SPI Data-Driven Approaches to Crime and Traffic Safety

The Smart Policing Initiative hosted a webinar on Data-Driven Approaches to Traffic and Crime Safety (DDACTS). This was an online, interactive seminar aimed at engaging the SPI community in a focused discussion around recent evidence regarding the effectiveness of DDACTS, how DDACTS reflects Smart Policing Principles, and DDACTS information resources available to police agencies. Four police agencies also discussed their experiences with DDACTS, including Roanoke County (VA), Metro Nashville (TN), Mesa (AZ), and Shawnee (KS).
