Traffic Safety Program

The Traffic Safety Program is designed to improve the ability of prosecutors, law enforcement officers, and allied professionals in the detection and prosecution of impaired driving, vehicular homicide, and other traffic cases. The Conference of District Attorneys strives to serve as a resource by providing consistent training and technical assistance in these areas. These resources are made possible by a grant from the North Carolina Governor’s Highway Safety Program. 

The Traffic Safety Program serves all prosecutors and law enforcement officers in North Carolina. In addition, the members of the traffic team assist with training and technical advice for other traffic professionals including members of the Governor’s Highway Safety Program, Forensic Tests for Alcohol Branch, and Mother Against Drunk Driving.

Since 2003, under the direction of the Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutor (TSRP) and with the assistance of regional TSRPs, the Highway Safety Czar, the Traffic Safety Legal Assistant , and numerous other resources throughout the state and nation, the Conference of District Attorneys has provided various resource manuals, primers, quick reference guides, case law updates, numerous annual trainings for prosecutors and law enforcement, a tri-annual newsletter “For the Record” and various other forms of technical assistance for traffic safety professionals. Members of the Traffic Safety Program serve as liaisons with law enforcement, other members of the traffic safety community, advocacy groups, and community and civic organizations throughout the state.
