Law Enforcement Community
Operation Lifesaver's close partnership with the law enforcement community throughout America has strengthened and improved public safety.
It's critical that when highway-rail intersection collisions do occur, law enforcement officers--often the first responders--are familiar with both railroad operations and highway-rail grade crossing conditions. Operation Lifesaver offers a special course teaching officers how to ensure their personal safety, both while responding to rail collision incidents and throughout the investigation.
If your community contains railroad tracks, your officers could be involved in a specialized highway-rail grade crossing collision investigation. Operation Lifesaver's Grade Crossing Collision Investigation (GCCI) course is designed to inform and prepare your department for that eventuality. Our GCCI training was developed for the North American law enforcement community with cooperation from the International Association of Chiefs of Police.
Nearly 15 percent of Operation Lifesaver's trained, certified and volunteer safety Presenters are law enforcement officers. Join them and become an Operation Lifesaver Rail Safety Presenter.
Grade Crossing Collision Investigation (GCCI) Course
Operation Lifesaver has developed a Grade Crossing Collision Investigation (GCCI) course for law enforcement officers in cooperation with the law enforcement community. Courses are available in 4-hour, 8-hour, and 16-hour lengths to fit your schedule. These courses help officers perform their jobs safely whenever they are required to be around railroad property.
