Northeast Counterdrug Training Center

Welcome to NCTC

Our Mission

The Northeast Counterdrug Training Center provides training in prevention and counterdrug activities to law enforcement agencies and community-based organizations in the Northeastern United States working to reduce the availability of illicit drugs, improve public safety, and diminish drug use in our society.

Founded in 1999 in accordance with the provisions outlined in the 1999 Defense Appropriations Act, the Northeast Counterdrug Training Center (NCTC) is operated by the Pennsylvania National Guard, with a campus at Fort Indiantown Gap, Pennsylvania. The facility is capable of housing and training law enforcement and drug demand reduction professionals at no cost to their parent agencies. The sites provide a modern and professional environment for training, conferences, and planning sessions, which are essential to the counterdrug community.

NCTC is staffed by National Guard Soldiers and Airmen who provide infrastructure management. Classes are taught by subject matter experts with extensive education, training, and experience with proven success in their areas of expertise. This military and civilian partnership is the cornerstone of the NCTC success story.



CALEA® Accreditation Public Comment Portal

The purpose of this public portal is to receive comments regarding the Northeast Counterdrug Training Center's compliance with CALEA standards, engagement in the service community, delivery of public safety services, and overall candidacy for accredited status. These comments can be in the form of commendations or concerns. The overall intent of the accreditation process is to provide the Northeast Counterdrug Training Center with information to support continuous improvement, as well as foster the pursuit of professional excellence.

IMPORTANT: CALEA is not an investigatory body and subsequently the public portal should not be used to submit information for such purposes.  Additionally, there will be no response other than acknowledgement to submissions; however, the information will be considered in context to its relevancy to compliance with standards and the tenets of CALEA® Accreditation.
