[Bridgeview, IL] Northwestern College this week served as the host location of the Northeast Counterdrug Training Center’s (NCTC) 3-day course on Grant Writing. Law enforcement officers from local, state and federal agencies attended the event which was taught by Denise Schlegel, a frequent contractor for the NCTC. The event was brought to Northwestern College with the assistance of Randy Meyers, the Administrative Director of the South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force as well as a Northwestern College Criminal Justice Instructor. Meyers is also a retired Commander of the Oak Lawn Police Department. The 3-day NCTC Grant Writing course encompassed the concepts of grant development, the components of a grant, fundamentals on researching and identifying funding sources, and the how-to’s of developing and submitting a complete grant proposal.
The Northeast Counterdrug Training Center serves military, state, federal, and local law enforcement officials and community prevention specialists by offering unique counterdrug training courses focused on topics such as operations and interdiction, interrogation, undercover operations, leadership, terrorism, intelligence, and drug demand reduction. Although located in Annville, Pennsylvania where it provides the majority of its training opportunities, conferences, and planning sessions, in 2007 NCTC developed its Mobile Training Teams (MTT) as a result of the growing demand for its specialized training. MTTs effectively deliver NCTC course offerings (such as the Grant Writing course taught this week at Northwestern College) throughout an 18-state region and the District of Columbia. NCTC instructors are subject-matter experts with extensive education and training backgrounds and proven successes.
Northwestern College continues to serve as a resource for the local law enforcement community by providing a venue for numerous training sessions and operations throughout the year.
