Law enforcement officers are subjected to daily hazards, which require critical driving, and difficult decision-making skills. Your department’s ability to provide proper training is key to the safety of your law enforcement officers and your community as a whole. Traditional classroom training approaches, which focus solely on vehicle control and do not fully engage trainees, fall short. In order to improve decision-making skills, drivers must be exposed to dangerous situations, become familiar with potential risks and threats, and have the opportunity to practice appropriate responses.
