An organization seeking a more hands-on training. “The idea was created by Eric Matson, then a detective with the Monroe County Police Department. Eric incorporated different agencies and individuals with the same drive and enthusiasm toward more affordable training that would incorporate the hands-on experience. In May of 2001, following several months of organizing, developing by-laws, and assembling instructors, the first conference was held at the Western Wisconsin Technical College. During this conference, the first elections were held and Eric was selected as the first President of the organization.”

They organize conferences with a variety of substantive training in weapons use and tactics, correctional (CERT), medic, and tactical team training. “Many organizations have volunteered, supported, and donated to the development of this fine organization merely established for affordable hands-on tactical training.”
