Covert entry training specialists

L.O.C.T. Associates, LLC provides specialized instruction in our Surreptitious & Covert Entry Specialist Training Courses 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 by-passing 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.
