The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) National Training and Technical Assistance Center (NTTAC) is a free training and technical assistance (TTA) resource available to state, local, and tribal criminal justice agencies to achieve safer communities nationwide. BJA NTTAC provides training and specialized guidance – also known as technical assistance – both in person and virtually on a wide-variety of criminal justice topics. BJA NTTAC will take the time to understand the specific need of the agency and match that need with the right expert to provide TTA.

There are two primary ways that you can work with BJA NTTAC:

  • Request TTA - If you are interested in receiving training or technical assistance from BJA NTTAC, visit the Request TTA page to learn more.
  • Provide TTA - If you want to work with BJA NTTAC and provide TTA services to agencies needing support or assistance, visit the Provide TTA page to learn how.

BJA NTTAC is just one of many avenues through which BJA supports the field. If BJA or BJA NTTAC are unable to fulfill a state, local, or tribal agency’s request, every effort will be made to connect the jurisdiction with another resource or provider of TTA within the Office of Justice Programs, the Department of Justice, or other source. For additional resources to support your organization, check out the current BJA funding opportunities or our Other Federal Resources page.
