“Notes from the Field” is not a research-based publication. Instead, it presents lessons learned by law enforcement executives and other on-the-ground leaders, from years of experience and thinking deeply about law enforcement issues."


"With more than 7.2 million police-reported motor vehicle crashes in 2016, the likelihood that a police officer in the United States will respond to a crash on any given shift is relatively high. Traffic crashes have widespread and varied impacts, ranging from property damage to medical costs and lost productivity. Traffic crashes have killed at least 29,000 people annually since 2007 and injured millions. Despite this harm, there is a dearth of criminal justice research on how police can reduce crashes and their associated harms. When officers complete crash reports, they generate data that can and should be harnessed to develop intervention strategies to reduce crashes and their associated harms."--Page 1.
