UMassSafe Develops Crash Report E-Manual


In order to improve data collection for Massachusetts crashes, UMassSafe developed an interactive Crash Report E-Manual website as well as a physical data dictionary document to assist law enforcement with crash reporting. Both resources provide detailed information about the reporting process from start to finish, collecting all relevant information in one location.

This interactive, web-based crash report manual contains a searchable data dictionary, guidance for completing the crash location section, as well as instructions for addressing problematic fields, all of which can be used as a toolkit for State and local police.
