Jahnke, Jason
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 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. NOTE: This course is not a scouting course, we will make assumptions that the scout has been completed and has provided you the information needed to develop a tactical plan. This course is not a tactics course. We will dictate various tactics to use on some missions to demonstrate the flexibility of the briefing process.

This 2-day offering is the standard NTOA Tactical Mission Planning and Briefing course. Attendees must attend both days. Registration is limited to 32 students.
