Interdiction (Instructor-led & Hybrid)

Law enforcement, military, and security are often tasked to observe and interact with threatening or suspicions people. Behavioral observation and assessment must occur throughout this encounter. At SSTS, we call this an interdiction.

An interdiction between an authority figure and a Person of Interest (POI) may include a verbal conversation between a security guard and a customer at a shopping center. It may also be a proactive stop by a police officer of a person believed to be carrying a weapon.  An interdiction is dynamic and requires constant assessment, action, and reaction.

 Threat Assessment Interdiction

Our Interdiction course builds upon the initial 8-hour threat awareness course. The objective of this 32-hour course is to provide students tools and techniques to conduct a safe and effective interdiction while conducting constant behavioral observation and assessment. This course is relevant to any police, security, or military personnel who has a mission to approach and engage with members of the public.

At SSTS, we believe an interdiction is a standardized sequence of events. To facilitate behavioral observation and the execution of safe and effective interdictions, we developed the Universal Interdiction Framework (UIF) to describe a law enforcement civilian interaction. The UIF captures the dynamic and iterative decision-making process of observations, assessments, predictions, planning, and actions which we found to occur during an interdiction.  As a teaching tool, the UIF helps facilitate efficient, legal and safe interdictions.
