CENTRAL LAKE, MI, July 25, 2017 – A premier industry event, the Great Lakes Law Enforcement Challenge (GLLEC) will officially kick-off this coming September 10th through the 11th at the Shanty Creek Resort and Davis Shooting Range in northern Michigan.

“The Great Lakes Law Enforcement Challenge, in partnership with the Great Lakes Tactical Associations, was established to foster the exchange of information between agencies and association members,” stated Chris Giolitti, Vice President of the Michigan Tactical Officers Association (MTOA). “This forum will help with the creation of vital standards for training and provide an affordable opportunity to the law enforcement community to gain top-notch instruction and up-to-date information on emerging trends and the latest innovative tools/resources available. At its core, this is an officer survival training event – focused on critical aspects such as active shooter incidents, vehicle assaults/ambush, officer rescue, effective police response and tactics, and the mission-critical equipment that support officer performance and protection. MTOA is thrilled to be a sponsor of this inaugural gathering and we look forward to collaborating with participants to ensure its success.”

This free event is open to active law enforcement officers and first responders only. Interested parties are invited to submit their request to be considered for participation in a single or team format by registering at the GLLEC Registration Page.

“The Ohio Tactical Officers Association (OTOA) is proud to sponsor officers who are attending this instrumental training and competitive event,” said Lt. Wade McQueen of Hamilton Police Dept. and Director of Competitive Events for OTOA. “While some may argue about the world being a scarier place, the facts show that violent crime is increasing and the brazen tactics of criminals are constantly changing. As officers, we must be able to respond effectively and the more prepared we are to recognize and address the threats, the better we can deal with them. When we get an opportunity like the Great Lakes Law Enforcement Challenge to help our members refine their skills, we’re excited to move full speed ahead. This two-day training event will challenge participants and help sharpen valuable skills that we all need. The amount of knowledge to be attained is unlike in any other environment, except actual mission deployment. This is as close as you will get to the real-world experience.”
