Covert Methods of Entry (CMoE) Training in Lock Picking & Lock Bypassing Techniques for
Law Enforcement & Military Special Forces/EOD Personnel
Jericho Specialized Entry Training specializes in teaching both Law Enforcement and Military Special Forces/EOD personnel the art and science of covert and surreptitious entry techniques. While our instructors have diverse backgrounds in search warrant service, tactical training, anti-terrorism, firearms training, and much more, our sole training focus is on teaching numerous lock picking and lock bypassing techniques, and doing it well. Decades of law enforcement experience as well as locksmith certification and numerous field entries are just some of our qualifications. This helps us to understand the diverse training needs of tactical teams, field personnel, investigative units and more. Military Special Forces/EOD personnel, seasoned SWAT operators, first year patrol officers, supervisors, federal, state, county, city, and local law enforcement members can all benefit from learning covert and surreptitious entry skills.
While some companies may attempt to teach numerous courses in a broad training spectrum, we have found that focusing on doing one thing (teaching Covert Methods of Entry (CMoE) techniques) and doing it very well pays great dividends for our students. Our students have saved numerous lives, made multiple felony arrests, rescued small children and pets, and performed numerous other tactical and community oriented functions all while utilizing the skills we teach. While we view the skills that we teach as vital, we also realize that they cannot be used in all situations. Because safety and security of personnel and the community is paramount, circumstances in which alternate entry techniques may be more effective (including dynamic/destructive entry) are also discussed.
The skills taught by our instructors aide in search warrant service, check welfare calls, establishing sniper positions, emergency entry into vehicles, unlocking fire safes, arrest warrant service, surveillance, probation & parole searches, narcotics investigations, ’sneak and peek’ operations and more. Methods of entry, legal issues, tactics, tools, preparation for entry, and many other topics are covered during training. As we tell our students in class, we do not just desire to see students succeed in the classroom but to excel on the street. Our relationship with and responsibility to our students does not end when class is over. Jericho Specialized Entry Training does more than teach. We are a resource for agencies and individuals who have utilized our training services by responding to requests for service in the field. In other words, we practice what we preach! We invite and encourage you to look into attending or hosting a training course. You will not be disappointed!

Stories From the Front Lines:
. .I had my first lock pick request a few days ago during a welfare check. The subject had a prior history of suicide attempts and was currently trying to get off meth. His family had not talked to him in weeks and my boss offered my services to the officers attempting to make contact with him . . . When I arrived I couldn’t identify what brand lock was installed on the door, the lock core was installed upside down, and the security door interfered with my positioning so I had to pick the lock with my left hand. I thought to my self, well this sucks. Anyways I gave it my best shot and to my surprise I picked the lock with in about 30-40 seconds. Upon entering the subject had barricaded the door with a chair and the chair fell over before we realized what was going on. The sound of the chair falling alerted the subject to our presence. We entered quickly securing him without incident. His response was great. “How did you guys get the door unlocked?” My boss spoke up; we have an officer with specialized training that quickly picked the lock for us.” Even the subject seemed impressed.
