We’ve talked a lot about the number of law enforcement officers killed each year while driving patrol cars. While most of our focus has been on our driving, says risk management expert and Lexipol co-founder Gordon Graham, we also need to pay attention to the cars themselves.

Get more tips from Gordon here.

Gordon Graham has been actively involved in law enforcement since 1973. He spent nearly 10 years as a very active motorcycle officer while also attending Cal State Long Beach to achieve his teaching credential, USC to do his graduate work in Safety and Systems Management with an emphasis on Risk Management, and Western State University to obtain his law degree. In 1982 he was promoted to sergeant and also admitted to the California State Bar and immediately opened his law offices in Los Angeles.
