Patrolling is a fine tactic that requires extensive training and strategic knowledge. In a civilian context, several aspects have to be taken into considerations to ensure an effective work under the law. 
This resorts to over 30 years of IAPPA experience and contains insights from both military and private security experts.


Different than a military patrol, you have to secure an area you have no control over and protect specific targets or areas. In this course, you will be made familiar with methods to do so safely and avoiding hiccups.

You will learn how to build a routine and develop awareness to make this difficult job easy.
