This course teaches the effective and efficient deployment of agency resources using the highly successful DDACTS (Data-Driven Approaches to Crime and Traffic Safety) operational model. The workshop is designed around specific job functions and it is important that each agency send a commander, a supervisor and an analyst to the training.
DDACTS is a place-based operational model using traffic crash, crime, and enforcement data to conduct the systematic and justifiable deployment of resources where the prevalence of traffic crashes and crime occur. It establishes a clear relationship between traffic crashes and crime and renews the emphasis on traffic safety as a tool to reducing crashes, crime, and other social harms.
During the course, you will learn the seven guiding principles of DDACTS and the best practices for implementing each using your available workforce and data resources. We will show you how to build support both internally and externally that will facilitate acceptance of the strategy. And we will teach you how to adapt the model to fit your agency’s size, culture, supervision, and deployment strategies.
