Some of the benefits of tracking knowledge for law enforcement are:

*Ability to properly articulate tracking and foot impression evidence in a court of law
*Determine number of persons involved
*Disprove an incident even happened all together
*Trained officers may determine or eliminate suspects at the scene by Finding, Documenting and Interpreting Footprint Evidence
*Find and/or Eliminate Directions of Travel
*Extend Crime Scenes
*Find Evidence away from the scene
*Perimeter security
*Intelligence gathering/reconnaissance
*Search and Rescue
*Effective in Recovering armed and dangerous fugitives in rural areas
*Tracking compliments and enhances a canine handler’s mission.           *The lack of tracks is evidence in itself

*Tactical acuity has been proven more effective in finding tripwires and IED’s than all the current technology in use.

*Anti-tracking techniques may be used for: counter tracking, hiding remote intelligence gathering equipment, recon operations, sniper hides and surveillance sites,

*A basic knowledge of tracking and foot impression evidence aids in; prompting confessions, provides physical evidence for convictions and enhances Officer Safety.

*We can all be taught the value of tracks & tracking and basic tracking skills to some degree; to become a “Tracker” takes time and commitment the same as any other specialized skill.

Occupying 430 acres in Moore County, Samarcand Training Academy provides correctional, in-service, law enforcement and advanced law enforcement training.

A 2013 North Carolina General Assembly allocation of $10.4 million has been used to convert the former Samarkand Manor into a corrections and law enforcement training center for the Department of Public Safety. Samarcand has six classrooms, dormitory space capable of housing overnight students, and a cafeteria.

The primary purpose of the academy is to conduct basic training for correctional officers, probation/parole officers and juvenile justice employees, as well as other in-service training.  The law enforcement agencies within DPS will be able to use Samarcand to conduct in-service and advanced training programs, while other local, state and federal agencies may also conduct training at the facility from time to time.
