Course Description:

This course, similar to our Work Zone Safety Awareness Program, is specifically being offered to current New Jersey law enforcement officers who require an overview of working safely in the roadway. This course Does Not replace the Police Work Zone Safety Train-the-Trainer Course. As new or veteran law enforcement officers are frequently required to assist with short-term work zones or are assigned to long-term projects. There are no allowances for errors when working next to traffic, so it is important for personnel to have a solid understanding of work zone safety compliance with the national MUTCD standards. Also, the roles of workers and enforcement personnel at work sites, differences between NJDOT and local projects, and legal responsibilities in work zones will be addressed during this program.

This course is open to LAW ENFORCEMENT PERSONNEL ONLY.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices
  • Discuss the role of a police officer in a work zone
  • Identify types of work zones and required devices

Intended Audience: Law enforcement
