Non Destructive Entry (NDE/Lockpicking)
Why Use Non-Destructive Entry (Lock Picking)? Simple: in many cases, law enforcement and the fire service uses the most expensive, the most destructive and least effective method to make entry into residential and commercial structures. Sometimes a rapid, dynamic and destructive entry is necessary and tactically required. However, sometimes a tactical situation may benefit from an alternative breach point using an alternative method. In other cases, someone inside a dwelling may simply be in need of assistance and be unable to come to the door (think "lift assist", welfare checks or other non-urgent events). In still other cases, entry is necessary for community caretaker and/or emergency situations, such as a house that is flooding, a welfare check, a suspicious circumstance, or similar. How many times has a door been destroyed on a welfare check of the resident only to discover that they were on vacation? The average cost to repair a door forced open can be expensive and in the hundreds of dollars, if not the thousands in some cases Not to mention the lost time to wait for a board-up crew when those officers could be clear and back on thee street, or the insecure structure you leave behind, and the loss of good will for a destroyed home or business. The same techniques will also work with a residential lockout, should you choose to also perform this.
We provide training and supplies for law enforcement and other public safety in Non Destructive Entry (NDE). This training provides an alternative option to forced destruction when breaching a residential or commercial structure. The techniques allow police and fire agencies a tactical option of entry, as well as the option to make entry in other circumstances where causing damage may be undesirable.
We also offer several entry tools and products for law enforcement and public safety, most at a significant discount.
