Two workshops to cover distracted driving


Two workshops being offered at the Ohio Attorney General’s 2018 Law Enforcement Conference will focus on distracted driving.

Workshop 9: The commander of the Warren Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, a geographic information system database administrator for the patrol, and the district deputy director of the Ohio Department of Transportation will discuss how to identify, engineer, and implement a Distracted Driving Safety Corridor. 

Workshop 23: John P.T. Gordon, who is retired from the Marion Police Department, will share the story of his son, John T. “Rusty” Gordon, who was killed after a distracted driver crashed into his motorcycle. Gordon will discuss how officers are at risk of such accidents and how training and policy updates could help.
