>> 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.” 

In-Person Law Enforcement Officer Training

The coronavirus has impacted our Law Enforcement Training opportunities that we had scheduled across the state this spring and summer. We have made the decision to cancel all in-person training sessions, except for the July 17 training in Asheville, NC. We will continue to monitor the situation as well as registration numbers through June and determine the feasibility of holding this training at that time.

Law Enforcement Officer Webinar

In lieu of in-person training sessions, the Watch for Me NC program held a two-hour abbreviated webinar for law enforcement officers. This training covers State laws related to walking and biking as well as enforcement. This training provides the fundamentals to understand and communicate these laws.

The recorded training is available to review for Watch for Me NC partner communities only. The webinar training will satisfy the Watch for Me NC partner community’s commitment to attend law enforcement training.

Law Enforcement Officer Open Hour Office Calls

To respond to the shifting priorities of law enforcement officers around the state, we are also hosting monthly, one-hour open office calls to discuss concerns related to pedestrians and bicyclists. Each call will be hosted by HSRC and Sgt. Brian Massengill, Durham Police Department, to answer questions or learn about other community or police department agency response. 

These calls are open to any sworn law enforcement officer and are not restricted to Watch for Me NC partner communities only.
