As with any respectable military or similar high risk organization who has an elite unit, Monitor Net established its S.T.O.P (Specialized Tactical Operations Personnel) unit with their primary function to assist our own response officers in volatile situations as well as responding to high risk clients who potentially face lethal emergencies such as armed robberies.
Giving you a bit of background on how we create the ultimate response officer (the best of the best), we start off with selected individuals undergoing a typical old army "vasbyt" selection course called "Camp Kopano" (translated meaning, camp where individuals stand together). "Camp Kopano" in essence is a 103 hour course and in this time frame, trainees have to complete a distance of 145 kilometres (with weight) on foot and are only allowed 9 hours of sleep in total with minimal food and water supplies.
Further adding to mental stress is the realization that only a selected few will qualify for S.T.O.P training even if a trainee completed the selection phase, This selection phase is not a walk in the park and is obviously more intense than just the before mentioned basics as the objective of this course is to establish individual mentally and leadership.
After a proper rest period the selected individuals who completed "Camp Kopano" start with intense tactical training which include multiple facets in specialized training, covering aspects with real life scenarios which they may encounter in our environment which training include ADVANCED;
- Unarmed combat (Hand combat),
- Knife techniques,
- Armed combat,
- Observation techniques,
- House/Building penetration (systematic & dynamic),
- Crime scene management,
- Hostage negotiator,
- Government legislation,
- MFR (Medical First Responder) course,
- Managing and Controlling potential lethal situations,
- and more
All training facets are instructed by highly accredited institutions with most facets internationally approved
The S.T.O.P unit's response vehicles are equipped as our standard response vehicles with additional and necessary equipment e.g. night vision and so forth.
It's no wonder we are rated as the very best
and we will continue to set new standards in our industry!!!
