Keynote Speaker

George P. Belsky, Jr. has an extensive military and law enforcement career. As an instructor he has conducted and facilitated training on a variety of topics including leadership, wellness and resilience, ethics, operational techniques, and use of force, to military and law enforcement personnel in both domestic and international environments. 

A 1984 graduate of the US Military Academy at West Point, George served on active duty as a rifle platoon leader, anti-tank platoon leader, company executive officer, assistant operations/air officer, and as a staff officer at the US Army Infantry School. Leaving active duty after five years for law enforcement, he served as a captain in the US Army Reserve for seven years. He is a graduate of the Infantry Officer Basic and Advanced Courses, and the US Army Airborne School.

George’s career as a criminal investigator/special agent spanned over twenty years with both the US Postal Inspection Service and the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF). He retired from ATF as the Special Agent in Charge (Senior Executive Service) of the ATF Newark Field Division in January 2017. George served as a field agent, instructor, program manager, supervisory special agent, second level manager, and law enforcement executive. His only non-operational assignment was as an instructor and later program manager at the ATF National Academy. He served as the primary Use of Force instructor, and his additional duties included firearms instructor, field operations instructor and tactics instructor. He also led in the development and writing of the ATF Control and Arrest Techniques program, an agency-wide program on less lethal subject control and threat management. In this capacity he conducted extensive research on the physiological, cognitive, and psychological effects of stress on combat performance.
