LE/MIL Courses

5 Day Law Enforcement Protective Operations

This course aims to provide Law Enforcement with the basic and fundamental close protection skills to successfully perform their duty as a primary protection team or to supplement a visiting team.Learn More

AGS recognizes more and more Law Enforcement and LE specialty units are being tasked with close protection. SWAT teams all across the country have “Executive Protection” listed in their SOP’s as a capability, but rarely if ever receive close protection training. Our goal is to bridge that gap with our program that is designed to cover the skills and procedures required to provide effective close protection. With civil unrest happening more and more in our communities, Law Enforcement are being asked to provide various levels of protection for city officials, executives, visiting foreign government officials, celebrities and other target groups who may be at risk. We offer a program and training curriculum that incorporates how Law Enforcement agencies can both supplement protection details that visit their communities, as well as organize a close protection detail as requested by their agencies executives.

Low Visibility Handgun Operations

This course is designed for plain clothes and/or undercover officers who are operating in a low profile capacity. Learn More

In this course we review the challenges and advantages officers face when choosing to carry concealed to maintain a low signature. AGS knows it’s not often LE departments are conducting separate firearms drills and practical exercises for officers not wearing a conventional uniform. Our goal is to create a better understanding of handgun deployment from a concealed carry position in a variety of environments the UC and plain clothes officer operates in on a daily basis. Course topics include holster types/configurations, on body holster placement, low visibility LE operations, drawing from concealment (standing/seated), positional shooting, low visibility clothing, low visibility vehicle operations, working in and around vehicles (the UC and plain clothes officer’s office) and counter ambush (while on surveillance).

3 Day Manual/Mechanical, Ballistic, and Thermal Breaching

Our breaching course combines classroom lecture, hands on practice sessions, and practical scenario training that encompass the skills a Special Response Team member needs to be a productive breaching team member.Learn More

Often times in the “Tactical” community breaching is considered an afterthought. Most teams supply the “new guy” with the ram. It’s thought of as heavy, cumbersome and archaic. Some consider it a “starter” position within team. At AGS we believe one of the cornerstones of an effective LE Special Operations Unit is its ability to reduce it’s time on target, and make entry into a variety of structures as quickly and safely as possible. Breaching is a vital capability within your team and should be tasked to mature and experienced decision makers.
This course stresses operational safety standards and protocol, breaching reconnaissance, identification of fortifications and recognition of locking mechanisms. Students will practice a variety of breaching techniques to include ramming doors, halligan bar applications, sledge hammers, the use of window keys for “rake and break/port and cover” techniques, thermal cutting, applications for a quickie saw, and shotgun breaching. Techniques in this course will also be performed during night time (low light) hours.

Advanced Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT)

As in any law enforcement or military operation, the entry that takes place in a confined space must be planned and executed with much timing and precision. The principles and fundamentals of room clearing must be closely observed during this type of operation in order for it to be successful.Learn More
