Just-in-time information is critically important in a landscape full of content. NCBRT’s speakers can take conversations in a direction that shine a light on issues that normally get glossed over. The entire process was extremely well organized, from the inception of the idea, preliminary planning, execution of the actual program and post-production follow-up. NCBRT is my standard of excellence.
I feel this training filled in so many blanks for my Officers. Being in Northern New Jersey and in the middle of the highest COVID-19 cases, getting as much information like this is so valuable.
Your video and training guide were most helpful at a critical time and I shared my experience with other state chiefs. I know that you must have gotten flooded with requests after that. Thank you for being on the front lines with us and through this.
As a hospital and transport team, we utilize your wonderful information to make sure we are not missing something and, if so, be able to change it. Currently, the information has been a wonderful reinforcement and very educational.
We utilized the roll call training as a mandatory course in our PowerDMS system. The Job Aid has been posted in common areas, distributed in emails, and posted in patrol vehicles. This training allowed us to provide timely training to our agency in a quick, cost free manner. Thank you!
During our current/ongoing Public Health Department COVID-19 planning and response, exposure to these concepts increased my awareness of the importance to consider other incidents that could occur and how those would impact our current operations. The current protests are a prime example, especially from our PH standpoint of potential for increased community spread, etc. The hands-on breakout sessions were excellent! They provided small windows of opportunity for on-scene planning/response coordination.
I found this class to be extremely helpful for me in order to help me better understand the criminal analyst portion of my job. The instructors were knowledgeable and understanding. This allowed me to understand the material in the course easier. The time that they spent engaging with the students in the course assisted me in feeling more comfortable with the research and analysis portion of my job. The course will help me meet the standard and requirement in order to provide adequate and clear reports to the law enforcement agencies I work with throughout five counties.
