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. This two-day forum will bring together law enforcement officers and first responders from across the region including Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Wisconsin, and surrounding states in various educational workshops and exercises focused on real-world training and advancing 21st-century skills. GLLEC will include debriefs on major LE incidents, certified training conducted by highly respected leaders, live fire team skills challenges, a vendor showcase featuring latest industry technologies, and a product innovation center.

“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. Lively workshops, skills-development sessions and team challenges will be led by some of the LE industry’s most experienced experts. The line-up includes…

Keynote Speakers and Classes:
¬ Debrief with Officer Josh Comitale (Troy Police Dept., NY): Officer Survival while Under Fire
¬ Debrief with Sheriff Michael Kent Neal (Monroe County, AR): West Memphis Shootout with Cop-Killing Sovereign Citizens
¬ Class with Chief (ret.) Jeff Chudwin & Commander Edward Mohn: ITOA Tactical Patrol Officer Program
¬ Class with Officer Dustin Mowery (Ohio State University Police): Vehicle Assaults

Dynamic Training Events:
¬ Vehicle Ambush – Fighting to Win: Simulation of a single officer on patrol being ambushed by multiple adversaries.
¬ Officer Rescue: Focus on teamwork, communication skills, TC3 / Care under Fire skills, and accuracy with multiple weapon platforms.
¬ Traverse and Cover: Focus on teamwork, accuracy and positional shooting. A 4-5-person team will negotiate multiple barricades and firing positions.
¬ Active Shooter: Focus on the preparedness of the team in an all too common scenario that LEOs have to deal with in today’s world.
¬ Team vs. Team Challenge: Teams competing against the clock, barricades, and other teams as they contend for bragging rights and honor of being first ever GLLEC Team event winner.

In addition to support from regional agencies and associations, GLLEC has an impressive roster of vendor partners, including Platinum Sponsors – Armor Express, BUSCH PROtective, ClearArmor, and Teijin; Gold Sponsor – DSM Dyneema; Silver Sponsors – 556 Tactical and Martintek U.S.A; and Corporate Sponsors – Ray O’Herron and Super Quick Clean Guns. Interested in becoming a sponsor? Learn more at GLLEC Sponsors.

“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.”
