2022 Drivers Training for Law Enforcement

The Kentucky Association of Counties (KACo) and The Kentucky League of Cities (KLC) have partnered with The Department of Criminal Justice Training (DOCJT) to develop a series of eight-hour Kentucky Law Enforcement Council (KLEC) certified emergency driving classes. These classes satisfy requirements for HB 298 (Jill’s Law), which requires all law enforcement in Kentucky to complete at least four hours of emergency driving training every two years.

Two classes, sponsored by KACo and KLC, are in-person training opportunities, while a third option offered by DOCJT is available as an online training course. Please contact DOJCT for more information about its Online Vehicle Operations Course.

Additional information about the in-person KACo/KLC classes is below, including dates and locations. Classes are free, but space is limited. Lunch will be provided
