This is a five day (36 hour) training program designed for Law Enforcement Investigators, Vice Insetigators, Narcotics Investigators, Gang Investigators, Fraud Detectives, Organized Crime Investigators, Criminal Analysts, and Patrol Officers.  

Prostitution and Narcotics activity are every day problems that affect entire cities across the country.  The curriculum will cover how to successfully conduct both Vice and Narcotics investigations.  This training will detail how to conduct undercover operations on masssage parlors associated with prostitution and on Escort Agencies providing prostitution services.  

The goal of this training course is to show investigators how to include a thorough investigation from making arrests, closing down businesses and how to conduct financial investigations on these illegal businesses. Instructors will detail the “Sneak and Peek” search warrant concept which can be utilized to infiltrate massage parlors as well as on Mariujuana grow houses and other businesses associated with Organized Crimes.  Case studies on these operations which require covert entries and installment of equipment will be presented.  

The Tactical Narcotics Techniques program will be presented which shows investigators how to set up operations targeting street level narcotics subjects and street level prostitution subbjects.  The TNT concept can be utilized to make as many as 100 arrests in a single shift if ran properly.

Investigators will learn how Fraud Investigations on subjects involved in narcotics trafficking and gang activities can be initiated and how to charge these individuals on both state and federal levels.  This portion of the training is taught by law enforcement officers who specialized in targeting street level subjects who are now making millions of dollars each year through fraud investigations. Subjects are using illicit funds obtained through fraud to further narcotics and gang activity.  The instructors for this training have been featured on CNN and FOX News Business for their expertise in conducting street level fraud investigations.

Narcotics Reverse Sting Operations for both street level subjects and high level narcotics stings targeting major players in Drug Trafficking Organizations will be presented in great detail.  Case studies involving both long term street level operations and major narcotics cases which have resulted in the seizure of millions of dollars will be presented.  Narcotics reverse stings should be the number one tool in targeting DTO’ subjects.  

Undercover Strip Club investigations will be covered during the training. Adult entertainment clubs have long been known for prostitution, narcotics activity and money laundering.  This segment of training will show investigators how to conduct long investigations on these establishments and how to safely plan and initiate tactical raids on these locations.  

Undercover Decoy officer safety issues will be covered in great detail. Officer safety should be the number one concern when conducting vice and narcotics operations, however many agencies neglect to provide training to decoy officers.  A large number of agencies use patrol officers as decoys but provide no training to the officers.  This presents a tremendous officer safety issue to the officers as well as a high liability danger to the agencies. Undercover Hotel/Motel Prostitution stings and undercover officer techniques will be covered using case studies and actual undercover videos. Human trafficking investigations and case studies will be presented along with how to successfully prosecute subjects in state and federal court.
