LEESBURG, Va. — Registration is open for the 2021 Public Safety Cadets National Competitive Training Conference (NCTC), taking place in Gatlinburg, Tennessee from July 19-22, organizers announced earlier this month. PSC is a nonprofit organization that prepares young people — aged 14 to 21 — for law enforcement and other first responder careers, according to the release. Eligible cadets, explorers, their agency mentors and advisors are invited to participate in this event, which will feature training, education, college preparation and career networking.
Participants will have the opportunity to compete in real-world police scenarios, organizers say. Team challenges include active shooter, burglary in progress and felony traffic stops. They may also compete individually in air pistol marksmanship, bike policing and an airsoft tactical course. Training seminars include self-defense, tactical emergency medicine, cybercrime and crime scene investigation. Separate seminars on a variety of policing and leadership topics will be available for adult mentors and advisors. The weekend will also offer a career and college fair to allow participants to meet with representatives of law enforcement agencies, schools and the military.
Representatives of qualifying agencies with cadet or explorer programs are asked to register by June 30. Click here for more information and registration details.
