Below 100 Best Practices Symposium

November 8 @ 8:00 am - November 9 @ 12:00 pm


LEMIT Symposium Announcement Sep 5 17

Implementing a Culture of Common Sense  – Officer Safety Best Practices & Lessons Learned


Sam Houston State University
The Woodlands Campus
3380 College Park Dr
The Woodlands, TX 77384

Who Should Attend:

Agency Administrators  – Command-level Personnel  – Training Coordinators

This 1.5 day symposium has been specifically designed for law enforcement officials who serve in an administrative, command-level or managerial capacity and who are truly committed to officer safety. Because everyone in an agency should serve as a “safety officer” we are challenging agency administrators to focus on cultural and policy changes that will virtually eliminate preventable line-of-duty deaths and injuries.

Day 1: We will hear from renowned public safety risk-management expert Gordon Graham, who will challenge attendees with a reality check on preventable line of duty deaths.

Following a catered lunch, we will have presentations from chief administrators of three award-winning agencies, all recognized for their outstanding and effective safety programs built on a foundation of Below 100 principles. These agencies have minimized injuries, reduced crashes and reaped the reward of huge cost savings, all while improving morale.

Day 2: The following morning (half-day) will consist of a facilitated workshop designed to provide an action plan for implementing a successful common-sense safety program that will minimize preventable losses and address areas that we have control over.
