VMLIP provides TASER™ training

VMLIP provided two days of TASER™ training for officers in the Shenandoah Valley area. Officers from the Broadway, Dayton, Grottoes, and Timberville police departments participated in TASER™ Best Practices and Critical Skills Training for Users.

The course, sponsored by VMLIP and our reinsurer Chubb, provided information and training on best practices, legal justification, user liability, and risk management as it pertains to the use of a TASER™.

Additionally, detailed court cases were reviewed, beyond the manufacturer’s curriculum, as well as medical/technical research, and selected cases of misuses and abuses of TASER™. Attendees received 7.5 hours of in-service credit for attending.

VMLIP featured in Suffolk employee newsletter

Recent Where the Rubber Meets the Road (WTRMTR) campaign training hosted by VMLIP was featured in the employee newsletter for the City of Suffolk.
