About the event

Knock & Talk operations, when conducted properly, can be a very successful tactic to combat illegal criminal activity. One of the most difficult aspects of conducting knock & talk operations is gaining voluntary consent to enter a residence and conduct a search.

Officers must put themselves able to win. This starts with the initial approach to the residence, knocking on the door, and the tone and demeanor presented by the officers. There are numerous Supreme Court rulings that dictate proper ways officers should carry out knock & talks.

The 4th Amendment of the constitution governs illegal search and seizures. Officers must have a clear understanding of the 4th Amendment and current case law to conduct knock & talk operations legally.

In recent years, several knock & talk operations have turned into deadly encounters. Officers must conduct preoperational briefings and cover all tactical considerations prior to initiating a knock & talk operation.

This intense one-day training course will provide in-depth information and proper techniques & tactics for officers to conduct knock & talks.

  • Knock & Talk Operations
  • Up-to-Date Case Law
