Regional Training & Networking Events

Over the last 22 years, NACOLE has provided focused training and technical assistance specific to civilian oversight and police accountability.  With an ever-growing demand for information and guidance on oversight,  NACOLE has committed itself to providing more training and networking events throughout the year.  With the tools and knowledge it has gathered, NACOLE works with oversight practitioners and community members to develop and implement distinct and region-specific events that are free to those who attend.

The regional training and networking events assist NACOLE in its continued effort to develop and deliver training, offer technical support and assistance, and provide an enhanced knowledge-base of emerging and best practices.  Please check the website often to see if there is an event taking place near you.
