TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - It was re-certification day out at the Terre Haute International Airport for local law enforcement.
It's called EVO training, or emergency vehicle operations training.
Police officers went through simulation training to refresh themselves on different scenarios behind the wheel.
Officials say 90 percent of every officer's time, despite their job, is spent behind the wheel of a vehicle.
The whole reason officers are required to certify on this training is to keep themselves and others safe.
"So we're constantly driving through the community sometimes in emergency situations, high-stress situations, so their skills need to be refined. In an effort to not only keep our officers safe, but to keep the community safe as well,” said Sergeant Jason Czupryn, Terre Haute Police Department.
Police do this training every year in order to re-certify on the tools used to save lives in your community.
