Winslow, Charles
High-Risk Manhunt Operations

One of the most dangerous operations a SWAT team may be tasked with is searching for an armed fugitive in a rural environment. This seminar will define when a manhunt becomes high risk and why that should trigger a SWAT response.
Specialized equipment and training considerations, as well as tactics to facilitate a fugitive's capture, will be identified. The presentation includes overviews on visual and K9 tracking assets, and how to integrate both into a high-risk manhunt incident. Incident command and personnel deployment issues unique to manhunts will be reviewed. The material will be presented using a combination of lecture, some officer activities and a short table-top problem.
