Course Objectives

Training for this class will be accomplished through classroom instruction, student participation and hands-on experience via a driving simulator! Students will find this to be a rewarding and complete learning experience.

This program is designed to address the issues of modern vehicle operations, during both daily driving and pursuit situations. While possessing physical driving skills is important, we find decision making skills may be even more important. Rear wheel drive, front wheel drive, all-wheel drive and four wheel drive provide pros and cons for each platform. Often a mix of these platforms are in one fleet, do officers understand the issues involved in operating these vastly different vehicles? Traction control, stabilitrak, ABS and other computer controlled functions require a basic a basic of how they work and what purpose they serve. Driver attitude, distracted driving and other human emotions play a major role in the decision making process, but we often lack training in these areas.

Students will be introduced to new studies that support the dangers created by these issues and provided ways to deal with them. Department operating procedures, law and court decisions will also be discussed. These factors play an important role in any decision making process.

Often the only thing considered during EVO training is “hands on”. This training goes far beyond normal training, but still addresses the skill issue through the use of a driving simulator. Combining all the skills will enhance the decision making process, providing the opportunity to ensure a positive outcome for all vehicle operations. The program’s goals are to provide better trained officers, reduce preventable accidents, better adherence to policy and save departments money. Insurance companies often provide lower rates for agencies who provide EVO training on a regular basis.

Given this class students will:

  • Identify and explain the cause for most vehicle accidents
  • Explain the term “Due Regard”
  • Explain the difference between departmental policy and established state law
  • Identify issues incurred during a pursuit that may require current policy to be amended
  • List the characteristics of person demonstrating a bad driving attitude
  • List the three types of distracted driving
  • Identify and list at least three ways to deal with driving distractions
  • Explain the special concerns of distracted driving during a pursuit
  • List three reasons to consider terminating a pursuit
  • Explain qualified immunity
