Our annual training conference hosts approximately 1000 SWAT officers, supervisors and commanders from teams throughout the Western United States. The conference features educational seminars and presentations on emerging trends, tactics, legal issues, leadership and valuable ‘lessons learned’ from after action incident review. We also offer a two day vendor trade show where equipment manufacturers, distributors, and suppliers highlight the latest safety gear, weapons, munitions, clothing, emergency vehicles and technology. The CATO Conference and Vendor Trade Show is one of the few events that bring the police supply vendors, the end users and the executives that approve equipment purchases together in the same room.
