Welcome to LEEP
The National Association of Chiefs of Police, working in conjunction with Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Eastern Florida State College, and a vast network of tactical training professionals nationwide wants YOU to stay safe.
Our goal is to provide officers at the local, regional and, eventually, national level the BEST training available at NO COST or at a DEEPLY DISCOUNTED COST. Our internal classes are mostly FREE to officers while our nationally acclaimed GUEST TRAINERS have deeply discounted their standard training rates in order to serve our men and women of the thin blue line. Sponsors and companies (featured on the 'Support LEEP' page) help to offset the costs of bringing in world class trainers and providing necessary training equipment!
Training Classes include:
Classes offered at our facility are not limited to firearms related courses but include appropriate use of taser, baton, verbal instruction and de-escalation, as well as courses in leadership, body language, traffic stops, hand-to-hand engagement, defensive tactics and more. The goal is to augment officer training in areas that will save officers’ lives and the lives of civilians, as well. The goal - first, last and always - is that YOU go home safely at the end of your shift.
The LEEP program formally launched in 2019 with the June visit of retired FBI Agent Edmundo Mireles. In addition to his presentations at the facility, one to civilians and one (free) to law enforcement, our trainers developed a number of live fire exercises based on Agent Mireles’ lessons regarding surviving a firefight.
Although NACOP training now has a name and a partnership with FDLE and EFSC, our trainers have been teaching tactics and strategies to law enforcement for many years!
