Leadership symposium will focus on common sense police officer safety

First symposium from Below 100 will offer a facilitated workshop to develop an action plan for safety


THE WOODLANDS, Texas — On November 8-9, Below 100 will present a national symposium on Implementing a Culture of Common Sense Officer Safety, hosted by the Law Enforcement Management Institute of Texas at its facility in The Woodlands, Texas (Houston area).

Below 100 offers a commonsense approach to officer safety, targeting areas of improvement that are under an officer’s control. The training has proved both popular and effective, with many agencies reporting reductions in injuries, crashes and claims, as well as an overall uptick in safety awareness.

This symposium is designed for command level officers and agency administrators. Agency leaders play a critical role in the safety of their personnel. If you’re truly committed to officer safety, you should make plans to attend this workshop – it will inspire and empower you to make needed changes. 

Risk management expert Gordon Graham will deliver the keynote session; the leaders of three agencies that won national awards for comprehensive safety programs built on Below 100 will share their lessons learned; and, on the morning of November 9, a workshop will provide every attendee with an action plan for effectively rolling out a program in their agency. The workshop will be facilitated by John Bostain, the co-owner of Command Presence and the 2011 Trainer of the Year (International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association).

Registration is only $99 and hotel rooms will be available for $95.

The event is made possible with funding from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Those who might have difficulty with department budget restrictions should consider checking with their state traffic safety office. Some have already indicated a willingness to help send personnel to this event.
