Preventing Officer-involved Collisions (for Police)
- Course Category:
While driving may be considered routine among police officers, it is actually one of the riskiest tasks they undertake on a daily basis. In fact, recent statistics indicate the collision rate of police officers is four times higher than among civilians. More officers die in vehicle collisions than all other workplace-related incidents combined.
Preventing Officer-involved Collisions (for Police) is designed to engage frontline officers in a new level of awareness. Focusing on risk management techniques, human factors, managing distractions, and improving self-awareness, this course will help officers improve their ability to make good decisions while driving.
