    Nowhere else will you receive this assortment of specialized training for the Texas Peace Officer! Through informative General Sessions, often taught by National Speakers, to specialized topics in the concurrent training sessions, you will gain valuable information on technology, issues and problems facing Texas Peace Officers today. You also will not want to miss the opportunity to meet with your law enforcement colleagues to share and discuss issues that you encounter every day.

    In addition to the abundance of training hours, you will also get to shop in one convenient spot. With a record number of vendors exhibiting at the conference, you are able to learn about the new and innovative products that are available for peace officers.

    While you are busy getting training, your family can enjoy the fun events we have planned for them.
