Traffic Records Program
Alaska Traffic Records Coordinating Committee
The Alaska Traffic Records Coordinating Committee was created to bring agencies together who are interested in reducing traffic injuries and deaths by improving the timeliness, accuracy, completeness, uniformity, integration and accessibility of traffic records data. The ATRCC meets once each month to discuss ongoing and upcoming traffic records projects and issues.
VISION: Provide users with timely, accurate, complete, consistent, and well-documented traffic records information enabling analysis and supporting timely decision-making.
MISSION: Support data and data exchange improvements and identify and secure the necessary resources for these improvements through coordinated multi-agency leadership to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of traffic records data collection and analysis, and facilitate timely data sharing and use.
OBJECTIVE: The objective of the ATRCC is to provide strong leadership and coordinate resources to address the timeliness, accuracy, completeness, uniformity, integration, reliability, interoperability, and accessibility of traffic records data.
GOALS: The following goals were identified for Alaska’s traffic records systems as part of the strategic planning process:
- Provide ongoing coordination among all stakeholders in support of initiatives and projects which improve the quality of the State’s traffic records.
- Improve the timeliness of traffic records data collection and sharing.
- Increase the accuracy of traffic records data.
- Increase the completeness of traffic records data.
- Promote uniformity of traffic records data.
- Promote the ability to integrate traffic records data.
- Facilitate access to traffic records data.
PURPOSE: The purpose of the ATRCC is to:
- Provide a forum for the discussion of highway safety data and traffic records issues and report on any such issues to the agencies and organizations in the State that create, maintain, and use highway safety data and traffic records;
- Consider and coordinate the views of organizations in the State that are involved in the administration, collection, and use of highway safety data and traffic records systems;
- Represent the interests of the agencies and organizations within the traffic records system to outside organizations;
- Review and evaluate new technologies to keep the highway safety data and traffic records systems up to date;
- Develop a Traffic Records Strategic Plan that:
- identifies and addresses existing deficiencies in the State’s highway safety data and traffic records systems;
- specifies how deficiencies in the systems are identified;
- prioritizes the needs and sets goals for improving the systems;
- identifies performance-based measures by which progress toward those goals will be determined; and
- specifies how the State will use traffic records grant funding and other funds of the State to address the needs and goals identified in its Strategic Plan.

AFFILIATED COMMITTEES & PROJECTS
During the summer of 2016 Alaska conducted its traffic records assessment. These assessments are required by the U.S. DOT's FAST Act in order for the state to received 405c Traffic Records Safety Information Systems grant funding. The assessment allows the state's data systems to be peer reviewed by subject matter experts from across the nation. This evaluation provides data systems stakeholders with critical feedback on the state of their respective systems. The system stakeholders then use the conclusions of the assessment to guide future improvements.
Alaska Traffic Records Resource Guide
The Alaska Traffic Records Resource Guide (TRRG) combines the efforts of the ATRCC along with Traffic Data System Managers from around the state to illustrate Alaska's Traffic Records system component databases. The TRRG is a resource for Traffic Safety data collectors, system managers, and data users to utilize in the effort to reduce fatal and major injuries on Alaska's trafficways. As additional Traffic Records systems are identified, or current systems are updated, this Guide will be revised.
NHTSA Traffic Records Grant Funds
The ATRCC actively engages in obtaining Traffic Records Grant funds from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). NHTSA's Traffic Records Grant funds enable projects such as updating the police collision report form training manual; management and storage of crash records, collision data, and collision injury data; and the implementation of TraCS throughout the state.
Alaska’s Multi-Agency Justice Integration Consortium has been set-up to help agencies more efficiently share complete, accurate, timely information in order to enhance the performance of the criminal justice system as a whole. MAJIC meets every other Thursday, and is comprised of representatives from 20 organizations across the state.
Traffic and Criminal Software (TraCS) Steering Committee
Alaska's TraCS Steering Committee was formed to enable the implementation of TraCS throughout the state. The TraCS program will equip law enforcement with an electronic citation and collision report form, which will eliminate the current paper forms. The data entered into the electronic form will allow faster data transfer from the police officer to the end data users. This multi-phased web enablement project will allow officers to fill out collision forms and submit them via the web.
