Emergency Vehicle Technology: Leveraging Advances to Improve Officer Safety

March 2, 2022 | 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm EST

Event Overview

In 2021, law enforcement experienced a 38% increase in roadway-related fatalities from 2020. Alarmingly, this increase was driven in part by a 100% increase in struck-by fatalities, with 28 officers killed – the highest ever recorded (NLEOMF, 2022). Reducing injuries and fatalities from officer-involved collisions and struck-by incidents must be a top priority for all law enforcement professionals in 2022 to reverse these sobering trends. This webinar will explore how vehicle technology, such as vehicle telematics, advances in emergency lighting, digital alerting, and traffic preemption systems, can be leveraged to improve officer and public safety on the roadways. This webinar is provided at no-cost as part of the National Law Enforcement Roadway Safety Program, supported by the Bureau of Justice Assistance.
