Tactical Mission Planning and Briefing

This course is designed to expose police personnel (supervisors, tactical and task force team leaders, detectives, etc.) to procedures used for tactical mission planning and briefing of involved tactical personnel. Topics include mission planning documentation; operational planning for high-risk search warrants; scouting procedures for mission planning; primary, alternate, contingency, and emergency planning; suggestions on how to modify high-risk search warrant planning to other types of tactical missions (open area operations, barricaded subjects, arrest warrant/fugitive apprehension, and hostage barricade situations); and much more. Ensuring that a comprehensive but efficient briefing system is in place will be a course outcome.
