    “Deceptive Behaviors and Hidden Compartments,” taught by Brad Gilmore, provides police officers with a comprehensive break down of criminal trafficking trends, vehicle hides, and electronic hidden compartments. Instruction also covers simple indicators more prominently seen with high level criminal vehicles. Officers will be shown exactly how to conduct a methodical vehicle search that ensures no contraband will be missed, or compartment overlooked. Police Officers attending this class will gain extreme confidence and a new understanding of effective police work. Street Cop Training has received high regards and amazing aftermaths from previous attendees of this course.

    Detective Brad Gilmore began his career as a patrol officer in a Bergen County municipal police department. Gilmore quickly became extremely proficient at intercepting large amounts of contraband from criminal motor vehicle stops, despite working in a small municipality. Gilmore achieved several large seizures by identifying aftermarket hidden compartments while working as a “small town cop.” Gilmore himself has over 400 hours of hidden compartment training and has invested thousands more studying the areas for which his expertise lies. Gilmore was quickly recognized for his exceptional skills and abilities and is now employed as a County Detective assigned to the narcotics investigation’s division. This division focuses on the interception of large quantities of contraband on New Jersey roadways. In the last 4 years, Gilmore has been responsible for the seizure of millions of dollars in US currency, and several dozen kilograms of illegal Narcotics. He is also the Vice President of the NJ Narcotics Enforcement Officers Association. In 2019 Gilmore was deemed a COURT CERTIFIED HIDDEN COMPARTMENT AND DRUG TRAFFICKING EXPERT. Brad is hands down one of the best instructor’s there has ever been. His course, like many of ours, is experienced not taken.
