9 State Crash Report Form Analysis An Evaluation Compared to SAFETYNET Data Requirements and Definitions
10 State Crash Report Form Analysis Analyzed ALL current State Crash Reports and Truck/Bus Supplements with all elements maintained in the SAFETYNET Crash ModuleProviding suggestions for revisions to improve the collection of SAFETYNET crash dataFor those states that are currently revising their report/supplement, providing assistance in the form of a detailed comparison chart as well written recommendations
11 State Comparison Charts Available soon in HTML format on A&I
20 CaliforniaWorked with CHP on updates to the 555D and matching revisions to the CHP Collision Investigation Manual.Developed a custom training class based on the fields from the new 555D using the materials from the full-day training class.Prepared expanded resource materials:A photo and definition review of Vehicle Configuration and Cargo Body TypeAn example case using the new 555DInitial train-the-trainer held January 3, 2007 in Sacramento.As of June, the class has reached 591 officers in California in CHP and allied agencies.
