L.O.C.T. Associates, LLC provides specialized instruction in surreptitious & covert entry to law enforcement, government and military personnel. The training provided by L.O.C.T. Associates, LLC is designed to teach the skills, tactics and techniques required to surreptitiously & covertly conduct physical security system penetration. The techniques consist of lock picking, circumvention and/or bypassing in order to enter secure structures, containers and/or property. Our advanced course teaches techniques for high security locks and systems, as well as techniques to defeat and/or bypass security & burglar alarm systems.

This training course greatly benefits law enforcement, government and military personnel, such as: federal agents/Homeland Security personnel, patrol officers, detectives, SWAT & tactical operators, narcotics officers, probation & parole officers, fire/EMS first-responders, as well as military special forces members, etc. The subtle breaching techniques learned in this course can greatly benefit the following:

Sneak & peek warrants
Container Searches
SWAT operations & call-outs
Probation searches
Parole searches
Arrest warrants
Protest devices
Vehicle entries
Patrol calls for service
Access to secured areas
Narcotics investigations
Hostage rescue team staging
Establish 'fixed' surveillance posts
Counter-terrorism investigations
Police, Fire/EMS first-responders
Welfare checks
Security assessment of facilities and existing lock systems

The ability for law enforcement, government and military personnel to enter a secure location and leave undetected, is of paramount importance for sensitive investigations, such as major narcotics trafficking and/or terrorism. Officer safety and/or the element of surprise can also be increased, during tactical operations, by covertly gaining access to areas for SWAT & H.R.T. team staging, surveillance, entry preparation and sniper/observer positioning.

Aside from learning and practicing the skills used to defeat locks, this training also establishes a knowledge-based foundation for the student, which develops expertise. This expertise can be used to assist with investigating/identifying methods, tools and techniques criminals may also be utilizing; as well as identify weaknesses in existing security systems/devices.
