Counter Ambush Tactics and Officer Survival in 2015: A Special Event with Ron McCarthy
There has been a significant increase in officers murdered and spontaneous ambush events. The threat can be responded to effectively if officers are trained to recognize the threat and to tactically react. Ambush avoidance is critical to survival. This presentation will provide the attendee with information to help make the officers in their agencies safer.

SWAT Callout Dinners
Meet Time: 7:00 p.m.
Join us for our annual SWAT Call Out Dinners, where students have the opportunity to make new contacts, trade war stories and enjoy a good meal. We will identify topic areas of discussion and groups will include one NTOA representative, several conference attendees and one NTOA sponsor.
You must be registered for the conference to attend a dinner. Each group may include only one representative from an agency, no exceptions.
