During the week of July 7th thru the 11th, 2008, NOVA Principles completed its 7th N.O.V.A. Instructor Certification Seminar held here in Orem, Utah.  We had (3) officers from Sandy City, (2) officers from Pleasant Grove, (1) officer from Orem City, (2) officers from Cache County Sheriff’s Office, and a Behavior Specialist teacher from the Alpine School District certify as our newest N.O.V.A. Instructors.  Welcome aboard!

We welcome Cache County Sheriff’s Office as the newest Agency to join the N.O.V.A. Principles team.  We are excited to have you and know you will enjoy teaching the N.O.V.A. Principles program.  In all, we now have N.O.V.A. being taught in (13) Utah cities.

We will surely miss Officer Michael Palmer from Sandy City Police Department, who recently moved to Missouri to join a Police ageny there.  With any luck, Missouri may soon be the second State to teach N.O.V.A.  I will keep you all posted on this hopeful event.  Good luck Michael!
