Exceptional Training for Law Enforcement Professionals

    What People are Saying about ICT:
    During the past six months, I have worked closely with Ms. McDermott, who provided extensive training for our department. She provided team-building training for the management team and ethics training to all line staff. She also provided technical assistance in the area of arming and was especially helpful to me in creating new policies and procedures for the department. Ms. McDermott is very dedicated to the field of probation and has an outstanding work ethic.

    “The answers to the real problems we face in restorative justice and public safety are never found in training manuals. Therefore, it is always a mistake to think we can teach people what to think. The goal, instead, should be to provide them with the tools they need to think through a problem, develop an ethical solution, and act in the face of profound stress. This is what ICT does. This is who we are.”
    – Jamie (Donna) McDermott
