2020 itoa conference canceled

The annual training conference advances the education and professionalism of law enforcement officers, particularly those in emergency response functions. The first conference drew 160 officers and subsequent conferences have drawn more, with the 2019 conference attended by 700 officers throughout the United States. The annual conference is typically held in November in west suburban Chicago.

Planning for this year's I.T.O.A.’s Annual Training Conference is nearing completion. The conference will be held on November 22-24, 2020.

Limited Registration

Remember that registration is limited, therefore registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration must include your payment (check, charge card information, or department purchase order).

There will be no registrations accepted after this date and there are No Walk-Ins at the conference. A confirmation will be mailed to you upon receipt of the above. Again register early, so that you won’t miss this outstanding training event.



(You must be a sworn law enforcement officer to attend the conference.) Register early!

Conference Format

As in past years, conference attendees will be able to attend special presentations on Sunday afternoon. Also, vendors will be set up on Sunday afternoon to participate in Vendor Appreciation Night which will follow the presentations. The day is capped by the I.T.O.A.’s Hospitality Room. Don’t miss this first day of the conference.

Monday begins with our annual business meeting that includes an election of officers. After the opening speaker and the main presentation, attendees again will enjoy the conference’s break-out sessions that last 90 minutes each. These sessions include a variety of topics for the attendees to choose from. Seating at these sessions is on a first-come, first-served basis. The evening includes our annual training banquet with another outstanding speaker and of course the always friendly and informative hospitality room.

Tuesday will continue with the break-out sessions by our outstanding presenters.

Don't Miss Out

Our organization continues to grow and our conference is always at maximum capacity. Don’t take a chance of missing out on this great training opportunity, register early.


We look forward to seeing you there.
