Todd Wurschmidt was the Executive Director of the Law Enforcement Foundation of Illinois. He believes that the loss of just one life, whether it’s a private citizen or a law enforcement official, should be preventable, and could be through education and awareness.
Both Todd Wurschmidt and the Law Enforcement Foundation of Illinois, or LEFI, strive to have a resonating and positive impact on the lives of young people. This goal is achieved through the use of innovative programs that raise awareness of dangerous behavior, such as texting, inattentiveness and multi-tasking while operating a motor vehicle. Todd Wurschmidt and LEFI believe that supplementing driving education programs in the state of Illinois with awareness programs about these potentially deadly behaviors is important to the creation of safer roadways throughout the state and the country, which is why they have implemented programs designed to establish better, more mutually-beneficial relationships between local youths and the law enforcement community.
Todd Wurschmidt has been an important voice for educational programs such as PACT Camps. These programs were created to promote collaboration and a sense of community between young people and law enforcement representatives throughout Illinois. Todd Wurschmidt says that LEFI, as well as the law enforcement community, has the opportunity to be a positive influence on the lives of young people through awareness and relationship cultivation.
Todd Wurschmidt has been an advocate of these programs while working with the Law Enforcement Foundation of Illinois. He has made innumerable contributions to the organizational and program development of LEFI since joining the organization.
