P1 Year in Review: Safety behind the wheel
As we come to the close of another year, it is a time of remembrance, reflection and inspiration. While we have many things to be concerned about in Law Enforcement, we should always remember that our career is the most highly trained, educated and professional as it has ever been in its history. It is truly a blessing to be in law enforcement today and despite your particular circumstances, we should all be thankful for the opportunity to give back to our respective communities. After all, we get to do every day what others merely get to watch on television.
2008 did not lack its share of tragedy but through tragedy and despair our profession is striving for improvement. While the leading cause of deaths to law enforcement remain vehicle related, 2008 marked fewer deaths than 2007 and more agencies than ever are committed to training their officers in the area of emergency vehicle operations.
