June 2020 – Updated course offerings from our partners at WSM Trainers Now posted on our Resources Page

NECUSA connects you with training opportunities across the region.  We brought you the opportunity to hear from experts in the field:

The Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) Department of Public Safety, in conjunction with NECUSA, hosted an “Active Shooter Red Flags” presentation given by Special Agent John Skillestad, FBI.

Site Protection Through Observational Techniques, a program that trains public safety personnel to improve their observational techniques by using a four-step ongoing screening process that includes increasing protective awareness, identifying preoperational behaviors, evaluating, and taking action.

Look for more networking and training opportunities in 2021.

WHAT IS NECUSA?

NECUSA has become an organization that is more than merely the sum of its parts. It has the culture of a large extended family in which members may go for long periods of time with no contact but can pick up the telephone at anytime and be received warmly by the person on the other end.

The primary focus of NECUSA is two-fold: to deliver cost-effective, high quality professional development opportunities within the northeast region and to create opportunities for networking with colleagues, both in person and electronically. Many of us have forged life long friendships that started over a discussion about parking or patrol work or a cold drink after a round of golf.
