5-Day ”Undercover Techniques and Survival” for narcotics, vice, intelligence, gang and internal affairs investigators

Attendees: This course is designed forUndercover and Plainclothes Officers/Detectives/Agents/Supervisorsassigned to Narcotics, Gangs, Intelligence, Internal Affairs, Vice, Human Trafficking, or Specialized Units.

Course Description: This 5-day (36 hour) training has been designed to complement the experienced undercover officer as well as bring a "new" undercover up to a level of awareness, safety and knowledge that is required of those seasoned undercovers. This "pay it forward" type of training has come from 20 years of instruction and 25 years of experience. Having trained over 12,000 undercover personnel Internationally and Nationally, Instructor Dave Redemann learned early in his teaching career that even though he was blessed to have a wide array of undercover experience and knowledge, he couldn't obtain the knowledge of more than 12,000 undercocvers on his own. Through the years of dedication and hard work, Dave has earned the respect and trust of these undercover officers and agents who have "paid forward" their special events, situation, and experiences good and bad. A large number of those experiences and events are captured and recorded in interviews that Dave uses as examples along with his experiences to help make the dangerous job of undercover work safer and more professional. His goal is to provide the information to others in an effort to make sure every undercover officer gets home to their loved ones each and every night. Dave's training is updated with the most current and relevant information each and every time it is instructed.

The training covers: Effective recruitment and utilization of informants, identifying safety considerations and unique problems associated with undercover work, addressing the psychological challenges of undercover work, identifying difficult undercover situations and demonstrating methods to resolve them, understanding prosecutorial guidelines, regulations and entrapment issues, discussing risk management of undercover operations, examine key issues in the supervision of undercover units and personnel, demonstrating techniques for infiltration of certain criminal organizations, identifying and demonstrating briefing and debriefing technique and explaining the unique issues associated with women in undercover work.

Instructor: Dave’s twenty-five years undercover experience includes, but is not limited to, the following: vice, narcotics, organized crime, white supremacy groups, militia groups, Mexican drug trafficking organizations, outlaw motorcycle gangs, and assisting Federal Bureau of Investigations(FBI) undercover personnel on an international terror case. A large portion of Dave’s cases involved long term infiltrations of criminal organizations lasting up to four years. Dave was tasked with infiltrating an Outlaw Motorcycle Gang. This assignment lasted for almost 4 years. Dave has spent roughly ten years of his undercover career living with the criminals he was investigating. While working undercover, Dave has purchased most levels of numerous types of narcotics, stolen vehicles, stolen property, guns, fully automatic guns, explosives, and hand grenades. Dave created and teaches at the Washington State Undercover School (since 1997) teaches at the F.B.I. undercover school (since 1997), Pennsylvania State Police "Top Gun" undercover school (since 2013), Midwest Counter Drug Training Center (since 2010) and additional military, federal, state and local agencies and organizations around the country and world.

Overall great school! The scenario’s made me much more comfortable in any undercover role. I will recommend the school to anyone who does or supervises undercover officers. I learned something of value in every scenario.

Hands down – the best training I have ever had. I wish it was longer and even more advanced classes to pick up where this left off. Matt Ledford
