SPAT Introduction

Now, and into the foreseeable future, increasing expectations and burdens will undoubtedly be placed upon organizational capabilities within the realm of anti-terrorism and counter-terrorism. Globally, many organizations tasked with these assignments find themselves ill-prepared for the diverse and complex tasks associated with combating terrorism.

In late 2003, PPSC created its “Special Projects & Training” (SPAT) division to address these challenges. SPAT is comprised of current and former "Tier-One" special warfare operators, all of whom are also experienced in the art of training others in acquiring the skills necessary to perform  critical tasks.  SPAT training encompasses virtually all of the skill sets necessary to meet current and emerging threats to both populace and infrastructure, from proactive and reactive postures.

In keeping with the Police Policy Studies Council’s exemplary standards of ethics and quality, services provided by SPAT are generally available only to government organizations, by contract or special arrangement only.


"SPAT" has been structured to facilitate specialized services to government contractors, domestic and foreign.  This division has been structured by two Tier-One military specialists, Sean McCann, and Lt. Thomas Kopchains.

 

At this time, SPAT is structured to provide consultation and training services in the following areas:

  • Air Operations

  • Breaching Techniques & Tactics

  • Counter-Terrorism (Basic/Intermediate/Advanced)

  • Close Protection - High Risk

  • Close Quarters Battle
