It is no secret that police drive police vehicles with blue lights and sirens to arrive at an incident scene as quickly as possible and provide first aid. But to arrive safely at the incident site, the officers need training in handling these police vehicles, and the Driving Training Course is for this purpose.
The course lasted three weeks and was given by Dutch instructors: Mr. Geo Prins, Mr. Arno van Blitterswijk, and Mr. Eric de Haan.
The officers underwent several practical and theoretical training sessions. They employed various settings and situations to employ various police cars to navigate different obstacles successfully.
A total of 30 police officers had the opportunity to participate in the course and completed it. At the end of the course, the officers gained more knowledge about driving a police vehicle and received a certificate.
For Chief of Police Drs. Ramon Arnhem, these three weeks were filled with intensive education and raising the quality of the daily work of the police. It is essential not only for the community's safety but also for the officers behind the wheel, who must be able to drive tactically to get to the incident site without causing incidents with other people.
