TACTICAL TRACKER TEAMS
Guide to High Risk Manhunt Operations

K9 Trailing Book 3

”Jeff Schettler’s newest book“K9 Trailing: Tactical Tracking Teams should be required reading for any K9 handler who tracks fugitives with a police dog in a rural environment or wilderness area — arguably the most dangerous job in law enforcement today. A handler and dog tracking alone or separated from a tactical support team during a high risk manhunt is a liability and no longer acceptable. Tactical Tracking Teams provides invaluable and practical recommendations and guidelines to minimize risk and prepare a team for a deployment. The emphasis on teamwork and the chapter on “proximity alerts” — along with the practical application and realistic training recommendations — may literally save the lives of handlers or team members during searches. You may not be able to attend a training course on tactical tracking team operations with Jeff Schettler, but you can take advantage of his experience by reading Tactical Tracking Teams today.” 
–Sergeant Bill Lewis II (Retired)
