The initiative is led by a team of core trainers, with support from outside partners and sponsors. Together, we can get Below 100!Read More
Like many good ideas, the Below 100 initiative came out of a conversation around a dinner table. In April 2010, several contributors to Law Officer Magazine and friends were enjoying a dinner together at the International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association (ILEETA) Conference. There had been a spate of officer deaths, and clearly, everyone at the table was concerned. Captain Travis Yates of the Tulsa Police Department made a statement that caused everyone to pause…..
As a result of the generous support of the NTOA, we have been able to offer Below 100 classes in Syracuse (NY), Albany (NY), Meriden, (CT) and Worcester (MA) with more to come.

Passenger side approaches work on traffic stops. Use them and live to tell the story.
Many state troopers have been saved by wearing their seat belt while parked on the side of a highway. If you get back in the car while sitting on the side of the road, it’s usually in your best interest to have that seat belt on.
“Chief, I attended my first ever below 100 training class today. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect with a four hour block of instruction on something as simple as wear your belt, wear your vest, and slow down. I’ll say I was pleasantly surprised. What a good class and I am glad that you require all of your men and women to go. Every academy in the country should have these guys come out and teach this class. Anyway, just wanted to shoot you an email to say thank you.”
