Training of Albion public security officers at MIS
Albion public safety officers recently spent time training at Michigan International Speedway.
Albion’s Department of Public Safety recently announced that department officials had completed a few weeks of training at the one and only Michigan International Speedway.
While it might sound like fun and fun, a lot of practice has taken place. This included an 8-hour refresher training, which includes classroom training, precision driving, and high-speed chase training. The training is organized by the Southern Michigan Criminal Justice Consortium.
Two officers from the Albion Department of Public Safety also participated in the 32-hour instructor course. Although none of the officers were able to drive on the speed track, they were able to make a few high speed passes in the MIS pit row.
Albion Department of Public Safety officers can participate in training sessions like this because they are members of the Southern Michigan Criminal Justice Consortium, which gives them access to facilities like Michigan International Speedway. The facility allows officers to train and practice their precision driving and high speed maneuvers in a safe and controlled environment on the indoor road course.
Michigan International Speedway is widely recognized as one of the best powersports facilities. MIS is the fastest track in NASCAR due to its wide and wide angles, its long straight lines and the absence of restriction plate requirement; Typical qualifying speeds are above 200 mph (320 km / h), and corner entry speeds are between 215 and 220 mph (346-354 km / h) after the track was repaved in 2012.
