Traffic Safety Program
The Arkansas State Police Highway Safety Office provides grant funds from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to support the Criminal Justice Institute’s Traffic Safety Law Enforcement and Prosecutor Training Project, the central source of nationally recognized traffic safety certification courses for Arkansas law enforcement.
In addition, the Arkansas State Police Highway Safety Office provides NHTSA grant funds to support the Law Enforcement Liaison Project. One facet of this program is to provide law enforcement liaisons who promote the year-round participation of Arkansas law enforcement agencies in Selective Traffic Enforcement Programs (STEP) and non-STEP programs. The Law Enforcement Liaison program promotes the participation of Arkansas law enforcement agencies in two annual nationwide traffic enforcement-related campaigns titled Click it or Ticket (CIOT) and Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over (DSOGPO).
The law enforcement liaisons conduct annual regional occupant protection/impaired driving conferences. These conferences promote increased enforcement of impaired driving, seat belt and child restraint laws, as well as promote participation in state and national traffic enforcement campaigns.
Traffic Safety courses are offered upon request. If your agency would like to host a course, please contact us.
