To help officers hone their skills, Oro Valley Police Department is hosting a pair of traffic reconstruction schools.
Taught by Northwestern University Center for Public Safety Traffic Institute, the courses address collisions involving pedestrians and vehicles, as well as motorcycles. The classes are held at the department substation at 1920 E. Tangerine Road. The first session took place Sept. 4-6 and the other session is Sept. 16-20.
The training helps the officers make accurate collision reconstructions that help prosecute vehicular crimes. Agencies with officers attending the scools include the Oro Valley Police Department, Pima County Sheriff’s Department, Tucson Police Department, Marana Police Department, Chula Vista California Police Department and the United Arab Emirates Dubai Police Force.
