Reviews from Organizations Who Have Worked With TNT Justice Consultants
“We just recently had another successful Special Constable Training Course with TNT. Being able to deliver remote training with such important and foundational content is extremely challenging but TNT once again has executed!
A special thanks to the program instructors for their patience and commitment, but also for fostering a learning experience and culture like no other. The instructors are incredible ambassadors for TNT and the policing vocation. Well done!”
“The University of Toronto Campus Police at the St. George Campus have been clients of TNT Justice Consultants for the past three years. They have provided us with orientation, refresher and other topical sessions that have assisted and situated our members to provide enhanced service to the university community.
TNT created these courses with our input and designed them specifically to address the uniqueness of our community policing model. Relevant sections pertaining to special constable training found within Bill 68, the Comprehensive Ontario Police Services Act (2019), were included in these sessions, helping us meet the mandatory training required for the appointment of a special constable.”
“TNT has provided exceptional support as we have rolled out Implicit Association Testing (IAT) across a number of groups and areas within the organization. They provide a full spectrum of support, down to helping interpret individual results, and identifying potential bias mitigation strategies. The team is always available, always approachable, and knows their stuff. It’s never a question of whether they can support, but how. End-to-end support and expertise at all levels!”
