A New and Updated Five Day Training Program 
October 16 - 20, 2017
Dallas/Ft. Worth (Garland), TX

A five day (36 hours) training program designed for law enforcement officers who are beginning to work vice investigations or have worked vice for some time.  The basic portion of the course will be essential for newer vice officers and definitely provide veterans with a solid reminder of important principles of working vice and human trafficking investigations.  The course will move into advanced techniques and audio/video surveillance techniques that are rapidly changing with the introduction of new technology.  The tactical portion of the classroom instruction will definitely impact all officers and assist them in keeping themselves safe while working vice operations.

Officers who participate in covert operations are not born with the talents needed to perform effectively and safely in undercover situations. These talents are developed from experience, hard work and training. This program will provide officers with the techniques and survival tactics necessary to to develop or compliment their present undercover experience. Many times this can make the difference between success or failure and safety or injury.


DAVE REDEMANN - Detective, Seattle Police Department.  Dave is assigned to a special undercover unit.  Dave has worked two long term deep cover undercover operations for federal agencies, one of which was 4 years in duration.  Dave has been involved in undercover operations most of his 23 years of law enforcement experience.  He designed and presents an 80 hour Basic and Advanced Undercover School for the State of Washington and Seattle Police Department, where he developed his reputation as a skilled instructor.

IAN POLHEMUS - Ian has been a member of the Seattle Police Department since 1992, serving his first ten years in patrol, including six years as a field training officer.  In 2002, Ian was reassigned to the Metropolitan Division where he served the next five years as a patrol canine handler with his partner, police dog Kaiser.  In November 2007, Ian was assigned to the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICACTF) where he was responsible for the investigation of crimes relating to online child sexual exploitation.  In August 2015, and having had enough of child sexual exploitation cases, Ian returned to his K9 roots and was selected to handle SPD's first Electronic Storage Detection K9.  Following the investigation and subsequent arrest of Subway pitchman Jared Fogle, with the assistance of a black lab named "Bear", Ian reached out to the trainer and initiated a plan to purchase Bear and bring him back to Seattle.  Since September of 2015, Ian and Bear have continued to support the ICACTF where they focus on assisting investigators in the recovery of digital evidence that might otherwise have gone undetected, but for the power of the canine nose!

BILL GUYER - Bill graduated from Washington State University with a BA in Criminal Justice.  He has over 30 years of law enforcement experience.  He has been in his current assignment as a Vice Detective with the Seattle Police Department for the last 11 years.  Bill has been the undercover detective in over 200 Vice related cases ranging from escorts, track work, massage parlors and adult entertainment clubs.  Bill has been the lead or secondary detective in over 100 promoting prostitution cases both adult and juvenile.  Bill is also an instructor with the City of Seattle "John School".  He has been the lead instructor at the numerous law enforcement and community trainings.
