Commercial Vehicle Awareness Training
In response to requests from several state and local law enforcement agencies, the IACP, in cooperation with the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration of the USDOT, developed a program titled, “Commercial Vehicle Awareness Training” designed to inform uniformed patrol officers of the requirements for entry of commercial vehicles into the US from Canada and Mexico, to provide information on required driver and vehicle documentation as well as resources available from state and federal commercial vehicle enforcement agencies. The training program is three-hours in length, delivered in five modules.
The IACP will be conducting a series of five, one-day, train-the-trainer workshops for the purpose of training state commercial vehicle enforcement officers and others involved in traffic enforcement functions to present the training for officers of state, county and local agencies in their jurisdictions.
