Anytime you open a news website or turn on the TV, there seems to be a new manhunt in the headlines. Regardless of your agency, there is a decent chance you could find yourself in a manhunt in a woodland environment.

With the latest prison fugitives or a suspect on the run, the skills needed to safely track through a wooded area requires new skill sets.

Pat Patten is the owner and lead instructor at Tactical Woodland Operations School http://www.woodlandoperations.com/index.html

In this episode you’ll learn the common mistake in tracking operations as well as the mistakes made in gear selection.

Check out Pat’s calendar of training. He’s a real advocate of the patrol officer with their feet on the ground.

Few skills are more important to a law enforcement officer than those of interview and interrogation. Louis C. Senese, Vice President of John E. Reid & Associates, joins today’s podcast.

 

Lou, who has conducted more than 8,000 interviews in his career with Reid & Associates, shares some of the common missteps officers make during interrogations. I’m guilty of a couple of these myself.
