The eTRIP Initiative

Electronic Traffic Information Processing(eTRIP)Initiative

The eTRIP initiative is a collaborative effort among state and local agencies to create a seamless and integrated system through which traffic-related information can travel from its point of origin to its end use and analysis. The heart of this undertaking is to eliminate the excessive inefficiencies characteristic of our state’s current paper-based process of collecting and exchanging core business information.

Initially, eTRIP will develop and implement an automated system that will enable law enforcement agencies (LEA’s) to electronically create tickets and collision reports in the field and transmit this data to state repositories and authorized users. The eTRIP initiative has been divided into separate projects that will be completed over several phases. Together, these projects will carry out the following three (3) objectives:

  • Support efforts to provide law enforcement officers methods to electronically capture ticket data, collision report data and other data in the field
  • Develop a statewide data exchange network to allow this data to be transmitted electronically to users
  • Prepare agency systems and repositories to receive electronic traffic data
