"Arrive Alive" Video
October 8, 2013
In the State of Maryland, vehicle collisions injure, on average, one law enforcement officer every day. Over the past 10 years, a total of 12 Maryland officers have been killed in vehicle collisions. Of those, only 3 were wearing their seatbelt.
The State of Maryland Highway Safety Office, in collaboration with the Maryland Chiefs of Police Association, Maryland Sheriffs' Association, and International Association of Chiefs of Police, has released an outstanding 12-minute video called “Arrive Alive.” This video discusses the importance of seatbelts and the hazards of excessive speed and distraction in order to assist their officers to “Arrive Alive.” It features Chief of Police Kevin Davis from Anne Arundel County, Maryland, who is a member of the SAFE Driving Advisory Board.
“Arrive Alive” is now available on the POST Learning Portal. It may also be downloaded from the Maryland Sheriffs' Association Website.
Wear your seatbelt, watch your speed, and practice SAFE driving!
