A FREE TRAINING PROGRAM TO SAVE LAW ENFORCEMENT LIVES
The purpose of Below 100 training is to reduce line-of-duty deaths to fewer than 100 a year (not seen since 1943) and reduce the number of serious injuries. This compelling training focuses on areas under an officer’s control. This training will be approved for 4 hours of DCJS in-service credit. There is NO COST to attend! Space is limited, so please register early!
Below 100 is 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 so that it becomes the norm and not the exception. 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.
Below 100 works because it is a common-sense approach to officer safety. The core course - Below 100 Intensive - is open to all levels of law enforcement. By the end of the Intensive class, students will be aware of the safety issues of not wearing an armored vest, not wearing a safety vest, not wearing a safety belt, being complacent, speeding, and not using good decision making skills.
