3 Data-Driven Approaches to Crime and Traffic Safety DDACTS DDACTS is an operational model that uses the integration of location-based crime and traffic data to establish effective and efficient methods for deploying law enforcement and other resources.

4 DDACTS Goal Reduce the incidence of crime, crashes and traffic violations in a community Reduces Social Harm

5 Why DDACTS? ● Increasing Demands and Limited Resources ● Conflicting / Competing Demands for Service ● Crime and Crashes Often Occur in Close Proximity ● Crimes Often Involve a Motor Vehicle ● Vehicle Stops Can Yield Criminal Identification and Arrest

6 DDACTS Advantages Collaborative Effort Grounded in Community-Oriented Policing Evidence Based Problem-Solving Focused Area for High Visibility Enforcement Ensures Accountability Fewer Ethical and Legal Concerns

7 National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives “If the data analysis reveals that criminal activity and traffic crashes occur at a specific place within a community, then it is at that place that law enforcement activities need to be focused. A non-biased, data-driven approach to crime and traffic safety delivers law enforcement services at the right place and at the right time.” Joseph A. McMillan, NOBLE President
