In 1976, veteran racecar driver Richard “Dick” Turner applied his competitive, performance driving experience to design and implement law enforcement training exercises. His unique, Low Speed, High Stress technique made it possible for training exercises to occur at low speeds, yet yield the same high-stress scenarios drivers are likely to face during emergency response. His technique proved astonishingly effective for teaching critical skills without risking injury or vehicle damage in the process.
In recent years, Brian W. Turner, formerly vice president of NAPD and son of the late Dick Turner, partnered with industry expert Rod Davis to re-invigorate the company in a way that optimally addresses current market and industry demands. The two executives successfully preserved the integrity of Dick’s original vision and innovations as they worked with IAPD master trainers to update training resources, delivery options, technologies, content, and client-centric services.
Today, IAPD blends past and present to revolutionize how organizations approach driver safety and professional driver improvement.

Dick’s professional driving and training experience also positioned him as the ideal expert witness for accident investigation and reconstruction, once more expanding the company’s services and value.
