Pull Over; Have No Regrets: Presentation for Teen Drivers
PursuitSAFETY's national educational program, Pull Over; Have No Regrets, targets teen drivers. Most drivers who flee are between the ages of 13-25. Parents, educators, and the public of all ages need to teach younger drivers, and understand themselves, that the consequences for fleeing police are much worse than doing the right thing: pulling over.

Safer Way Award Program
Law enforcement representatives from associations and departments of any size as well as civilians from the United States and Canada are urged to submit nominations for the 6th annual PursuitSAFETY Safer Way Award. PursuitSAFETY extends a special "thank you" to XHAUSTR Industries for its support of the award. Capt. Gary Berg, Campbell (Calif.) Police Department and founder of XHAUSTR, will present an XHAUSTR Kit to the 2016 winners. Even though XHAUSTR recently came on board with their support, they gave one of their kits to last year's winners!  
Here's what Police One wrote about Capt. Berg and his robust public-safety solutions company: After getting into pursuits as an officer and seeing risks become reality, Berg sought out a solution that could eliminate dangerous pursuits altogether. "I knew there had to be a better way of doing it," he said.
