NCTOA members,

The SWAT Competition held November 5-7 was a big success.  I want to congratulate NCDPS on their third place finish, U.S. Army SRT on their second place finish and Durham PD on their first place finish.  This marks the second year in a row that Durham PD has taken home the Eagle Trophy.  I want to thank all the teams that competed this year.  Your competitive spirit and sportsmanship were felt throughout the entire competition.  I also want to acknowledge the hard work and dedicated efforts of the NCJA staff.  As I have said many times, the NCJA is the true home of the SWAT Competition.  Lastly, I want to thank A.A. Boone, Jamie Broadwell, Katelan Coffey, Bob McLaughlin (Banzai), and Jason Bennet for all your efforts as NCTOA representatives.

We are approaching mid-November, I would ask all our members to serve as recruiting ambassadors and help the NCTOA grow its membership.  Please take this opportunity to renew your membership and/or become a new member during this time.  If you are already a member, please pass the membership/renewal form along to others who may have interest in the NCTOA.  As a reminder, officers must apply for memberships and renewals individually.  The membership/renewal form that you previously received must be completed and submitted to J. Eric Preddy at eric.ncswat@gmail.com before Friday, November 30, 2018.  Once received, a commemorative coin will be mailed to the address provided on the form.  Thank you for your support!


Be safe and STAY IN THE FIGHT!


Eric Preddy – NCTOA President
