Abstract

This brief is intended to provide law enforcement leaders with guidance on how to address organizational culture that may currently run counter to roadway safety best practices. As agencies seek to mitigate the risk factors for officer-involved collisions and struck-by incidents and work to develop a culture of roadway safety, leaders and officers should look to the National Law Enforcement Roadway Safety Program (NLERSP) for support and guidance on actionable steps that can be taken. Funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, the NLERSP is managed by the National Policing Institute in partnership with the Institute for Intergovernmental Research.
