The NWGIA offers several professional, continuing education courses as well as being a major sponsor/organizer for collaboration between Law Enforcement, Probation, Corrections, Prosecutors and others entities in the Criminal Justice community that work in the field of Criminal Street Gangs.

2021 Training Symposium Date Change

After many hours of discussions with our staff and the venue, we have decided that in the best interest of our attendees and our desire to host a successful training event, it was necessary to move the dates to AUGUST 16th through AUGUST 20th, 2021.

The decision was not made lightly but we felt it allows for more time to allow for the COVID plague to be brought under control to the point we can have a safe and positive training experience.

There are some extra activities the NWGIA staff are working on that we will be excited to announce once finalized. As always, the material, speakers and overall training experience offered will be second to none and we hope to see you all there.

**NOTE** If you are currently registered for the event, your registration will be automatically moved to the August dates. If you cannot attend, but someone can go in your place, just let us know. If you cannot attend and need a refund, please contact us. All inquiries and notifications need to go to

Additionally we will send out links and instructions related to the hotel reservation process shortly once those are finalized.

We appreciate the continued patience and support of our community of criminal justice and social service partners.

From all of the Staff and Executive Board at the NWGIA, we look forward to providing once again the leading edge training speakers, topics and relevant information to enhance your officer safety, investigations, intelligence operations and general knowledge of criminal gang activity to ensure successful prosecution, public education and prevention and intervention.

We want to thank the Kalispel Tribe and Northern Quest Resort & Casino. Without them we wouldn’t be able to provide the level of training and scholarships to small agencies. -Brad Richmond & The Executive Board
