045: Brad Smith: Canine Tactical Operations and Consulting

In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discuss:

  • Brad’s professional journey to becoming one of the leading subject matter experts on SWAT and K9.
  • The S.K.I.D.D.S. and CATS programs at K9TacOps.
  • The differences between civilian SWAT and military canine units.
  • Major tactical errors Brad sees regularly in tactical deployments.

Key Takeaways:

  • A patrol operation and a SWAT operation should be the same as far as how you search.
  • Take what you learn in classes, then go back and teach others in your department.
  • Keep everything slow and deliberate – it is safer for everyone involved in a search.
  • Never stop learning – things are evolving and changing and there is always something new that can be learned.
