In ever-changing times, one thing has stayed consistent—law enforcement officers are still losing their lives in preventable collisions and struck-by incidents on the nation’s roadways. Join us on Thursday, January 28, 2021, from 1:00 – 2:30pm EST for a no-cost web event entitled, “Improving Officer Safety on the Roadways: Lessons Learned from NIOSH FACE Reports on Law Enforcement Line of Duty Deaths.”
This web event, hosted by the National Law Enforcement Roadway Safety Program (NLERSP) under the Bureau of Justice Assistance VALOR Initiative, will discuss trends in officer injuries and fatalities from roadway-related incidents, provide a detailed case study of an officer struck-by incident, including lessons learned, and identify numerous resources available for patrol officers and agency decision-makers, alike, to reduce risk and improve officer safety on the road.
Speakers will include investigators from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Division of Safety Research, Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) program, and the Law Enforcement and Fire Fighter Fatality Investigation programs, who will provide an overview of the law enforcement fatality investigations conducted to date and highlight recurring lessons learned that need to be incorporated into law enforcement operations to prevent future tragedies. This 1.5-hour web event is intended for law enforcement practitioners at all levels, from patrol officers to agency executives. Click here or the button below to register.
