SAFE Driving Campaign
The SAFE Driving Campaign is a California POST initiative to reduce the number of law enforcement officers killed and injured in traffic collisions nationwide. The key to success in this undertaking is to focus on changing attitudes, improving training, increasing accountability, and mobilizing leadership. SAFE stands for Situation-Appropriate, Focused, and Educated driving.
The SAFE Driving Campaign is comprised of three primary components: an Advisory Board, concerned with national awareness efforts; a Research Team, tasked with identifying causes and interventions associated with officer-involved collisions; and a Vehicle Operations and Training Advisory Council (VOTAC), focused on the advancement of best policy and training practices. The Motor Officer Training and Operations Review for Safety (MOTORS) Advisory Group, a subcommittee to the VOTAC, concentrates on best policy and training practices as it specifically relates to law enforcement motors.
