Vehicle accidents in the line of duty can lead to high costs in lives and money. That is why LGIT pays for selected member agencies’ law enforcement officers to attend emergency vehicle operations courses offered by the Maryland Police & Correctional Training Commission (MPCTC) in Sykesville, MD. LGIT pays for the $150 registration fee and auto physical damage insurance.
The course is designed for law enforcement personnel with prior training in emergency / pursuit vehicle operations. Lecture presentations followed by practical exercises will refresh and enhance previously learned skills. The curriculum is devoted to enhancing the student’s attitude, techniques and skills required during patrol operations including emergency / pursuit operation of a police motor vehicle.
LGIT invites member agency law enforcement executives to provide the names of officers that would benefit from EVOC training. Officers that have the greatest need for training based on accident frequency, severity and type will be given preference.
