This training course is designed to reinforce the techniques of the Law Enforcement Emergency Vehicle Operation (LEEVO) through hands-on training and demonstration. The student will be required to respond to a law enforcement emergency response situation. The student will initiate an emergency response with full emergency equipment and radio communication. The student will demonstrate the proper evasive driving techniques while avoiding all road hazards and properly clearing intersections. The emergency response will ultimately result in a pursuit situation. The student must demonstrate the basic fundamentals to safely control a vehicle at all times, but especially while in a pursuit situation. The knowledge gained, along with the techniques and skills learned during this course of training, will help the law enforcement agent/officer read the road, plan ahead, and safely operate a law enforcement vehicle while performing law enforcement-specific tasks.
