Advanced Traffic Crash Investigation Training (Part 2 of a 3-Part Series) @ Bernalillo County Sheriff's Training Facility
Sep 16 @ 8:00 am – Sep 27 @ 5:00 pm
Advanced Traffic Crash Investigation Training (Part 2 of a 3-Part Series) @ Bernalillo County Sheriff's Training Facility

You must register for all three courses in the series to earn credit. 

Building upon the theories and techniques learned in the At-Scene Traffic Crash Investigation course, this class will delve into the advanced concepts of traffic crash investigations. More complex vehicle dynamics like acceleration/deceleration, factor rate and airborne situations will be explored. You will learn to estimate speeds from falls, vaults, and flips and the calculation of kinetic energy and linear momentum. You’ll also learn to evaluate vehicle lamps, tires, and damage to help determine vehicle behaviors during collision. Much of the coursework will be spent using acceleration/deceleration factors and perception /reaction times to determine time/distance relationships for colliding vehicles.

REREQUISITE: Students must have completed the At-Scene Traffic Crash Investigation Training.

National Seat Check Saturday

Car crashes are a leading cause of death for children 1 to 13 years old. Many deaths and injuries can be prevented by proper use of car seats, boosters and seat belts. Getting safety information and car seat instructions to parents and caregivers is crucial to saving young lives.

Join Safer New Mexico Now for National Seat Check Saturday and get your Child Safety Seat inspected. Events are first-come-first-served and no appointments are necessary.

Sep 25 @ 8:00 am – Sep 27 @ 4:00 pm
Radar/LIDAR Instructor Training @ Albuquerque Police Department Training Academy, Class B.

This 3-day training assists law enforcement personnel in developing the skills necessary to successfully present Radar/LIDAR training programs to other members of law enforcement. Students will gain a comprehensive understanding of the motivation, basic methods, principles, and operation of radar and laser technology used in speed enforcement. Training topics include detailed mathematics and scientific principles for successful use of radar and laser technology, information about moving and stationary radar, legal issues, and preparing for court testimony. The training is designed for law enforcement personnel, including but not limited to field officers, first-line supervisors, managers, administrators, and law enforcement program coordinators.

PREREQUISITE AND REQUIREMENTS: Students must have completed an Instructor Development course and a Radar/LIDAR Operator Course prior to registration. Students should bring a radar unit (in-car and/or hand-held), LIDAR unit, reflective vest, and note taking material.

Oct 21 @ 8:00 am – Nov 1 @ 5:00 pm
Traffic Crash Reconstruction Training (Part 3 of a 3-Part Series) @ Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office Training Facility

You must register for all three courses in the series to receive credit. 

The training will assist the students with further understanding of vehicle dynamics in a crash. Students will take part in more intense study of time/distance calculations, angular momentum, and impact speed calculations using momentum equations. Students will gain hands-on experience in crash reconstruction through extensive project work and controlled vehicle experiments. Each student will be required to diagram and analyze different crash scenarios, as well as complete vector sum analyses of each.

PREREQUISITE: Students must have completed the Advanced Traffic Crash Investigation Training.
