  Lock Picking & Specialized Entry Techniques

November 4 - 5, 2019

 

TCOLE # 3864 - Manual Breaching  (16 hours TCOLE Credit)
Patrol officers, investigators, probation and parole officers, narcotic officers, and tactical teams are often faced with the task of entering a building to serve search and arrest warrants, to carry out hostage rescues, or to conduct welfare checks on elderly persons or the reported victims of violence. Military special operations personnel have to resort to stealth entries to secrete themselves in hostile environments, to conduct sensitive building entries, and to place forward observers and precision shooters. Conservation officers are often required to access areas protected by padlocked gates. This course will introduce students to basic lock picking skills, as well as a variety of other options for lock bypassing beyond the conventional forced entry. Students will have an opportunity to develop new skills by picking more than 150 different training locks. In addition, important intelligence.

Each student will receive a syllabus which highlights the information presented during the training, their own lock pick set, and a list of suggested specialty tools. All equipment needed during the course will be provided.
