Texas Association of Counties Risk Management Pool has provided a driving simulator for our local law enforcement agencies. The training starts out with a two hour classroom presentation. In this presentation, law enforcement officers are taught Principles of Defensive Driving, Vehicle Dynamics and Emergency Driving Operations. Once the officers have completed the classroom portion, the officers are given an opportunity to practice driving with the driving simulator. Mr. Don Courtney with Texas Association of Counties instructs the officers in the classroom and with the driving simulator. In the picture above, Mr. Courtney is instructing Lee County SO Sgt. Carey Ray on how the simulator works while Sheriff Rodney Meyer observes. The Driving Simulation Training has been offered to members of Automobile Liability and Workers’ Compensation programs with the Texas Association of Counties since 2000. New driving simulators were unveiled in 2016 featuring fully-customized simulators in a 20-foot trailer with the latest in simulator technology. Participating agencies were Lee County Sheriff's Office, Lee County Constable Pct. 2, Giddings Police Department and Lexington Police Department
