Doylestown, Pa. ( – The National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA), in addition to exhibiting in Booth #10353 at SHOT Show 2017, will once again offer attendees the opportunity to participate in NTOA training seminars. As part of the Law Enforcement Education Program (LEEP), participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance upon completion confirming course participation to document their training. The LEEP program focuses on the most contemporary law enforcement challenges and technology advancements. A one-time registration fee of $25 gives attendees access to all 2017 LEEP courses.

“Our seminars last year proved to be a sold-out success and some of the most highly demanded LEEP sessions available during SHOT Show. We’re excited to return this year with seminars we feel are significant and on-topic for challenges faced by today’s law enforcement officers,” said Mark Lomax, NTOA’s executive director.

The NTOA will be offering the following seminars:

These LEEP classes need to all have a Support and Defend the Constitution based approach that accepts that no matter how LEO’s may justify their oppressive tactics, many of us are untrusting of them and count on our civil rights as a last line of defense. Many innocent bystanders are abused by aggressive tactics as our police forces become militarized, often with trained military in their ranks. The tactical ranks also need to be thoroughly assessed for PTSD and other psychological and psychiatric stresses.
