Identifying gaps in situational awareness, security, and special operations training often missed during basic officer training, this book introduces the field of protective services. Drawing on the experience of a seasoned professional with over two decades of combined military, SWAT, law enforcement, and field experience, it examines issues specific to carrying out protective special operations a " including weapon and equipment use, vehicle modifications, threat assessments, site surveys, counterintelligence concepts, operation security (OPSEC), and dealing with the compromise of security. The text discusses the difference between overt and covert operations and offers methods of surveillance detection.

From the Publisher:

Protective Operations: A Handbook for Security and Law Enforcement is designed as a reference for law enforcement and security organizations tasked with protecting the welfare of an individual or groups of individuals. To be effective and professional, protective operations require the incorporation of a variety of skill sets. However, many departments and jurisdictions have only limited resources and training available. Filling this void, the book identifies issues particular to local law enforcement ? and the private security teams that may be called in later ? and offers suggestions and guidance for confronting high-threat scenarios as well as the more mundane protective details.


  • Details the essence of local law enforcement protective operations that are run, in large part, covertly
  • Examines threat assessment from both hostile organizations and unknown adversaries
  • Provides a solid understanding of operational security, situational awareness, and surveillance detection
  • Includes examples from real-world attacks occurring over the past sixty years
  • Reinforces the need for training in specific tactics and techniques
  • Emphasizes training for confronting the adversary
  • Focuses on the economics of providing the most protection for the least cost
  • Addresses issues surrounding possible direct violations of the law and department policy and procedures

The author?s decades of training, research, and experience provide invaluable tested and proven protocols for keeping subjects safe in a hostile environment.
