Course Descriptions

High Speed Pursuit Courses

In an effort to reduce the number of deaths and injuries resulting from vehicle pursuits, ALERT International and IADLEST are partnering to provide a comprehensive pursuit policy program. This effort addresses law enforcement vehicular pursuit policy issues, including factors to consider when initiating, conducting and terminating a vehicular pursuit. Procedures discussed in pursuit policy workshops are consistent with the International Association of Chiefs of Police guidelines. Recognizing that pursuit driving is a very dangerous activity, police agencies around the United States have begun to change their perspective of pursuits and their understanding of pursuit policy and training. The workshop is designed to provide law enforcement officers with the knowledge and skills necessary to safely and successfully conduct vehicular pursuits.
