Special Agent Training | ATF

Special Agent Training | ATF | Drug Enforcement | Scoop.it

Via Patrick Boggs
Brian Karlinski's insight:

Aspect 3

 1. The Basic Training program for special agents consists of two stages. The criminal investigators training program is the first of two. This step teaches the trainees about the fundamentals of law enforcement. 2. The first step lasts about 12 weeks Each class consists of around 48 trainees who are half ATF agents. The class can also include trainees from other agencies as well. 3. If you are already in a agency and you transfer to another one the boot camp requirement is waived. You must graduate from this boot camp to have a successful job with the government. When entered in this boot camp it is mandatory to complete it. 4. The second part of boot camp is Special Agent Basic Training (SABT). SABT for special agents is very intense and demanding. This training covers the fundamentals of firearms, explosive and criminal investigations. 5. You will also have to indoor field operations such as physical fitness and field operations. This course is designed to meet all special agent requirements. To pass a trainee must be disciplined and skilled.

Officers learn to spot drug traffickers at training seminar | Drug Enforcement | Scoop.it
Law enforcement officials said growing concerns over Mexican drug cartels have them sharpening their skills when it comes to spotting possible drug traffickers.
Brian Karlinski's insight:

ASPECT 3

7. Law enforcement officers say that they have a growing concern over drug cartels and how to spot them. The George County Sheriffs department started a program called the Drug Interdiction Assistance Program. This program will help officers spot and arrest drug traffickers. 8. Law enforcement officers will have the ability to use high tech devices to help them in dangerous situations. "It also gives them another option besides lethal force," said Captain Ben Brown, with the George County Sheriff's Department. "  All of these tools are non lethal tools. 9. Also during these training events officers will get helpful tips on how to stop drug traffickers on roadways. "Drug smuggling is really on the upswing with the Mexican cartels. They're utilizing major traffic corridors," Brown said. "We're learning what to look for when we pull an 18-wheeler over. Indicators that a driver might be involved with criminal activity such as drug trafficking," Herrin said. 10. In total there are 55 officers training in this event. Most were from Mississippi and Alabama. Also some officer from Canada took place in this training.

Brian Karlinski's insight:

1. The Washington National guard is training DEA special agents how to use domestic force. More than 50 special agents were tested through this 9 week course. This course was made up of painful and physical training. 2. About 70 DEA agents were deployed to afghanistan  in 2011. Because of these deployments it is important to train and equip these special agents for this environment. These agents will be deployed for 2 years. 3. With this training they will be able to work along side their military counterparts. The DEA went to the national Guard because they have a unique skill set. A lot of these agents are volunteers for this assignment in afghanistan.

Interview

Cpl. Jason Brown, United States Marine Corps

Brian Karlinski's insight:

What was going through boot camp like?

  It was an experience both fun and at at times overwhelming. It was pretty much a once in a lifetime event that i don't want to have to got through again.

 

Have you ever had to train with other government agencies?

  Yes once but we learned more from them than them learning from us. They are a great group of men that i would love to train with in the future.

 

How did you get in to your job with the Marines?

  I joined the Marines not knowing what to expect. When i learned that my job would involve terriorist prevention and how to react to an attack i was excited because i still remember 9/11 and how terrible it was.

 

Do you think going into criminology will help me land a job in the government?

  Absolutely, Its never a bad idea to study criminal justice or criminology. From what i heard you learn every thing from terriost prevention to the the law. It is always good to study also if you want to go into the police force.

 

What is it like to live in D.C.?

  I like it to a certain extent. I hate driving the beltway every day but i think it is kind of neat to live in our nations capitol every day.

 

What has been the highlight moment of your career?

  There has been quit a few i can recall but the most exciting one i think was when i got to do security for president Obama's second inaguration. Not everyone can say they get to witness these kind of events but at the same time i had to put my excitement to the side and focus on my job.

 

How often to you get off in the Marine Corps?

  It all depends on your job and your command. I get off every weekend and during the week i end at 4 so i like my schedule. But at the same time Kevin doesn't get many off days since he is based along the border so it veries.

 

Have you ever had to deal with drug enforcement yet in the D.C. area?

  No not really because we focus more on the terrorist prevention part of things but i know some cops in the area and from what i have heard they are always busy cracking down on drugs.

 

Do you ever miss your friends and family at times?

  Haha sometimes especially when i was at boot camp but now that i get off every week end i try to visit pittsburgh depending on if i feel like driving the beltway.

 

Do you think it is better for me to transfer to Maryland or to Pitt Main after two years if I want to land a job with the government?

  It all depends on really your grades and how good each program is. Living near the campus at Maryland every day i never really hear anything bad about the campus and i know you can get ties from the government being that the campus is 5 minutes away. But i am sure you can get ties from going to Pitt as well so it would really be up to you.

Detroit dealers flood county with heroin - Richmond Register

Detroit dealers flood county with heroin - Richmond Register | Drug Enforcement | Scoop.it
Detroit dealers flood county with heroin Richmond Register RICHMOND — Heroin, a drug that used to be associated with 1970s rock stars and inner cities, has crept into Madison County recently, leading to a law enforcement “nightmare,” according to...
Brian Karlinski's insight:

1. Police in the town of Richmond say that the heroin is dominating the market right now. Addicts are turning to heroin because it is cheaper and faster high. Drug gangs in cities like Detroit are starting to bring these heroin patches south. 2. Heroin makes it way into the U.S. through mostly Mexico and South American countries. The drug cartel is aiming at Detroit as one of the major imports. The head of the DEA in Kentucky quoted "The key to taking down a trafficking operation is to remove the person in charge. 3. The head of The DEA Sgt. Tutor said "You work to dismantle, not disrupt, That’s how you take care of the problem." They fear the strategy will be difficult though because the drug lords will not leave Detroit. The DEA said you can keep on arresting but they will just keep putting a new person in charge.4. A strategy the drug gangs use is to send multiple suppliers south using nicknames. This will make it very difficult for the drug forces down south to catch and arrest them. It’s a “nightmare” for law enforcement, Tudor added.
