Special Notes for the Tempe GOT Only

The Motorola Solutions Foundation, the charitable arm of Motorola Solutions, Inc., is providing support for this training through a grant to the G.R.E.A.T. Foundation, Inc. (GFI). GFI is providing paid lodging for attendees of this G.R.E.A.T. Officer Training (GOT) who must travel more than 50 miles to the training site. In addition, GFI is also offering travel assistance scholarships that can reimburse attendees for transportation costs to and from the training, including airfare. This special lodging and transportation assistance, made possible by the generosity of Motorola Solutions and GFI, will greatly reduce agency costs for sending officers to this training.

Agencies are still responsible for paying GOT tuition fees of $395 per applicant (plus a credit card surcharge if payment is made by credit card). Fees are due prior to attending the classroom portion of the GOT. It is not necessary to submit the tuition payment before beginning the prerequisite online training. These fees cover only a portion of the total cost of training, the rest of which is supported through a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. The applicant’s agency is responsible for any other necessary costs, including meal and incidental expenses and any transportation costs not covered by a GFI travel scholarship.

Detailed information on the special assistance provided for this training, including the process for applying for GFI travel assistance scholarships, will be provided upon receipt of your application for this training event. See the "Program Costs" section of this website for more information about overall Program costs.
