Below 100 is a law enforcement officer safety program that focuses on the reduction of the number of law enforcement related deaths to below 100 per year; a number that has not been reached since 1943.
Below 100 has a vision “to permanently eliminate line of duty deaths and injuries through innovative training and awareness” and a mission “to influence law enforcement culture by providing innovative training and awareness, through presentations, social media, and webinars on identifying the leading causes and current trends in preventable line of duty death and injuries.”
The focus of this effort is to address line-of-duty deaths which are a direct result of motor vehicle crashes using the Below 100 program’s five tenets:
1. Wear your seatbelt
2. Watch your speed
3. Wear your vest
4. WIN: What’s Important Now
5. Complacency kills.
IADLEST has been awarded a project by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The project provides free training and technical assistance for law enforcement agencies throughout the nation implementing the Below 100 Training Program. The project includes:
Below 100 Train-the-Trainer classes (presented back-to-back with the Intensive classes): The 4-hour Train-the-Trainer classes will provide trainers with the proper resources, outreach and education materials and skills training necessary for law enforcement jurisdictions to begin implementing the program tenets within their agency.
To request training classes or technical assistance under this project, please contact Mark Damitio, IADLEST Accreditation and Grants Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or (316) 640-6513.
