Chicago police sometimes have to brush up on their skills, and that includes defensive driving.Some officers got behind the wheel of a police SUV Sunday to test their abilities. The officers learned where to put their hands on the steering wheel, when to accelerate and when to slow down.

The officers also saw videos showing them what can happen if they make poor decisions behind the wheel.

A department spokesperson said officers have to undergo training every three years or so.
