TacOps East 2014

As a follow-up to the successful inaugural conference, on Sept. 3–5, 2014 the National Capital Region SWAT Association will host TacOps East Tactical Training Conference and Exposition. This year’s event will take place only a few miles from our nation’s capital at the Marriot Crystal Gateway in Arlington, Va. TacOps East will bring together tactical officers, corrections special operation, hostage negotiators, military personnel, and any other type of law enforcement officer wishing to improve their knowledge and connections.

Last year, the event attracted over 600 officers from more than 22 states. For an article covering last year’s conference, see the Jan-Feb 2014 issue of

This year’s conference will offer more than 50 training tracks from which attendees can choose. Some of the instructor level courses include such courses as Chemical Munitions Instructor (CTS & Defense Technologies), Distraction Device Instructor (CTS & Defense Technologies), Less-Lethal Impact Munitions (CTS & Defense Technologies) and Shotgun Breaching Instructor (CTS) and PepperBall Instructor. The training courses also include two armorer courses, AR-15 Armorer (Bushmaster) and Shotgun Armorer (Remington).

In addition to all the great course offerings and the trade show, the event will host a reception and comedy night for attendees, exhibitors and staff. This includes dinner, drinks and the comedy of John DiResta and John Mulrooney. These are two of the funniest guys you will ever see.

TacOps East is three days of training, networking and face-to-face trade show exchanges. The conference fee, including dinner on the first night and lunch on the second day is $249 (NCRSWAT members) or $299 (non-members). For full course offerings, an up-to-date exhibitor listing, and complete online exhibitor and attendee brochures, please visit the website. We look forward to seeing you at the training conference, and, in the time in between, be safe and stay informed.
