Below 100 imageEffective January 2016 the Municipal Police Training Committee increased their level of commitment to reducing line-of-duty-deaths by adding the Below 100 as a mandatory component of the curriculum in the Recruit Officer Training Curricula for full and part-time police officers.

The Below 100 curriculum:

  • Focuses on areas under an officer’s control.
  • Targets activity that has been responsible for large numbers of line-of-duty deaths.
  • Core premise: If it’s predictable, it’s preventable.
  • Officers are made aware of the problem and empowered to address it.

The ultimate goal is to reduce police officer line-of-duty deaths to below 100 for the first time since 1944 by getting police officers to make a personal commitment to their own officer safety and survival. The goal can be realized if every officer will wear their safety belt, wear their vest, watch their speed, remember what’s important now (WIN), and avoid complacency.
