January 17, 2022 | View as webpage | Too many emails? Update Subscription Preferences
Dear Police1 Member,

Getting into a squad car may be the most dangerous thing a cop does during their shift. With multiple distractions from MDTs and cellphones, police officers (especially those in one-man cars) face increased risks of being involved in motor vehicle collisions. On top of that, we've seen recent ambushes of LEOs while in their patrol vehicles. So, how can cops prioritize their safety while in and around their vehicles? That's the question today's newsletter addresses.

Read on to access:

► A training plan for shooting from and through vehicles
► An evaluation of the effectiveness of an LE crash prevention program
► A review of the effective deployment of the PIT maneuver during pursuits

PLUS, download Police1's "How to buy driving simulators" eBook.

Stay safe,

The Police1 Team
