Messages




from the Attorney General

As law enforcement officers, you willingly put your lives on the line every day to protect others. At the
North Carolina Justice Academy, we are committed to providing the resources you need to carry out your
responsibilities and serve communities across our state.
At the Justice Academy, we work constantly to review and revise training and instruction to help law
enforcement agencies respond to the issues our communities are facing today. These issues go beyond
crime – they involve mental health, substance use disorder, and community trust, among other pressing
problems our state is facing. It’s our job to make sure you have the technology and tools to address these
varied public safety needs, as well as the support you need to take care of yourselves and your colleagues.
As North Carolina’s Attorney General, I share your commitment to keeping our communities safe. I will continue to do everything
in my power to support you and develop further solutions to protect North Carolinians. This requires all of us working together – if
you have ideas that can improve public safety and help people in our state, please share them with the Justice Academy or me.
Thank you for your service.
Very truly yours,


JOSH STEIN, Attorney General

from the Academy Director


Criminal justice professionals value the exercise of planning. Agencies use data to plan the deployment
of officers in geographic areas and telecommunicators for specific shifts. Chiefs and Sheriffs spend
considerable time meeting with citizens to build relationships and receive feedback on quality of life issues.
Officers plan for the rigors of their careers by selecting training and maintaining physical fitness levels.
Simultaneously, criminal justice professionals are ever cognizant of the unexpected. From natural
disasters to intentional acts of crime and violence, our agencies and officers are faced with unique and
significant challenges on a regular basis. Many of these challenges are unforeseen and unprecedented.
They are forced to respond.
Beginning in early 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic thrust immense challenges on our world. Most of us had to adjust facets of
our lives, don face coverings, and restrict regular activities. Criminal justice officers were not able to social distance or work from home.
Officers still had to respond to calls and investigate crimes; telecommunicators had to continue coordinating the response to those
calls, and detention officers had to continue being vigilant in keeping detention centers operating safely and securely. As usual, they
have responded admirably.
The Justice Academy has also done its best to respond to these challenging times. Our Training section has continued its work
of revising current curricula, while researching and developing new training materials. One of those critical projects is the complete
revision of the Basic Law Enforcement Training curriculum. We remain on track to complete the development of that curriculum
by the end of 2021, with pilot delivery to begin immediately thereafter. Our development and online delivery of mandated in-service
training continued, with a record high of completions in 2020. Our podcast series, ‘NCJA 10-14’ covered content on the opioid
epidemic, cold case investigations, procedural justice, and human trafficking. Training staff also converted lesson plans for several
courses into a virtual delivery platform. The Support Services section continued its work in keeping facilities safe to ensure the
continuation of training. It also oversaw the completion of the Residence Hall C renovation on our Salemburg campus. This 3-story
residence hall is now open, with new furniture and amenities.
The Justice Academy is also responding to the many emerging (non-COVID) issues facing the law enforcement field. Governor
Cooper’s Task Force for Racial Equity in Criminal Justice, the NC Sheriffs’ Association, the NC Association of Chiefs of Police, and
others have all published recommendations affecting officer training. Of particular focus for us are the recommendations in the use of
force and de-escalation arena. Our training staff is working hard to make available industry-leading training on these topics in 2021.
Thank you for responding so professionally in service to your communities. The Justice Academy is committed to responding to
support you.
Stay safe and in touch,
Best Regards,

TREVOR ALLEN, Director 1
