Welcome to America's oldest ongoing patrol rifle and active assailant training event. NPRC FLIER - PDF


The NPRC started in 2000 and is now in its 22nd year and will be held on October 14, 2023 at the Multi-Lakes Conservation Association in Commerce Twp. MI. 


The NPRC brings together 1st responders from around the country to train in a competitive live-fire training environment that offers an unmatched opportunity to collaborate, network and learn ways to improve individual and organizational readiness for violent encounters. The NPRC is intended for the patrol officer as they are generally the first to the fight. It is open to LEO’s and Military (reserves and retired welcome), select security personal and fire or medical personnel who are serving in an armed position within a SWAT team or Rescue Task Force (must be pistol and rifle qualified by your organization). 


The NPRC is $99.00 per officer (MCOLES registered for 302 Funds) if you register before June 30, 2023 ($119.00 afterward) and includes lunch and dinner.


NEW For 2023 - NPRC OPEN 


Qualified citizens are now welcome to come train with their 1st responders. Click here for eligibility rules.  




The NPRC OPEN is a separate competitive training event that will run concurrently with the NPRC outlined above. The courses of fire (COF’s) are the same for both events. The COF’s are crafted after officer involved shootings that are derived from Chudwin Award nominations and the NPRC’s Patrol Rifle Engagement Survey data base. The events start at 8am and go until 7pm (shooting from 9a-4p / reception, debrief, dinner, prizes from 4p-7p). Lunch (brat's, chips, pop) and dinner (prime rib or chicken, sides & drinks) are provided along with thousands of dollars in prizes from our sponsors and vendors who participate in a concurrent live fire exhibition. Finally, the Open division participants are invited to sit through a debriefing provided by the yet to be named 2023 Chudwin Award recipient. The Open cost is $129.00 per shooter if you register before June 30, 2023 ($159.00 afterward).

  • SPECIAL NPRC OPEN offer: Any citizen who sponsors an eligible 1st responder for the NPRC before June 30, 2023 for $99.00, only pays $99.00 for their slot in the NPRC OPEN.

These events offer a one of a kind opportunity to immerse yourself in low intensity seminar based education and/or high intensity (live-fire) patrol rifle training, not to mention a very large concurrent vendor show to aid in your ongoing product/service research.


Seats are limited for each event. Be sure to register early to get a seat. We look forward to seeing you at this year’s events! 


For the fourth straight year the NPRC is partnering with the North American Active Assailant Conference to help bring you 3-days of the best active assailant training possible.

The NAAAC, which is now in its 6th year, will be held on June 7-9 2023 in Troy MI. The NAAAC provides firsthand collaborative debriefs from representatives of the lead law enforcement and fire service agencies on some of the largest active assailant incidents in the world. The NAAAC is intended for law enforcement, fire department, ambulance service, hospital and emergency management personnel.

  • NOTE: Scheduling issues prohibited us for abutting these events (NPRC & NAAAC) dates in 2023. Our intent is to do so once again in 2024.  




The NPRC has a 13 year tradition of raising money to support those who have served the greater good. We raise money by raffling a rifle that is graciously donated by a sponsor. One hundred percent of the proceeds are given directly to a representative of the cause we are supporting as the conferences last order of business. In the past, we have supported Brotherhood For The Fallen,  Colors of HerosMission 22, the Law Enforcement Legal Defense FundMarine Corps Scholarship FoundationHire Our Hero’sAmericansnipers.org, The Michigan Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund1st / 24th Marines Memorial Fund, and families of fallen officers Patrick O’RourkeLarry Nehasil and Chief Chris Kyle. Please help us in supporting these worthy causes. 


Our 2021 benefactor is Call for Backup. Our good friends at Daniel Defense are donating a rifle for us to raffle off at the NAAAC and NPRC so we can raise money for Call for Backup. Thank you Daniel Defense! We also want to say a special thank you to Mike the Cop for connecting us with Call for Backup.   


Humanizing the Badge’s unique Call For Backup Suicide Awareness and Prevention Campaign seeks to teach emergency services personnel how to help one another – and themselves – deal with the unique stresses of their chosen profession. If you are struggling, it’s time to Call for Backup!
