Dublin Police Services recently received a $50,000 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) to streamline processes to collect and report traffic data.
Grant funds will be used to:
- Develop a new, or update an existing, electronic crash reporting system with software that is able to submit data to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS).
- Develop an electronic citation system.
“Accurate and timely data is critical to the safety of our roads,” said Dublin Police Services Captain Nate Schmidt. “This funding will help paint a clearer picture of our biggest traffic safety issues.”
The grant program runs from October 1, 2020 to September 30, 2021.
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
