BLET Gets New Vehicle for Driver Training

The Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) program at Stanly Community College (SCC) has recently acquired a vehicle to be used for driver training. This gives students hands-on experience with the special types of cars they will be driving once they become employed with law enforcement agencies.

Driver Training demonstrates the ability to use acceptable vehicle control methods by successfully completing the following practical exercises: offset lane maneuver; fixed radius curve; precision exercise; serpentine exercise; evasive exercise; emergency response driving and pursuit driving. This vehicle will also be used for courses in Traffic and Patrol Techniques.

SCC’s Duplicating Technician, Mark Clark, created and installed customized decals for the BLET training vehicle. Strobe lights will also be installed to create a more realistic simulation experience for students.

SCC will be offering a full time day class and a part time evening class, both starting August 17. The deadline is July 30 so potential students need to contact BLET Director Christi Almond as soon as possible at 704-991-0269.
