Deputies Train To Make The Right Response In High Speed Pursuits
Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Sergeant Jeff Bonack says he’s seen deputies improve over the years after taking their Emergency Vehicle Operation Center and Pursuit Training. He says it is mandated that deputies take a minimum of four hours training every two years. He says their department requires eight hours. He says four hours are in the classroom and final four hours are on a track at the Fond du Lac County Airport where a high speed chase is simulated. He says they even have a live suspect for driving portion of the training. He says there is a lot emphasis not only on driving tactics, but the appropriate response given the person they are pursuing and the risk to the public.
