Covert Interdiction 4-day courses designed for undercover officers and agents in a covert role (Forward Intelligence Teams (FIT)) and Evidence Gathering, designed to aid small teams in close contact with crowds to identify dangerous suspects and aid in the removal of ring leaders from behind the blue line.

Additionally, we can tailor-make programs for your Department’s specific needs. We do not offer Mobile Field Force training, as we find it to be insufficient to meet the needs of modern day public order forces. Instead, S.E.T.S., Inc. offers highly practical real-life training, training like we fight. We have 40 sets of riot equipment which is the current British HOSDB (Home Office Scientific Department Branch) standard, which sets the standard for all riot equipment in Europe available for students; to not only protect them, but to encourage full force participation and engagement.
