NLERSP IACP OSW 2023 - Mitigating Struck-By Incidents: What More Can We Do to Protect Officers?

Sunday Mar 05, 2023 - 09:30am to 10:30am PST
Event Description: 

Officers are being struck at an alarming rate on the roadways. In the last 5 years alone, 85 officers were struck and killed, including 27 officers in 2021—a93% increase from struck-by fatalities in 2020. More must be done to protect our officers. This workshop will provide case studies of struck-by incidents, including a discussion of contributing factors and prevention strategies. Attendees will hear from Lt. Brady Robinette (Lubbock Fire Rescue) and Sgt. Robert Bemis (Pennsylvania State Police, retired) as they recount struck-by incidents that have impacted their lives and discuss how policing leaders need to consider non-traditional strategies to reduce and prevent officer injuries and fatalities. This workshop is provided by BJA’s National Law Enforcement Roadway Safety Program.
