Mexican Drug Cartel Investigations
Las Vegas, NV
Mexican Drug Trafficking Organizations are impacting
communities in nearly every city in the United States. In 2011, Mexican
Drug Cartels operated in 39 states across the country. This problem can
no longer be viewed as a “border issue.” The majority of the drugs
distributed and consumed in the U.S. originate in Mexico. In an effort to
aggressively target drug trafficking organization, law enforcement officials
need to understand how the Mexican Drug War impacts local cities in the U.S. on
a daily basis. The drug cartel leaders have strategically formed
relationships with American street gangs to flood the communities with illicit
drugs. This relationship has caused great concern for law enforcement
agencies in the U.S. It is imperative that law enforcement officials gain
a true understanding of the “Mexican Cartel& American Street Gang
Connection.” This course does not
focus on statistical data or other information easily obtained through online
searches regarding Mexican drug cartels. The information presented is based on
the instructor’s unique experience in conducting long-term undercover
operations, wiretap intercepts, and debriefings of suspects directly linked to
various Mexican drug cartels
Course Length: 2days 16 hours
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be
U.S. based cartel structure and regional controls.
investigative procedures to solve “hits” in American cities.
Mexican drug cartel/American Hispanic street gang connections.
patterns used by street gangs under the direction of Mexican drug cartel.
the “Drug Trafficking Pyramid” from street level to supply source.
cartel bribery methods and counter-surveillance techniques.
financial investigations to dismantle an operation.
smuggling routes, phony fronts, and concealment methods.
different levels of informants and the benefits of wire tap.
safety concerns of undercover operations and various infiltration
investigations to Grand Jury for prosecution.
violent encounters between cartels and U.S. law enforcement
May Attend: Law Enforcement,

2-Day Surveillance & Covert Operations
Course length: 16 Hours
This course was designed for Officers/Detectives assigned to Narcotics, Gangs,
Vice/Human Trafficking, or other Specialized Units. This intense two (2) day course will
provide the students with the basic skills of stationary, foot, and mobile surveillance
techniques. Surveillance is an “Art” that requires training, discipline, and patience. Most
investigations involve conducting surveillance of individual(s) without being detected,
which is why understanding and employing proven techniques is so important. This is
an excellent course for both newer and experienced LE personnel.
Day one will consist of classroom lecture involving proven surveillance and counter surveillance
techniques, mobile surveillance, field operational planning, goals and
objectives of surveillance operations, decision-making, equipment preparation, proper
documentation, and how to operate in a team surveillance concept. Additionally, the
proper and legal use of GPS tracking device along with search warrant examples for
tracking devices will be covered.
Day two will consist of mobile surveillance training scenarios, where the students will
conduct surveillance on role players. Decision making out in the field and team
coordination will also be covered. See flyer for additional information.
