Pilot/Escort Vehicle Operators Best Practices Guidelines for Law Enforcement Escorts

This report updates the 2004 Law Enforcement Escort Best Practices Guidelines. The guidelines describe the actions a law enforcement officer should complete prior to, during, and after escorting an over-dimensional permitted load to ensure the safe and efficient movement of the load. The safe movement of permitted oversize/overweight loads requires coordinated efforts among all stakeholders. It is recommended that these guidelines for law enforcement officers be coordinated with the Pilot/Escort Vehicle Operator Best Practices Guidelines when taken together to provide the overall guidance for the safe movement of permitted oversize/overweight loads.
