Below 100

Date: November 8, 2019
Time: CHOOSE ONE: 0800-1200 & 1300-1700 (4 Hour class)
Location: Moore Hall – Leviton Auditorium
Instructor: Tom Dirlam (Retired Michigan State Police)

Course Description:

The “Below 100” program, is an initiative aimed at reducing line-of-duty deaths to “below 100”, a number not seen since 1943. In 1974 there was an all-time high of 278 line-of-duty deaths. Since then, innovations in training, emergency medicine, vehicle safety features, as well as the development of ballistic body armor, has contributed to help bring this number down since then. Over the last decade about 150 officers are killed in the line of duty each year. This training will demonstrate how you can help bring that number to “below 100”. “Below 100” has identified five core tenets by which officer safety can be improved – areas where we can make a difference. “Below 100” isn’t about statistics. It’s about each and every officer, trainer and supervisor taking individual and collective responsibility for the decisions and actions that contribute to officer safety.
