Below 100 - LexipolSince its grassroots founding just seven years ago, the Below 100 program has had a profound impact on law enforcement safety. By training officers on five simple tenets, the program successfully challenges officers to take individual and collective responsibility to reduce line-of-duty deaths.

Typically, Below 100 programs are local or regional, but an upcoming event featuring Lexipol’s Gordon Graham is aimed at bringing agencies together to share Below 100 best practices. “Implementing a Culture of Common Sense Officer Safety: Best Practices and Lessons Learned from Three Award-Winning Agencies” features a keynote presentation by Graham as well as presentations from the Burlington (NC) Police Department, Snohomish County (WA) Sheriff’s Office and the Hillsborough (NC) Police Department.

Hosted by the Law Enforcement Management Institute of Texas and sponsored in part by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this event is open to law enforcement professionals across the country. Participants will leave the symposium with an action plan to effectively roll out a lasting program to improve safety, reduce liability, save money and boost employee morale.

From its inception, Below 100 and Lexipol have been closely aligned. The five Below 100 tenets are regularly incorporated into Lexipol’s Daily Training Bulletins and connected to relevant Lexipol policies, such as body armor and vehicle pursuits. In 2016, Graham and Below 100 executive director Dale Stockton presented a webinar (now available on-demand) on how to use Below 100 to create a lasting culture of safety within law enforcement agencies.

Following are additional program details for the upcoming symposium:

Lexipol Team

Lexipol was founded in 2003 by Gordon Graham and Bruce Praet, attorneys and former law enforcement officers with extensive experience in risk management. They realized many law enforcement agencies lacked sound, up-to-date, legally defensible policies. This put the agency, their officers and the community at risk. To address this need, the Lexipol founders developed state-specific law enforcement policy manuals backed by daily training to reinforce policy understanding and use. They offered the policies online for easy access anytime, anywhere—and continuously monitored changes to federal and state laws, providing policy updates as needed.
