Below 100 Free Seminar

Below 100 is an officer safety program focused on changing law enforcement culture and saving lives. It's already making a difference: Between 2002 and 2011, an average of more than 165 line-of-duty deaths (LODDs) occurred annually. Below 100 was launched in 2011 and hit full stride in 2012. At the end of 2012, we had lost 126 officers, the lowest level of loss in more than 50 years! And in 2013, the LODD total was 105! No one wearing a badge today has ever seen a level of loss this low. We ARE making a difference and we want you to be part of this effort.

Below 100 targets areas under an officer’s control that have proven to be deadly. This webinar will include straight talk about the issues that are most dangerous to our profession. You’ll hear from special guests whose lives were changed forever by the choices and attitudes we are working to change. This will be a webinar you won’t want to miss. The life you save may be your own!
