The Executive Board is responsible for the planning, organizing and execution of this event.
It is the goal of this board that all attendees receive a maximum return on their investment so they may improve their rifle program and increase the safety of the citizens they serve.
To do this we must conduct a fair, equitable, and challenging, yet safe competition that tests individual skill, organizational training, and the competitor’s equipment during law enforcement relevant evolutions of fire. It is our objective for competitors to view this segment of the event as a training opportunity first and foremost, and a competition secondly. In this competition there will be no losers as every participant is a winner simply by testing themselves and their equipment against their peers, and then learning from their shortcomings and mistakes. In-fact, we view these participants and their agencies as leaders, because good leaders are always looking to improve individually and organizationally.
Secondly, we must execute a well organized educational conference that includes top notch instructors covering a variety of subjects, along with a concurrent vendor exhibition in an effort to give the attendee access to the most contemporary information and resources that can benefit them individually, and more importantly, benefit their organizations patrol rifle program.
We thank you for your interest in this event and promise our best efforts in attaining our stated goals.
We invite and challenge you to join with us for competition, training, and camaraderie at the NPRC in Detroit, Michigan.
Good luck, and may God Bless America and those who protect her.
