This press release is highly misleading as the new NATC camp located near Tulia is unlicensed by the Department of Public Safety Private Security Bureau. They have done a national blitz indicating they are some sort of "licensed and insured" facility yet they are not. NATC is a registered LLC in the State yet they are not licensed as a security company in any other State. The company they mention on their website as being closely affiliate with "SPI" out of California is licensed to operate in that state only according to research done on it.

It is apparent that due to the city needing new businesses that the local government did not know about the requirement to have this place regulated. The type of training that is conducted at the local range with uncertified instructors is not only a unauthorized activity, it is unsafe to the community.

The people need to be made aware of this fact and not be intimidated by the official looking suburban seen driving around town and employees wearing black jackets with the word "instructor" and a army style patch being visible. The place was built to lure 10 or more people from around the country each month whom each pay several thousand dollars to receive training that has not been reviewed or accredited by any agency, state or otherwise.

The Department of Public Safety Private Security Bureau has been advised to this company attempting to operate in the State of Texas and will be handling the matter.

Amen to that. We have seen these guys at the local eating establishments and figured something didnt look right. There is one guy who moved here with his kids that I heard they screwed over and no longer works for them. They need to shut them down

They probably would of been better going somewhere else. Who would pay that kind of money to play around for 30 days ? I thought they was licensed the way they come across.

Knew these guys were not legit when they ran around trying to look all official and it was all not true. They did look supsicious but I think they buddied up with the cops so they could work on ripping people off.

I went to their class they had for school violence and they had a guy from California there who was pretty smart. Took a tour of the facility and can't say I was too impressed. For the amount of money they plan in charging folks I did not see the value. Have to agree with the instructor jackets being a little over the top. I thought they were all ex cops or something.

These guys are clowns. Knew that from day one. It doesn't take a genius to figure that out based on how they act like they are something they obviously are not. Typical wanna be cops who have not the experience or education in any practical field of law enforcement

NATC is not a security compony. And "These clowns" do not have any interest of being cops. And experience and education they have 100 times better then law informant.

Based on the misspellings I wonder who wrote that last post from where these guys came from. One interesting fact was a simple check via pow network on the guys who they listed as being instructors with the school. main guys record doesn't even show up

You can contact me at any time and I will answer all questions you may have. Spreading lies and making unsupportive statements behind a fictitious name is a sign of cowardice. You can contact me at the (800) number on the NATC website, my extension is 1.
