The Police Chief Update
July Issue   JULY 2015 ISSUE

Highway and traffic safety is a wide-ranging issue that every law enforcement agency and officer encounters during their career. This issue offers ideas, tools, and examples of highway safety solutions for readers to implement in their own agencies as they join IACP in its goal to reduce traffic-related injuries and fatalities of both civilians and officers.

FEATURES

Law enforcement leaders know that traffic incidents carry inherent risks to their responding officers, but sound policies and best practices can help them reduce those risks. By creating a culture that embraces TIM principles and actively employs them, leaders can improve their service while also better protecting their officers.

Nearly 33,000 lives are lost each year on U.S. roadways. Florida Highway Patrol decided to take a stand and engaged 15 other state and highway patrol agencies in an effort to reduce traffic-related deaths along the I-95 corridor. The challenge, which is ongoing, involves collaborative education and enforcement initiatives to improve safety on I-95.

Speed kills, and, for that reason, speeding enforcement is a priority for agencies who patrol U.S. highways, most of whom use radar or lidar technologies. Drivers (and their attorneys) often argue speeding tickets in court by challenging the use of radar or lidar. Officers should be prepared for these common arguments and understand how to respond to them.
