Why Choose the National Criminal Justice Training Center?

NCJTC in the News

A National Leader in Training and Technical Assistance

At the National Criminal Justice Training Center of Fox Valley Technical College (NCJTC), we are dedicated to equipping criminal justice professionals with the right training and tools to affect lasting and meaningful change in the communities they serve.

As a leading national criminal justice training organization, we deliver quality innovative training, expert instruction, and technical assistance solutions for combating prevailing public safety and community challenges. NCJTC has significant experience working in culturally sensitive areas, such as tribal communities. We tailor our training and technical assistance to support rural and under-resourced communities and understand the importance of meeting your specific needs, rather than a “one-size-fits-all” approach.

Through federal grants and national contracts, we have had the great privilege to train hundreds of thousands of criminal justice professionals in every state and internationally. You can be confident that you are receiving the highest quality training possible from a trusted organization.

Executive Director - National Criminal Justice Training Center

" As we approach the second anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic, I want to begin by recognizing the extraordinary efforts undertaken by our staff and instructors to overcome the many challenges associated with converting traditional classroom training programs to a range of eLearning formats. Working in close collaboration with one another across 12 training categories funded through 14 unique grants and contract training purpose areas, NCJTC staff members and instructors quickly and effectively pivoted to restructure dozens of training programs and their associated resources into a highly effective online format.

We understand the critical need for training and technical assistance and are proud to report that over the first 20 months of the pandemic, NCJTC delivered 695 online training events to over 105,000 participants. While we are hopeful for the resumption of collaborative in-person training on a broader scale, we have learned many valuable lessons throughout these unprecedented times. The pandemic has redefined the relationship between training providers and the people we serve, while also underscoring the value of online learning platforms. Through this medium, we have seen increased levels of participation and greater access to critically important information and resources for underserved, tribal, and rural communities. Future learning opportunities will continue to leverage technology to deliver eLearning resources available through Fox Valley Technical College. We remain committed to learning models that employ a combination of online and in-person training.

NCJTC is dedicated to developing new programs and resources to meet the constantly evolving needs of the criminal justice communities we serve. I encourage you to explore our website to locate the new classroom and online learning opportunities developed this past year at ncjtc.org/training. In 2021, over 1 million website visitors took advantage of our grant funded and cost-recovery training programs to enhance their skills. NCJTC embraces opportunities to collaborate with agencies and communities to host and deliver customized programs that meet your unique needs. We have a cadre of over 150 nationally recognized subject matter experts and 70 dedicated and experienced staff members ready to work with you on a wide range of criminal justice challenges.

Thank you for the work you do to protect Indigenous Sovereign Nations and America’s communities. "
