Training Module For (Your Agency here)
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.
DDACTS Goals Reduce the incidence of crime and crashes in a neighborhood and Reduce Social Harm.
Shows a clear relationship between crashes and crime Renews an emphasis on traffic safety contacts, not tickets Provides flexible deployment strategies Addresses several CALEA ® Accreditation standards Builds stronger relationships with stakeholders and partners WHAT CAN DDACTS DO FOR YOUR AGENCY?
The DDACTS philosophy and model are discussed in the Operational Guidelines.
Seven Guiding Principles Partners / Stakeholder Participation Data Collection Data Analysis Strategic Operations Information Sharing and Outreach Monitor, Evaluate and Adjust Outcomes
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 valuable intelligence
Why DDACTS? “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” - Albert Einstein If crimes and crashes are not as low as you would want them to be, a fresh approach may be needed.
Size Does Not Matter! DDACTS has been successfully implemented in a wide variety of agencies nationwide. Small, Medium and Large Urban, Suburban, Rural Jurisdictions Municipal Police, Sheriff’s Departments, College Police Departments
