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 thought I would share a success story with you. Yesterday afternoon my department assisted another agency with a missing persons case and located the missing subject’s vehicle at one of our hotels. Patrol had confirmed the missing person was checking into a room, however the subject was not answering the door. For some unknown reason the hotel’s bypass key would not work to open the lock and it was a solid core door with a metal jam – not something that would be easy to force. I responded and used the under-the-door lever tool and within 1 minute had the door open. The door then stopped because the subject had thrown the extra security latch commonly found on hotel doors. I then used the Lock Jockey tool on that and had that door open in just a few more seconds. The subject was found inside the room, barely breathing and unconscious. He had taken an intentional overdose of multiple medications in a suicide attempt. Within probably another 30 minutes he would have been deceased. There is no doubt that patrol would have gained access to the room in some fashion, but not near as quickly or damage free as I was able to with the correct tools. The hotel manager was ecstatic when he found out how we gained access, he had already given consent to have the door forced and said it could have cost him over $1000.00 to repair the damage. Thanks again for your awesome class, I have now used my skills on search warrants, locked safes, and now a welfare check and have been able to get access 100% of the time (so far anyway)! Keep up the good work.
