>> Law Enforcement Trainings

As part of the Watch For Me NC safety program, the North Carolina Department of Transportation and UNC’s Highway Safety Research Center are offering “Enforcement for Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety.”  This free training will be offered to participant communities throughout the summer.

This training course is free and open to members of law enforcement agencies and university police.

A full-day course is offered for new communities to the Watch for Me NC program or new officers in continuing partner communities. Communities that have participated in previous Watch for Me NC program years will receive a half-day refresher course.

This course provides law enforcement officers with the special traffic management knowledge and skills they need to improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety in their communities. Sgt. Brian Massengill with the Durham Police Department will present the latest pedestrian and bicyclist safety enforcement information. Topic areas include:

  • Where pedestrians and bicyclists fit in
  • Engineering for pedestrian/bicycle safety
  • How pedestrian/bicycle crashes occur
  • The role of education and enforcement
  • Relevant laws and enforcement practices
  • Mock crosswalk enforcement operations
  • Crash investigation and reporting
  • Potential law enforcement partners

The course will include hands-on, in-the-field training on how to conduct a Pedestrian Crosswalk Enforcement Operation.
