Training and Technical Assistance

CNA works directly with justice agencies to develop and implement customized, evidence-based training and technical assistance (TTA) that improves performance, and maximizes impact. Our diverse and experienced team of analysts, practitioners, and subject matter experts manage and support a wide range of TTA—from targeted assistance for individual agencies to complex national TTA initiatives that promote sharing of best practices broadly. We deliver TTA in many formats: curriculum development, facilitation and training, distance learning, conferences and workshops, publications, field-based assistance, peer learning, capacity assessments, on-site assistance by subject matter experts, program evaluation, online tools, and websites.

CNA designed the Officer Readiness Assessment Tool, which assesses a law enforcement agency’s wellness program and provides them with tailored methods and resources to immediately implement improvements.

Our team has the curriculum development knowledge and experience needed to execute programs at a high level.
