Dispatch from the Criminal Justice Conference

Northcentral Technical College hosted the annual 2012 Criminal Justice Conference in Wausau, WI on March 23 – 24, 2012.  The keynote speaker was Gary Klugiewicz who presented a four hour presentation on Professionalism:  Staying Physically, Legally, and Emotionally Safer.

The program focused on Verbal Defense & Defense verbal and physical tactics for increasing office safety.  The conference was attended by first, second, third, and fourth seminar criminal justice students from various Wisconsin technical colleges.

The presentation was very interactive, both verbally and physically.  The attendees (left) are practicing the Thinker Stance, meant to look relaxed while preparing the officer to defend against a sudden assault.  The students also practiced their Tactical 8 Step and Tactical 5 Step Tactics.
