New 4 hr Distracted Driving Law Enforcement Course

Beginning October 1st, 2013, our Law Enforcement Liaison (LEL) program will offer a new free 4 hour TCOLE Distracted Driving - Law Enforcement course. The purpose of this course is to help Law Enforcement Officers understand the risks associated with distracted driving. Law Enforcement Officers will realize the effect it can have while operating emergency vehicles after attending this course. The potentially tragic consequences of distracted driving should heighten their awareness so they can reshape their attitudes/beliefs to adapt a self-disciplined standard of focused attention to safe driving—as well as influencing their peers, friends and families. If  interested, please contact us to schedule a course for your department. Contact information is provided on the flyer below.

We look forward to working with your department!
