Happy 2019! Our 16th Year!

2019 is going to be a great year! We are excited to start our 16th year of Law Enforcement training.

When Tim Lewis began this adventure, he created a new style of training, pulling from his years of athletics and law enforcement experience. This includes hands-on training in the field.

It’s been very successful and we are grateful to God and all the agencies who have made it possible to bring what we love doing best to your departments.

Awesome Trip to Medford, OR Region

Thank you, Oregon State Police!

Earlier this month, we had the privilege of training in Central Point, OR at the Oregon State Police station. We are very grateful to those who arranged this and made it possible.

This was our first training in the Medford region and we had a wonderful time with the law enforcement professionals who attended.

This truly was a great bunch of guys and they performed very well as a team during Rolling Surveillance field exercises.

It was our pleasure when many of them came up at the end and shook our hands and thanked us for bringing this class to them.   We hope to be back soon!

In Addition to Law Enforcement Training

Flowering-Cherry-Trees-in-Central-Point-Medford-ORIt was a lovely drive to and from this Rolling Surveillance class.

Oregon is full of breathtaking scenery.

Many streets were lined with flowering trees and in the background, the mountains were all capped with snow. The ornamental cherry trees were all in blossom, as were many pear trees.

We also were able to taste test and buy some of the best cheese, mead, honey, and pears while visiting Oregon.

Sweeping for Tracking Devices

In our law enforcement training classes we teach that suspects often exhibit behavior consistent with counter-surveillance techniques or technical surveillance countermeasures, such as using debuggers to sweep for trackers or electronic eavesdropping devices. This being only one of many counter-surveillance techniques, but one we must prepare for during surveillance.

On the Discovery Channel’s Moonshiner’s series, we see this in action. This video will turn right side up when started. 🙂

Classes per a year are less than years previous to 2014, as our founder/instructor – Tim Lewis – has limited availability to teach. He had planned retirement a couple of years ago, but the law enforcement community requested that Tim continue bringing his expertise to the classroom and his hands-on, in the field training approach. As previous students know, one cannot beat Tim’s enthusiasm, passion, knowledge, and hands-on training style in these courses.

Our hands-on (both classroom and field training) courses for the upcoming year include:

  • Rolling Surveillance, which is also known as physical or mobile surveillance.
  • Rolling Surveillance II, our advanced foot surveillance.
  • Chop Shop – Auto Theft Investigations and Criminal Sophistication, gaining knowledge and experience needed to bust auto theft rings.
