Each year we incorporate surprise sessions that are designed to excite the senses of WPA attendees. The purpose is to allow you to experience “events” that unfold in real time, just as officers and other first responders experience in the real world. So be prepared for anything that may “pop up,” “blow up,” “go bang,” or…well, just be prepared and always have your cameras ready to capture the excitement. These “surprises” are based on real-life current events. Believe me, this year we’ve taken the excitement level to a whole new plateau.

*Video recordings and live streamings are permitted during this session.

However, video and/or audio recordings ARE NOT permitted at any time while on academy/NWTC property.
