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:
This is the only time I've made a wrong call on a [dead body]. The call came out as a [Check Welfare]. Elderly [female] in her 80's friend had not heard from her for 2 to 3 days, and they usually spoke on a daily basis. She requested we go [check welfare] on her. I checked all the doors and windows around the property, and they were secure except for the rear sliding glass door. The sliding glass door could only be opened about a 1/4 inch, as it had a rod jamming it closed. We could smell decay coming from the interior of the house through the sliding patio door on the rear of the property, but it would only open a crack. I told my [sergeant] what I had, and he said we could only make entry if we could do so without causing any damage. I used my bump keys and successfully unlocked the locks to the front door. When we entered the house, we could smell decay, and animals. Officer Stanley and I were clearing the house, and I saw the 80 year old lying naked, face up on the tile living room floor with her eyes and mouth open. Her knees were bent, and her feet were on the floor. From half way down her shin to the floor was purple in color, and it appeared as lividity had set in. Both my partner and I believed her to be [deceased]. I announced Phoenix PD loudly, as we were clearing the house. At that point I observed the [female’s] lips move very slightly, as if she was trying to respond. I told my partner who was not able to see [her] face from behind me. We both rushed to her, and she was not able to move. We had fire dispatched immediately, and they responded. The [female’s] vitals were off the charts, and fire started a drip immediately. Fire was amazed that she was still with us, and said she would have been gone within hours for sure. She was transported to [John C. Lincoln hospital], and was able to speak with us when we dropped off her garage door remote at the hospital.
