Why Join the NC Tactical Officers Association?

The North Carolina Tactical Officers Association is poised to be the most authoritative and respected name in the North Carolina law enforcement Tactical community. The State of North Carolina has over 100 tactical teams operating out of municipalities, Sheriff’s Offices, and State run Tactical teams.  The goal is for all teams to have a membership within the association so we can further needs of tactical officers across the state.  Joining the association will enable the organization to grow and benefit both small and large area teams through more frequent training, up to date tactics, and information sharing.The association cannot continue to grow without the support of it’s membership.  We have made great strides in the past 5 years but renewing the membership of your agency is just as important as initially joining the association.  It further enables the association to provide more regional training events, enhances the conference, and enables the association to bring in trainers and speakers for instruction and debriefs.It also allows your agency to have a voice in what types of training are needed the most.  We have received multiple requests for training at various locations and have always worked to provide what is asked for our membership.
