Training for touch during emergency driving

Submitted by:
Officer David Wayne Walters, Turner (OR) PD


While training new recruits about emergency/pursuit driving, park your patrol unit, blindfold the recruit and have him/her practice turning on various emergency lights and equipment by touch, without looking down at the controls or switches. Mix it up by calling out certain lights, sirens, radio, etc. until the officers know where each control switch is by second nature. You'll be surprised how it cuts down on driving accidents, especially at night!
