The Covert Electronic Tracking Program (CETP) is designed to give agents/officers the necessary skills to operate, install, and analyze information using the latest GPS technology and field applications. Each student will use GPS equipment to allow them the opportunity to learn how to use this technology and practice installation techniques using a wide variety of vehicle types and locations. Students will demonstrate their comprehension of the material and techniques taught in this course through a variety of field exercises with professional role players as targeted individuals. Special training will be included on live tracking of a target vehicle.
