 NCJTC History

Fox Valley Technical College (FVTC) received its first grant from the Department of Justice’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) in 1993 and launched a series of national training programs designed to provide law enforcement, prosecutors and child protection professionals with the skills they need to effectively respond to incidents of child physical and sexual abuse.  Our unique and highly acclaimed approach brings subject matter experts together with participants who work in the same field while providing a wide range of technological and educational resources to support their efforts This approach has allowed us to bring instructors into the classroom that are unmatched in their knowledge, skills, and abilities; and to offer information and materials that are of the highest standards and quality possible to students as part of the overall training experience. 
The tremendous success of our training model and the outcomes for students, organizations and communities has led to the development of many new programs initiatives over the last two decades. FVTC has been called upon to develop programs in response to tragic school shooting incidents, to combat prevailing problems confronting the criminal justice community such as gang violence, serious habitual offenders and drug use, or in response to nationwide initiatives and priorities such as the AMBER Alert program, the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force program and Project Safe Childhood.  Over the past two decades FVTC has trained over 130,000 criminal justice and child protection professionals at locations in all 50 states and every U.S. Territory.  You may recognize some of the following training programs, many of which are still offered today:
  • Chief Executive Officer Safe Schools Forum
  • Child Abuse Investigative Techniques
  • Child Abuse & Exploitation Team Investigative Process
  • Child Fatality Investigative Techniques
  • Child Sexual Exploitation Investigative Techniques
  • Comprehensive Approaches to Dealing with Serious Habitual Offenders
  • Gang/Drug Policy Training Programs
  • Managing Juvenile Operations
  • Police Operations Leading to Improved Children and Youth Services (POLICY I & II)
  • Protecting Children Online
  • Protecting Children Online for Undercover Officers
  • Protecting Children Online for Prosecutors
  • Responding to Missing and Abducted Children
  • Safe Schools Interagency Team Planning Process
  • School Resource Officer Leadership Training
Note: For a listing of current training programs please see our Training page
FVTC has also received federal funding from the Department of Justice to coordinate some of the nation’s largest annual conferences.  These include:
  • The AMBER Alert National Conference
  • The Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force National Conference
  • The National Law Enforcement Training on Child Exploitation
  • The National Strategy Conference on Combating Child Exploitation
  • The OVC Mass Violence & Emergency National Training Conference
  • The Project Safe Childhood National Conference
Over our 20 year history, FVTC established major training centers or program areas to support major Department of Justice initiatives.  These include:
In 2005, FVTC established a Washington, DC office to support our partner agencies and organizations as well as to develop several national training and technical assistance programs including the Missing & Exploited Children’s Program (MECP)  and the National Training & Technical Assistance Center (NTTAC) for the Bureau of Justice Assistance. 
The National Criminal Justice Training Center was established in 2012 as a non-profit umbrella organization to support programs offered nationally by FVTC and to provide greater access to all of our services. This includes not only programs funded through federal grants but programs that can be customized and offered locally on a cost recovery basis. This approach affords us the opportunity to more effectively coordinate training, technical assistance and other support services through one website and toll-free number.  By bringing together our extensive the training materials and course offerings under one site, we make it easier for the people we serve to find what they need and readily access a wealth of resources. 
We are proud of our history and accomplishments and the many opportunities that have been afforded to us by our many partners.  As an educational institution, our ability to provide exemplary training and educational services through our non-profit status ensures that quality of services we provide is the goal, not the cost to you or the profit to us.  Our student evaluations and national impact assessment studies clearly demonstrate the effectiveness of our training.  The impact of our courses on making significant, positive change in communities is evident from the myriad letters we receive long after the training courses have ended. 
Through NCJTC, FVTC will continue its longstanding tradition of offering regional training, and will also offer customized technical assistance to support students, agencies and communities after they have received training.  We have expanded beyond traditional classroom training and offer train-the-trainer courses, distance and on-line training programs and hybrid courses which offer a combination of adult learning strategies. 
We encourage you to take the time to explore the new site. We look forward to hearing from you. Please contact us via email at or give us a call at 855-866-2582.
