Synopsis:

A covert rural surveillance operation is not a working camping trip -- it's a risky undertaking that can't be compared to staking out an urban area. Developing a team that can successfully gather intelligence in the backwoods for hours, days or weeks at a time requires time, effort, support and commitment, plus a strong, visionary leader to see the value in creating such a team of experts. Van Ritch knows the importance of such operations. After over 20 years in the US Army, the former Special Forces officer and counterintelligence agent came home to address the dire need he saw for local law enforcement agencies to be able to cover all the ground in their jurisdictions. He wrote this book as a guide to any organisation or individual who needs to conduct searches or surveillance in rural and remote environments. In it, you will learn how to plan a mission and set goals, assemble a team, survive the environment, practice tactical movement, master camouflage, maintain constant security and more. Crime doesn't stop where the pavement ends. If you want to protect every corner of your territory, you need the information in this guide.
