SURVEILLANCE - (2 hour lecture/discussion; 6 hour practical exercise; 2 hour critique)
In preparation for training in surveillance detection, students will be familiarized with various surveillance techniques. Vehicular and pedestrian mobile surveillance, static observation and course leg surveillance techniques are used by potential attackers, including terrorist organizations, who may be planning kidnapping or assassination attempts. A practical exercise is conducted that focuses on the conduct of surveillance and the attendant correlation of movement that will assist the student in recognizing common surveillance activity.

SURVEILLANCE DETECTION - (3 hour lecture/discussion)
Phases of planning for a kidnapping or assassination attempt will be identified and discussed so that the student will understand the dynamics of this kind of situation and will better understand how surveillance is used by the potential attacker to develop information. Factors pertaining to the identification of potential ambush sites will be identified and discussed. This will be followed by a discussion of how this information can be used by a surveillance detection team. Factors pertaining to correlation of movement, identification of surveillance operatives and selection of surveillance detection techniques will be identified and discussed. Factors pertaining to route and area reconnaissance, developing familiarity with the environment and choosing appropriate surveillance detection positions will be identified and discussed. Factors pertaining to conducting liaison and coordination with local law enforcement authorities will be identified and discussed. A decision making matrix will be presented and discussed that identifies the various courses of action available to individual executive protection agents suspecting that surveillance has been detected. Command and control techniques for a surveillance detection team will be identified and discussed. Factors pertaining to information gathering by surveillance detection agents and the correlation of that information will be identified and discussed.

PENETRATION TESTING CASE STUDIES - (1 hour lecture/discussion)
Surveillance can take more than one form. Penetration testing is sometimes conducted as a part of the terrorist planning cycle. Discussion centers on known instances of penetration testing being conducted so that the student can learn the analytical process involved in evaluating circumstantial evidence that penetration testing is being conducted and what to do about it.

SURVEILLANCE DETECTION CASE STUDIES - (5 hour lecture/discussion)
Case studies of known surveillance detection successes are briefed and examined. The student is familiarized with methodology and analytical skills necessary in attempting to determine how surveillance detection teams can be successful in their effort.

PRACTICAL EXERCISE PLANNING - (1 hour planning session)
Operational guidance, briefings and preparation planning session to support an executive protection operation with surveillance detection efforts is conducted. Students will be briefed on the principal’s itinerary and will have opportunity to organize a surveillance detection effort in support of the protective operation.

SURVEILLANCE DETECTION - (8 hour practical exercise/2 hour critique)
A scenario based surveillance detection exercise is present for the student to participate in. The practical exercise activity will be critiqued at the conclusion of the exercise.
