Milwaukee, WI
The Wisconsin Center

Co-hosted by:



This rugged and unique city, located on the shores of Lake Michigan, is the perfect backdrop for the NTOA’s premier conference. Dubbed one of the 10 most exciting cities in America, Milwaukee is home to MillerCoors, Harley-Davidson, the soaring Milwaukee Art Museum, and a bustling food and arts scene along its two-mile RiverWalk.

This six-day event is jam-packed with hands-on training, seminars, incident debriefs and opportunities to network with leaders in the law enforcement community. Our two-day trade show features more than 250 vendors showcasing the latest technologies and products.



How You’ll Learn

Three methods of training:

Practical Training

This portion of the conference is hands-on training designed to teach both core and advanced tactical skill sets and can range from 8 to 32 hours, depending upon the track. These courses may include some classroom lecture, but are mostly interactive and physically demanding. They also require participants to bring their own equipment and firearms to class.

Seminar Training

This portion of the conference is lecture-based training, which may include some tabletop exercises and group discussions. Seminar-based courses are typically 2 or 4 hours, and may be offered multiple times throughout the week.


Incident Debriefs

This portion of the conference is lecture-based training, but focuses primarily on lessons learned and current trends affecting our society and the law enforcement community. You will hear firsthand from the officers involved in these situations and how they were handled.
