Mexican Drug Cartel Investigations-Fall 2017

Methuen, MA

Apply for Training
3 Seats Remaining

 UPDATE

New Sponsor!  Same instructors! NO Fee for this course!

(2 Days)

About the Training: Sponsored by Northeast Counterdrug Training Center (NCTC)

Mexican Drug Trafficking Organizations are impacting communities in nearly every city in the United States. This problem can no longer be viewed as a “Border Issue.” The majority of the drugs distributed and consumed in the U.S. originate in Mexico. The Cartel leaders have strategically formed relationships with American Street gangs to flood the streets with illicit drugs.

The smuggling routes utilized by the Cartels do not stop once the drugs make it across the U.S./Mexican Border. That is simply the first step. It is important for local law enforcement officers to understand the precise smuggling routes of drugs entering their cities; however, it is paramount that officers learn to identify the methods used by the cartels to distribute drugs in their communities.




T
his training course will teach local law enforcement officers how to identify, target, infiltrate, and prosecute Mexican Drug Trafficking Organizations operating in their cities. All police officers, regardless of assignment, will benefit from this training. Gaining a true understanding of the “Drug Trafficking Pyramid” will lead to more arrests as well as larger seizures of drugs, currency, and assets.

Topics include:

Structure of Mexican Drug Cartels

Mexican Drug Cartels’ Connection to American Street Gangs & Local Drug Dealers

Understanding the “Drug Trafficking Pyramid”

Identification Local Smuggling Routes

Concealment Methods

Counter-surveillance Techniques

Cultivating High-level Informants

Techniques to Infiltrate the Cartels

Practical Wiretap Investigations to Dismantle Cartel Distribution Cells

Aggressive Tactics to Combat the Violence

Case studies of classic “Cartel Hits” in America

Fentanyl-The most deadly illicit drug problem in America

Los Angeles, CA

Download Flyer

Online!  Watch the Live Stream from your office or home!
Fee- $40.00

About the training:

Fentanyl can kill you. It is 40 to 50 times stronger than street-level heroin and can

be found in just about any city in America. A very small amount ingested or absorbed

trough the skin can be deadly. It is a real threat to American Law Enforcement.

Fentanyl is responsible for an epidemic of overdose deaths within the

United States.

Fentanyl, the latest iteration of designer drug was created through legitimate

research. Like so many other pharmaceuticals, Fentanyl was diverted for illicit

use. But it did not stop there. Dirty chemists took it to the next level. Just like

Bath Salts and Spice, Fentanyl is now continually evolving to circumvent the law.

Just like Bath Salts and Spice, Fentanyl's unpredictable inconsistent make up creates

dangers for first responders in terms of fatal exposure. Canine units are particularly

at risk of immediate death from inhaling fentanyl. The onset of adverse

health effects, such as disorientation, coughing, sedation, respiratory distress or

cardiac arrest is very rapid and profound, usually occurring within minutes of exposure.

Leading High Adventure Assignments-High performance teams & what it takes to lead them

Los Angeles, CA

Download Flyer

Online!  Watch the Live Stream from your office or home!
Fee- $60.00

About the training:

High adventure assignments are those that are viewed as challenging and often hazardous.

The personnel are nearly always volunteers who are highly creative, skilled and motivated.

Leaders in these assignments often find themselves supervising and managing

people who know more than they do. Conventional incentives, such as promotion and

higher pay are not as attractive to these employees as opposed to personal fulfillment,

excitement and comradery. Understandably, established management techniques are

often ineffective. How do you demand 100% effort while at the same time recognizing it

as unattainable? How do you encourage initiative and ingenuity while at the same time

insisting on adherence to established policy and protocols? How do you punish error in

an outstanding employee who rarely, if ever, fails? This course is designed to provide

insight and understanding, as well as tried and true techniques for those who find themselves

leading teams of "all stars."

you can't recognize a hazard, you can't protect yourself"

enter residences (i.e. search warrants, probation checks) and conduct investigations.

This course is extremely important for Law Enforcement and Public Safety

professionals who have frequent contacts with narcotic abusers or conduct investigations

regarding distribution. The course primarily addresses officer safety

and hazard assessment.

Informant Development and Management Manage informants that result in successful investigations

Los Angeles, CA

Download Flyer

Online!  Watch the Live Stream from your office or home!
Fee- $80.00

About the training:

The law enforcement mission has changed dramatically over the past few years. Informants quite often play a significant role in law enforcement investigations. Having a person in the "belly of the beast" that can provide you with details about how individual criminals and criminal organizations operategreatly helps in developing strategies to stop their criminal activities. Having someone who on occasion can introduce undercover officers into criminal groups also is of great value.

For all their value, informants can also be an officer's worst nightmare. Using people who more often than not have criminal backgrounds, who have their own agendas and who are highly motivated to make money or stay out of jail, the informant minefield must be navigated carefully. By learning the most common problems, applicable laws, and techniques to keep informants under control, they can be used successfully and be a valuable and useful tool.

Reid Interview & Advanced Interrogation-2018

Tewksbury, MA

Download Flyer

The Reid Technique of Interviewing and Interrogation is a systematic, common-sense approach to a successful interrogation developed by John E. Reid and Associates through extensive research and practical experience over the past 67 years. You can spend years trying to develop the skills and know-how on your own or you can attend their outstanding seminar. Most good interrogators can’t tell you why they are able to identify the guilty or obtain confessions, because they are relying on a “sixth sense” or “gut feeling.” Let them convert your “hunch” into an understandable and objective technique.

 



Seminar Fee: $575 per person - 4 Days
