Below 100

The Municipal Police Training Committee is committed to the Below 100 effort: reducing police office line-of-duty deaths to below 100 for the first time since 1944 by getting police officers to make a personal commitment to their own officer safety and survival.  The goal can be realized if every officer will wear their belt, wear their vest, watch their speed, remember what’s important now (WIN), and avoid complacency.  Visit the "Below 100" link above for more information about the Below 100 effort.
