This dynamic and immersive training will focus on sovereign citizens and their rapidly increasing problematic contact with all forms of government, with a specific focus on interactions with law enforcement and criminal justice personnel. Basic awareness of this growing threat and how it will directly impact the daily duties and responsibilities of law enforcement and other government entities will be discussed at length. Attendees should expect a general “indoctrination” into the sovereign citizen movement to help further awareness, recognition and mitigation of this unconventional and bothersome problem.



Additionally, a significant portion of training will cover First Amendment Auditors, their goals and tactics, and best practices when encountered by law enforcement and other government officials.

Topics covered and course focus:

  • Learn the fundamental principles of the sovereign citizen movement, including ideological beliefs, pillars, doctrines, tactics, and goals
  • Identify sovereign indicators through language identification and document recognition
  • Paper Terrorism through false liens and lawsuits
  • Courtroom behavior/tactics
  • Attendees will be taught to recognize common militia ideology, activity, tactics and symbology.
  • Boogaloo and III% ideologies
  • Anti-government views pertaining to gun rights, land rights, and government mandates
  • Who are Auditors and what do they want?
  • Best practices for professional and safe encounters when engaging with First Amendment Auditors
  • Threat actors with anti-law enforcement beliefs
