Tactical and Traffic Center


The Tactical & Traffic Center delivers a variety of training which includes web-based, traditional classroom, and hands on skills training. The trainers in this center focus on firearms, physical fitness, subject control and arrest techniques, SWAT tactics, officer safety skills, patrol level drug enforcement, traffic crash investigation and reconstruction, speed-measuring instrument training, and drivers training. Basic, advanced, and instructor level courses are offered. 

 Another aspect of this center is the technical assistance offered to agencies. While offering assistance to an agency, tactical & traffic trainers are able to identify specific training needs, engage in data collection and interpretation, and maintain “real world” experience. Consequently, the training offered by the center combines the practical and academic. 

 The Tactical & Traffic Center also offers enrollment in the North Carolina Justice Academy’s Tactical Training Certificate Program and/or the Traffic Enforcement and Investigation Certificate Program. These programs are designed to recognize the achievement of law enforcement professionals who have dedicated themselves to various levels of tactical and/or traffic training. Participants who complete each program will have mastered topic areas in the specific tactical or traffic field and achieved a high level of professionalism for themselves and their agencies.
