Exploring Law Enforcement Attitudes and Beliefs about Traffic Safety Enforcement
July 8, 2019 at 1:00 pm (MDT)
This webinar will summarize the results of a recent project to better understand how the culture within law enforcement agencies impacts engagement in traffic safety enforcement. Specifically, we examined (1) how law enforcement leaders and officers prioritize traffic safety relative to other public safety issues; (2) self-reported attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors about traffic safety enforcement activities; (3) law enforcement’s perceptions of how traffic safety enforcement behaviors have changed in recent years; and (4) how prioritization of traffic safety attitudes, beliefs, enforcement behaviors, and perceptions of change vary between leaders and officers, agency types, and urban and rural settings.
The results are based on a survey developed and implemented by the Center developed which was completed by 568 officers in 19 agencies (four statewide, six sheriff’s offices, and nine municipal agencies) in four states (Connecticut, Idaho, Illinois, and Montana). The survey results were augmented by 10 interviews with law enforcement leaders. The survey examined self-reported engagement in traffic safety enforcement efforts addressing seat belt use, distracted driving, impaired driving, and speeding. Prioritization, attitudes, beliefs about enforcement and support for enforcement, barriers, and training were explored in the survey.
This project was sponsored by the Traffic Safety Culture Pooled Fund Program hosted by the Montana Department of Transportation.
