NEVO/Skid Control/Distracted Driving In-Service

The NEVO/Skid Control/Distracted Driving In-Service is a practical driving course focusing on improving an officer’s driving awareness, judgment and skills. Non-Emergency Vehicle Operations (NEVO) focuses on every day driving skills utilizing a driving course with eleven different skill areas. The Skid Control training focuses on inducing vehicle skids in a controlled environment so that proper skid recovery techniques may be employed.
