Feasibility of a Web-Based System for Police Crash Report Review and Information Recording

Police crash reports include useful additional information that is not available in crash summary records. This information may include police sketches and narratives and is often needed for detailed site-specific safety analysis. In addition, some agencies also routinely review police crash reports to correct miscoded and missing crash types. As a result, safety analysts often spend much of their time reviewing police crash reports on a regular basis. However, reviewing police crash reports and recording review information in Florida has not been an easy process. This project developed a Web-based system to facilitate the process of reviewing police crash reports and recording review results. The system allows projects to be set up for specific study locations and specific review questions. The review questions can be set up for different data entry formats, including dropdown list, checkbox, radio button, and text box. A user-friendly interface is provided to allow the users to review the police crash reports specified in a project, and the review results are saved to their respective crash records in the database, which can then be downloaded to a local drive for further analysis. The system could significantly reduce the current police crash report review processing time. Appendices include a User's Guide and Beta Test Results.
