Today's officers are driving in more highly congested areas, where they experience more challenges than ever before, thus increasing the likelihood of involvement in an on-duty crash. The Cumulative Skills Driving Course, a hybrid of the Police Training Commission's mandated recruit training, has been designed to provide both the veteran and new police officer with practical, behind-the-wheel driver training.
Officers who attend this training will:
• Learn, through practical driving exercises, some personal, physical, mental and vehicular limitations regarding the operation of fleet police vehicles. • Drive a cumulative skills course designed to gauge their understanding of the driving task. • Understand the operational aspects of occupational restraint systems and advanced braking systems. • Acquire new driving strategies which will help the officer survive an impending crash through conscious maneuvering of his or her vehicle.
This course is taught by a retired police officer, who is a certified Senior Vehicle Operations Instructor for the Police Training Commission, and is the lead instructor at this Academy.
ALL STUDENTS MUST BRING A DEPARTMENT POLICE VEHICLE AND NO MORE THAN TWO STUDENTS PER VEHICLE.
PROGRAM COST: BERGEN COUNTY $0.00 OUT-OF-COUNTY $35.00
