Law Enforcement Training

The selfless nature of our law enforcement personnel makes it even more necessary that they be trained to look out for their own well being while also looking out for the safety of the citizenry.

No matter how safe we attempt to make their jobs, law enforcement officers have an inherently dangerous profession, and they willingly accept those risks. However, we see an increasing number of preventable incidents that could have been avoided had appropriate training been in place. 

Our solution

VAcorp employs staff with law enforcement backgrounds whose primary focus is our members’ law enforcement agencies. This specialist, along with other members of VAcorp’s Risk Control team, provides law enforcement training on several key areas, including: 

  • Safety awareness, utilizing pictures, news reports and videos of incidents from our vast claims experience 
  • Driving training, including driving simulator, which includes special considerations for emergency response and pursuit scenarios 
  • Injury and fatality statistical analysis, as well as accident trends based on claims reporting and other data 
  • Scenario awareness through prior and pending litigation where law enforcement is either plaintiff or defendant through our claims experience and national stories 
  • State law changes that affect law enforcement, as well as policy review
