Development, Implementation, and Evaluation of a Community-Based Trespass Prevention Model

Most trespassing casualties can be avoided. The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and its safety partners conducted studies to better target and implement outreach, public education, and law enforcement efforts. The results, along with national workshops, led to the Community Trespass Prevention Guide, which documents a collaborative, step-by-step problem-solving approach for local communities, as well as the Community, Analysis, Response, and Evaluation—or CARE—model. In this article, the research and process that led to CARE are outlined, along with real-world demonstrations of the model in West Palm Beach, Florida and Worcester, Massachusetts.
