participated in several long-term undercover operations and was asked to join the DEA as a task force officer. Guy is a member of the Clandestine Laboratory Entrance Team as a certified site safety officer and is tasked with Meth related training for the department.
In 2007, Guy started S.W.A.N. Tactical Training as an organization specializing in narcotics based training for state and federal law enforcement. Since 2007, Guy has developed and instructed multiple classes related to narcotics and undercover techniques throughout the United States for State and Federal agencies to include; the U.S. Army, Drug Enforcement Administration, Nevada and Florida HITDA, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Florida Narcotics Officers Association and the Annual Covert Operations Training Conference (Las Vegas, NV).

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.

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.
