Below 100 Intensive & Train-the-Trainer | Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police

Below 100 Intensive & Train-the-Trainer

Richmond, VA | February 24, 2017 | VACP Trainings

Presented by the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police in partnership with the Virginia Highway Safety Office.

The "Below 100 Program" is an initiative that aims to reduce line of duty deaths to below 100 per year — a number that has not been seen since 1943.

In 1974, the all-time high year for officer deaths, 278 were killed in the line of duty. Innovations in training, emergency medicine and vehicles, as well as the development of ballistic armor, all contributed to bring this number down. We’ve averaged about 150 officers killed per year in the last ten years. Together, we can bring that number to below 100.

Five key tenets have been identified by which we can improve officer safety — areas where we can make a difference:

  1. Wear your belt.
  2. Wear your vest.
  3. Watch your speed.
  4. WIN — What's Important Now?
  5. Remember: Complacency Kills!

Below 100 isn’t about statistics. It’s about each and every officer, trainer and supervisor taking individual and collective responsibility for the decisions and actions that contribute to safety. For those in a leadership position, Below 100 means supporting a culture of safety throughout your department. Make doing the right thing so ingrained in your personnel that it becomes the norm and not the exception. Just as importantly, hold accountable those who stray outside what should be common sense. Often, a private word with a misguided officer is all it takes to correct his or her misperception. Below 100 is committed to providing you the tools and resources you need to make a culture of safety thrive throughout your department.

Finally, Below 100 is a challenge that recognizes each officer death as a tragedy. It’s our duty to face down death and protect the innocent when called to do so. It’s a fact: Good cops will die each year. But working together—and only by working together—we can keep our streets and ourselves safer.

ABOUT THE TRAININGS
Below 100 works because it is a common-sense approach to officer safety. The most effective way of presenting Below 100 is to present the core course - Below 100 Intensive - in a morning session open to all levels of law enforcement.

In the afternoon of the same day, an optional Trainer class is presented to a smaller group of experienced instructors who must have attended the morning session. The trainer presentation equips trainers to take a look at their organization and effectuate change by:

  • Conducting a risk assessment (template provided).
  • Examining policy and making changes if necessary (sample policies provided).
  • Presenting Below 100 to their agency (can be delivered in a period of two to four hours or in a series of shorter segments).
  • Providing increased awareness such as posters and articles that continually reinforce the message.

DCJS CREDIT
Partial in-service credit is being requested from DCJS.
