Back in December (2005), DefenseReview reported on an advanced anti-terrorism/countertertorrism SWAT school we attended
that was put on by IMS Security
at Camp Bonneville
. That course was described by every operator we interviewed as the most intense SWAT course they had every taken (i.e. the most physically and mentally demanding), and, hands-down, the single most relevant and useful course they had ever taken for anti-terrorism/counterterrorism tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP). The IMS advanced anti-terrorism SWAT school
was designed to enable SWAT teams and individual operators to deal with active shooter and terrorist threats as quickly and efficiently as possible. However, as good as it is, that one course doesn’t provide a complete picture of IMS’ expertise.
is actually a full-service anti-terrorism/counterterrorism training and consulting firm that specializes in training military Special Operations and general infantry units, law enforcement SWAT teams, and individual tactical operators and 1st Responders in a multitude of anti-terrorism/counterterrorism disciplines
that go far beyond the specific terrorist takedown skillset taught in the course we attended
. With that in mind, IMS
has created a restricted presentational video (DVD format) on their Counter-Terror School that’s…
intended only for viewing by United States military Special operations units and law enforcement SWAT teams. This video presentation shows the larger-picture training course suite that IMS offers it’s clients/students. The presentational video (DVD) shows some of the specialized counterterrorism operational TTP that IMS is capable of effectively teaching to its clients/students, TTP that has been developed by Israeli Special Forces units over many years of having to deal with constant terrorist threats in their own cities and surrounding areas. The tactical operations skills demonstrated in the video represent cutting edge Israeli methodology for both reactive operations against terrorist attacks and preemptive operations against terrorist threats.
Defense Review has been given permission to show a 39-second clip that was put together from different sections of the IMS Counter-Terror School
presentational video on the DVD, in order to give our readers a glimpse of what it contains. The video clip contains footage of a bus assault (bus takedown) that demonstrates the extreme speed of the IMS method. Definitely worth watching.
