National Law Enforcement Roadway Safety Program

 

Project Summary 

The National Law Enforcement Roadway Safety Program (NLERSP) is an evidence-based and data-driven program that provides training and technical assistance to state, local, and tribal law enforcement with the goal of reducing the number of officers injured or killed on the nation’s roadways. The NLERSP is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance, and managed by the National Police Foundation in partnership with the Institute for Intergovernmental Research.

The NLERSP provides a suite of no-cost, in-person training courses for executives, patrol officers, and trainers. Additionally, the NLERSP provides customized technical assistance (TA) to agencies to improve their existing training, policies, procedures, and programs related to law enforcement roadway safety. This assistance can include review and development of agency policies on roadway-related issues, review and assessment of an agency’s roadway safety training, assisting with the replication of best practices in agencies, and/or providing research translation services related to roadway safety research.
