Track: Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice
Authors: David Salzer, Patrick Santoso
University of New Hampshire Technology Transfer Center partnered with the NH Departments of Safety and Transportation to analyze GIS Crash data as part of the “Driving Toward Zero” initiative. The goal was to reduce crashes and determine optimum Police placement for the 2013 Laconia Bike Week. Geo-spatial, temporal, and hub and spoke analysis revealed most dangerous routes by time period and allowed state police to tailor deployments to maximum effect.
