In this course, officers receive an overview of the Army’s “Deliberate Mission Planning Process” which is a tool for managing time when officers have more than 48 hours to plan a challenging mission like a high-risk arrest or large event. The course also provides a tool for managing information called the Operations Order. Officers then work through each step of this deliberate planning process to eventually reach a decision about how they will plan the mission. This mission is planned at lunch, and a students will fill out a portion of the Operations Order to brief the class their mission after lunch. The class concludes with a written final exam and then an after-action review of the course.

This course offers a standard for planning based on the spectrum of “tactical excellence” (accomplishing the mission with minimal costs) and “tactical failure” (a mission where the cost exceeded the benefit of accomplishing the mission). The course also introduces a tool for managing time called the “Time-constrained Planning Process”, and a tool for managing information called the “Concept of the Operation”.
This course will introduce students to how threat actors utilize and exploit financial system to generate, move, store and use their illicit proceeds. The course develops the student’s understanding of threat finance covering the fundamentals of money laundering, financial system vulnerabilities, and financial intelligence support.

We will also do a 3-hour daylight navigation practical exercise, and a 3-hour night practical exercise.
This course provides military planning tools and practical guidance that will help students become better organized mission planners. The course will introduce general frameworks to help students improve their information, time, and risk management to support the foundational goal of officer safety. This course is designed to be highly experiential and hands-on.
This course teaches students basic techniques to identify the location where a picture or video was taken through a combination of reverse image searches and online searching. This course uses both lecture and practical exercises to teach the students.

This course offers a standard for planning based on the spectrum of “tactical excellence” (accomplishing the mission with minimal costs) and “tactical failure” (missions where the costs exceeded the benefits of accomplishing the mission). The course also introduces a tool for managing time called the “Time-constrained Planning Process” which can be used when officers have between 2 and 48 hours to plan a mission. Officers are introduced to a tool for managing information called the “Concept of the Operation”. Students will break up into teams and plan a time-constrained mission over lunch. A class on giving a military-style mission brief is taught, and students then brief the class the mission they planned based upon that class. The final class is how to conduct an After-Action Review.
