Sergeant James Williams with the Metro Nashville Police Department discusses how his agency used data to develop targeted traffic intervention strategies to reduce car crashes and their associated harms in a metropolitan area, implementing a High Visibility Enforcement (HVE) campaign. Captain Ken Clary, Iowa State Patrol, outlines an evidence-based, proactive strategy being tested in a rural area to deter and prevent fatal crashes. Both efforts pay close attention to dosage, aiming to impact driving behavior with short, intermittent applications of police visibility and enforcement.

As a program supported by the National Institute of Justice, The LEADS Scholars program grew out of a desire to support and develop the next generation of law enforcement leadership in America. The LEADS Scholars program offers immeasurable benefit both to both scholars and their agencies. With NIJ advisory and research support, LEADS scholars have designed and conducted studies to help their agencies identify and solve major challenges through research. The program provides officers with professional development, mentorship, and networking opportunities, and NIJ provides editorial support in publishing and promoting research.




This webinar has been presented in partnership with the International Association of Law Enforcement Planners. IALEP is a member-governed organization for people working in, or interested in, planning, policy, budget, performance measurement, analysis, research, and other related functions for criminal justice agencies.
