National ICAT Conference
Tuesday, January 24, 2023, 8:30 AM to Wednesday, January 25, 2023, 5:00 PM PDT
Category: Events

Since PERF launched the Integrating Communications, Assessment, and Tactics (ICAT) training in 2016, agencies across 33 states and Canada have taught their officers ICAT. PERF has continually updated the training material by adding new case studies, refining PowerPoint slides, and creating a seventh module, “Step Up and Step In.” To keep ICAT trainers updated on the latest materials and training practices, PERF is holding an in-person conference in San Diego on January 24-25. At this conference, PERF and experienced ICAT trainers will share updates to the training program, discuss model fidelity, and ask agencies to share lessons they’ve learned as they’ve implemented ICAT.

There will be no charge to attend this conference. Agencies may want to send ICAT instructors, training academy leaders, and agency leaders to the conference. Both agencies that have already implemented the ICAT training program and those still considering implementation will find this conference beneficial.

This conference will discuss training strategies and some of the training material for those who have already been trained in ICAT. For those who have not yet received ICAT training, PERF and the San Diego Police Department will host a day-and-a-half, train-the-trainer session on the Thursday and Friday following the conference.
