The NTOA will offer a full-day seminar on investing in your agency’s defensibility. In addition, the NTOA will present two seminars during SHOT Show’s Law Enforcement Education Program.

Colorado Springs, Colo. (November 2018) – The National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA) is proud to announce it will be offering a one-day seminar, “The Most Defensible Position Possible,” just prior to SHOT Show 2019 this coming January. Law enforcement agencies invest significant time and resources in training and response capabilities in order to prepare themselves for critical incidents, but have you invested in your defensibility? This full day seminar, taught by Attorney Eric Daigle, will explore the most recent and relevant civil litigation cases that impact law enforcement operations. Attendees will gain a better understanding of the steps necessary to ensure their decision making and subsequent operations are in the most defensible position possible.

The one-day seminar will take place at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Monday, Jan. 21, 2019 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Register now to make sure you have a seat in this timely and important training.

The NTOA will also offer SHOT Show attendees the opportunity to participate in NTOA training seminars during the SHOT Show Law Enforcement Education Program (LEEP). As part of LEEP, participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance upon completion, confirming course participation and documenting their training. The LEEP program focuses on protection measures and tactical execution. Attendees must be law enforcement or military and registered through SHOT Show to attend the LEEP programs.

“We are excited to once again participate in the LEEP Program at the upcoming SHOT Show 2019. We look forward to educating our fellow law enforcement officers and military personnel on some of the most in-demand and timely topics of today. We are gratified that our seminars continue to be some of the most highly demanded LEEP sessions offered,” commented Don Kester, the NTOA’s Director of Training.
