DDACTS OPERATIONAL GUIDELINES

04-02-2013 11:57

Data-Driven Approaches to Crime and Traffic Safety (DDACTS) is a law enforcement
operational model supported by a partnership among the Department of Transportation’s
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and two agencies of the Department of
Justice, the Bureau of Justice Assistance and the National Institute of Justice. DDACTS
integrates location-based crime and traffic crash data to establish effective and efficient
methods for deploying law enforcement and other resources. Using geo-mapping to identify
areas through temporal and spatial analysis, that have high incidences of crime and crashes,
DDACTS employs targeted traffic enforcement strategies. By saturation locations with high
crime and crash incidences with highly visible traffic enforcement, DDACTS communities
play a simultaneous dual role: fighting crime and reducing traffic crashes and traffic
violations. Drawing on the deterrent value of highly visible traffic enforcement and the
knowledge that crimes often involve the use of motor vehicles, the goal of DDACTS is to
reduce the incidence of crime, crashes, and traffic violations in communities across the
country.
