Lock Picking and Lock Bypass Techniques for Police
and First Responders
About the Entry Course:
A few weeks after the United States was attacked by terrorists on September 11, 2001, The U.S. Customs Service conducted training for its agents in covert entry techniques. Customs routinely requires its agents to perform covert entries into buildings, aircraft hangars, aircraft, and other locked areas to install court-ordered listening and recording devices that will later be used in court cases against drug smugglers, terrorists, and other criminals.
This manual and the accompanying DVD are the result of that training, and are intended to serve as a training tool for other law enforcement officers, police departments, and first responders who must enter locked areas to perform their duties.
Although the information in this course was originally intended to provide
instruction in covert entries, the techniques apply equally well to many law enforcement
and public safety situations. Many police, fire, medical, and other emergency response
teams could better protect the public if one or more members of each team was an "entry
specialist," someone with knowledge and skill in opening and bypassing locks. This course
is aimed at training such specialists.
"The Tactical Lock Opening Course" is extremely useful and beneficial to Police, Ambulance, Fire, Private Detectives, Military, Undercover Drug Agents, SWAT Teams, Special Forces, CIA, FBI, DEA, NSA, NTA, US Customs and Border Patrol, Homeland Security, etc.,
Subjects Covered in this Course are:
- Lock Picking Techniques for Law Enforcement Personnel
- Lock bypass techniques
- Auto openings
- Instant padlock openings
- Specialized tools and equipment
- and much more
This unique training gives you the skills necessary to quickly and effectively pick locks, bypass locking systems, open automobiles, and gain entry into locked areas without damaging property or leaving any sign that might alert criminal suspects of your passing.
The Covert Entry Course was originally developed for federal agents who routinely perform covert entries for intelligence gathering, but the skills taught in the course are important tools for many other areas of law enforcement, including SWAT, investigations, and even routine patrol. The skills taught in the course are relevant to any situation where fast, no-damage entry is required.
The instructor is a former law enforcement officer and has trained thousands of civilian locksmiths. He developed the course to be easy to understand, interesting, and effective in the real world, where results count.
The course is designed for students with no previous locksmithing training and is easy to understand. You'll get a 100-page course manual that explains all the entry techniques step by step, with plenty of photos and drawings. Also, you'll get a 60-minute training video that shows the techniques in detail, including close-up video sequences with cut-away locks that show you what's happening inside the lock. Many segments of the video were taken from live training at a national law enforcement training center.
Every course is backed with the instructor's personal support, either by telephone or e-mail, to ensure that every student gets the most from this training. When you order the course, he'll be happy to answer your questions or help you with any special needs.
The following course overview will give you a detailed look at course contents and the subject areas covered. If you have any questions about the course, feel free to contact us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
