Texas Traffic Stop Training
TAPS Academy provides the Texas Traffic Stop Training SB30 also known as the Community Safety Education Act. This act requires school districts to provide instruction to students in grades 9-12 on proper interaction with peace officers during traffic stops and other in-person encounters.
If you'd like us to provide SB30 training for your organization please reach out to [email protected]
