“The training and technical assistance we received through BJA NTTAC was exceptional. The flexibility with which we were able to craft the format of this training allowed us to efficiently and precisely address the specific crime analysis needs of the Columbia Police Department. Subject matter experts provided in-depth technical support on the various analysis tools and guidance on the theory behind the types of analysis we sought to implement. As a result, the CPD has progressed in researching violent gun crime data to reduce acts of violence in our jurisdiction.”
“The Durham Police Department wanted to express our gratitude to the team at the Bureau of Justice Assistance National Training and Technical Assistance Center, who provided assistance through their associates, the Virginia Center for Police Innovation, in creating a solid foundation for our award winning “Good Neighbor Program.” The insight and guidance catapulted the program from good to excellent and the entire Durham community is better for their efforts!”
“BJA NTTAC's assistance allowed my department to have a starting point in a major re-tooling of our crime analysis program. We have no one with real experience in this area, but we knew that we needed to make changes to improve. Through BJA NTTAC, we were able to make informed decisions as we move forward.”
