Roger served over 20 years with the NYPD, where he spearheaded the NYPD’s first dedicated facial recognition unit. The unit has conducted more than 8,500 facial recognition investigations, with over 3,000 possible matches and approximately 2,000 arrests. Roger’s enhancement techniques are now recognized worldwide and have changed law enforcement’s approach to the utilization of facial recognition technology.
The search or raid entry is over; the subjects are secure and being
guarded; and the detectives are gathering their evidence. SWAT’s

Dynamic entries depend on “surprise, shock, and speed” and you go to
the suspects. With deliberate entries like “surround and callout” the
suspects come to you. Knock and announce requirements vary for each
jurisdiction and must be followed.
Remember Murphy's Law. Unexpected obstacles, dogs, darkness, etc., can throw off even the best-laid plans. Effective perimeters don't happen by accident. They require tactics, planning, and precision coordination.
