There has been a
growing concern for Undercover Officer Safety. Three undercover
officers have been killed in the last few years and numerous
officers have been assaulted and or shot. Due to the enormous amount
of requests by undercover personnel to expand the “hands on”
Undercover Defensive Tactics class in the Charlie Fuller and Dave Redemann’s
Advanced Undercover Techniques & Survival training
program, we have created a 2 1/2 day “hands on” course called The
Undercover Edge - Defensive Tactics with an Offensive Advantage.
A 2 1/2 day (20 hours) physically challenging training program
designed for law enforcement officers who routinely work undercover.
The class has one day of “Undercover Survival” in the
classroom and 1 1/2 days of “hands on” practical training on mats and
in vehicles. The classroom portion teaches the student how to
mentally and physically prepare to survive a “life threatening”
attack while working undercover.
All of the “hands on” training is done in the most realistic
training environment possible, and the course was developed by
highly experienced undercover officers, many who have experienced
first hand violent physical assaults while working undercover. The
creation of this program is the result of consultation with hundreds
of undercover officers who have experienced some sort of “physical
assault” while working undercover.
Please note: While all
precautions will be made for safety, it is “hands on” practical
training so each student must be aware of the inherent risk of
injury while participating in this “hands on” portion of the course.
Should a student choose to participate in the training, it will be
at their own risk and they and their immediate supervisor will be
required to sign the Training Injury Waiver which will be provided
via email after the student has registered.
