 About Us

Undercover Academy is the ultimate training program for Undercover Officers assigned to work Narcotics or Online Predator investigations.

Undercover Academy offers five, one-day classes. Students can choose to attend one class or multiple classes depending on their professional needs.

The instruction in each class builds upon the training in the additional classes. While the classes can be taken individually, it is recommended that all classes be completed for the total training experience.


Current class offerings include: 

  • Undercover Drug Investigations

  • Online Predator Investigations

  • Surveillance and Team Tactics

  • Undercover Tactical Operations

  • Undercover Survival Tactics

Upon completion of the Undercover Drug Investigations class, the student is given access to the online Undercover Academy document library. Here they can access all the necessary forms to organize and streamline their investigations.

Undercover Academy tactics were created to maximize the efficiency of investigations and minimize the risk to Undercover Officers. Students learn universal undercover principles that are effective for ANY size agency.

Undercover Academy instructors were chosen for their expertise in topics ranging from undercover investigations to tactical missions. Their combined years in Law Enforcement exceed 100 years of experience.
