Traffic Incident Management: The Next Evolution in Officer Safety

If an agency member conducting a traffic collision investigation was forced to jump over a guardrail, upon a median wall, or onto a sidewalk to avoid being struck by an oncoming vehicle, would the chief be notified? What if a cruiser parked at a traffic incident, collision, or traffic stop had its left side mirror struck by a passing vehicle; would that information make it to the command desk? The likely answer probably depends on the size of the agency. But take those same two scenarios, change the timing and the vehicle placement just slightly, and the outcome often becomes tragic.
