Rail Safety Training Course for Law Enforcement
Proper law enforcement can deter risky behavior and it is vital that law enforcement officers receive proper training pertaining to the importance of enforcing trespassing and grade crossing laws. Law enforcement officers are typically the first emergency responders to reach the scene of an accident at a grade crossing. Unfortunately, most law enforcement officers are not provided with the proper training to contend with the many unique hazards and challenges present at a rail accident. The goal of this program is to develop an informational video for law enforcement. The video covers pertinent and valuable information law enforcement needs to respond to a call involving the railroad quickly, efficiently, and safely.
