The Vehicle Incidents and Issues topic deals with issues related to specialized patrols like motorcycle units as well as vehicular risks and challenges to law enforcement, including vehicle crashes involving police and vehicular assaults against officers. From single-car traffic accidents to high-speed pursuits, most law enforcement injuries and fatalities occur in, or immediately outside of, a police officer’s vehicle.
Doug Wyllie sits down with Captain Travis Yates to talk about the most important asset that officers have, their eyes. Officers should be getting their vision checked on a regular basis to ensure that their eyesight will not affect their driving, particularly at night.
Dave Smith sits down with Chief Jeff Chudwin to discuss the concept of "speed kills" both in driving and in our response times. We live in a world where safety is an illusion. He reminds us that we do not control the events around us, we can only control our response.
