The Polaris Counter Crime, Reconnaissance & Surveillance Detection Training Course (CCRSDT) is accredited and equips delegates with the knowledge and skills they need to identify and counter targeted reconnaissance and directed surveillance attacks. We use a variety of study methods, and an immersive form of training, to provide delegates with practical operational skills.

Our experienced professional instructors all have extensive operational experience and keep up to date with the latest thinking, techniques and intelligence. All instructors have previously served in either the Military, Government Security Services or Police special operations roles.  This exceptional experience enables Polaris to deliver the very best commercially available training.

The course concentrates on the fundamentals of operating in different environments and how to detect and defeat targeting in a variety of situations.

The content is operationally relevant and appropriate for the commercial protection environment, delivered to national and NPOG standards, while operating within legal boundaries for civilian protection officers.
