Strategies and Action Steps

TRCC Management, Strategic Planning, and Data Use and Integration
  1. Update the TRCC charter with a signature page for all member agencies and include a formal approval process (Priority 1)
  2. Develop performance measures for the strategic plan strategies per the NHTSA Model Performance Measures for State Traffic Records Systems document (Priority 1)
  3. Develop a comprehensive Traffic Records Inventory by consolidating the discrete systems documentation maintained by custodial agencies into a coherent whole to improve accessibility and analysis for all stakeholders and to help encourage interactions between data analysts, data users, and those whose jobs are tangential to traffic safety (Priority 1)
  4. Use a Strategic Planning Process with all TRCC Members for the next update to the strategic plan (Priority 1).
  5. Review and set priorities through a formal prioritization process (Priority 1)
  6. Take a more active role in the identification, funding, development, prioritization, and implementation of traffic records improvement projects (Priority 2)
  7. Leverage its collaborative efforts to ensure that all components of the traffic records data system (TRS) are supported by formal data quality management programs (Priority 4)
  8. Develop a traffic records data “warehouse” that provides agencies the ability to manage information (Priority 4)
  9. Develop data governance protocols in place that appropriately link and identify traffic records data or documents the use of such data by a variety of internal and external users (Priority 4)
  10. Develop a systematic process to conduct, analyze and set performance measures with consideration for behavioral, social, spatial, and temporal variations (Priority 4)
  11. Consider employing a research and program development arm of its Office of Traffic Safety that assists decision-makers and the public with providing and analyzing up-to-date data, especially for those that are interested in generating documents separate from annual or strategic plans such as white papers, fact sheets, conference papers, etc (Priority 4)
Crash
  1. Formalize the process to incorporate changes into the crash data dictionary and corresponding documents (Priority 1)
  2. Improve the consistency and reliability of delivery of the crash files from law enforcement to the State to minimize processing effort and reduce the time between crash and data availability and reduces opportunities for data quality corruption (Priority 1)
  3. Implement more timely uploads to NCATS to give users closer to real-time data with which to make critical programmatic and infrastructure enhancements (Priority 1)
  4. Enhance procedures for managing errors and incomplete data and formalize efforts to ensure that data from reports with validation errors are fixed and entered into the repository. This should include formal changes to the data dictionary as necessary (Priority 1)
  5. Implement a report for officers related to timeliness, accuracy and completeness feedback. This can be useful for training, updates to manuals, and form revisions. Allow feedback from users to collectors to further enhance data quality (Priority 2)
  6. Establish performance measures related to the quality categories (accuracy, completeness, etc.). These should include baselines and timeframes to establish effectiveness as data quality improvement initiatives are implemented (Priority 4)
 Vehicle/Driver
  1. Increase active representation on the Nevada Traffic Records Coordinating Committee (TRCC) and providing vehicle data system quality management reports which could potentially result in obtaining priority consideration for federal traffic records grant funding to enhance the vehicle data system (Priority 1)
  2. Attain the driver and vehicles system data from the DMV and link to the crash system NCATS (Priority 1)
  3. Obtain the required authorizations or attain a non-proprietary version of the driver system documents and narratives to assist with future assessments and system evaluations (Priority 2)
  4. Participate in the Performance and Registration System Management (PRISM) program (Priority 4)
  5. Evaluate the current AAMVA recommended title brands for potential Nevada branding additions (Priority 4)
  6. Develop a quality control program and performance measures for the driver system (Priority 4)
Strategy 4: Roadway
  1. Set standards for data elements (e.g., MIRE) and data collection (Priority 1)
  2. Create documentation of the data dictionary (Priority 1)
  3. Coordinate with all the entities using and providing roadway data, including entities in the TRCC / NECTS (Priority 1)
  4. Set access standards for all the State users (Priority 1)
  5. Use roadway database information already available (e.g., for timeliness calculations) (Priority 1)
  6. Organizing the roadway history for archiving in conjunction with the vendor (Priority 1)
  7. Develop a database or enterprise system that combines roadway and traffic crash data elements (Priority 3)
  8. Develop a formal quality control program (Priority 4)
Strategy 5: Citation/Adjudication
  1. Explore the development of a complete set of performance measures related to the quality of citation systems’ data (Priority 4)
  2. Establish an official set of security protocols governing data access, modification and release that can be applied to each court management system (Priority 4)
  3. Encourage all court systems to standardize their information systems using established national protocols and standards (Priority 4)
Strategy 6: EMS/Injury Surveillance
  1. Share information and data management reports with the TRCC on a regular basis (Priority 1)
  2. Develop a system where multiple EMS/injury surveillance data sets can be accessed and analyzed together to solve a specific problem (Priority 4)
  3. Establish performance measures for each system following the ‘Model Performance Measures for State Traffic Records Systems’ publication (Priority 4)
  4. Build on the success of the integration of the State crash file and the NTR and integrate all components of the injury surveillance system (Priority 4)
  5. Develop the core injury surveillance data into an important resource to define, evaluate, and support highway safety programs and projects through enhanced coordination with the State’s health agencies (Priority 4)
