Course Description

Physical Surveillance is a core competency that must be exercised regularly to ensure mission success, personal security, and operational security.

In order to provide expert training, instructors must be knowledgeable in current tactics, techniques and procedures utilized in physical and technical surveillance activities from an offensive and defensive perspective. Our surveillance experts from law enforcement, the intelligence community, and special operations have decades of experience.This experience includes operators/operatives that have conducted successful surveillance against high value targets, maintained surveillance detection awareness against hostile surveillance activities, and are expert in operational tradecraft utilized by adversaries that include terrorists, foreign intelligence services, and criminals. Our subject matter experts have demonstrated their skills in both homeland and overseas operations and continue to demonstrate their expertise conducting real world operations.We provide the "right sized" number of instructors and role players that can vary from small packages for basic courses or refresher training to larger packages that will force the student to "live" with surveillance in a realistic scenario. LSI will customize a program that will exceed client's expectations. Further information is available upon request.
