When it comes to skills such as making high-risk traffic stops or pursuing a suspect's vehicle in hazardous driving conditions, police officers need training to feel as close to the real thing as possible.

Training sessions that accurately reflect extreme conditions can help officers react effectively. To this end, agencies have a variety of options at their disposal, including driving practice in cars that simulate dangerous weather, as well as scenarios that combine driving and shoot-out elements.When officers learn any new skills, it's important to track who has taken the classes and what their scores were. Workforce management software that includes training compliance can be used to save time and help ensure reporting accuracy.

For example, employees with scheduled training events are displayed on shift rosters and on each employee's calendar. Once course results are saved, they are automatically logged in each employee's record. Compliance results can be reported electronically to external institutions.  And expiring certifications can be setup with automated renewal alerts.

Thanks for watching, and check back soon for more news about how technology is serving the public safety workforce.
