BURNS FLAT, Okla. Sirens blare, tires squeal and unsuspecting passengers brace themselves as trooper Jack Rhinehart takes a 90-degree turn after just a few pumps of his brakes.

The weight of the car shifts, the back end swerves out, the tires screech. Rhinehart remains calm. The back of his hands never move from his thighs, his fingers lightly on the wheel, as he steers the patrol car through a precision driving course that teaches state troopers from across the nation how to control their cars in turns at high speeds.
