Highway Safety

Since 2001, the Colorado State Patrol has achieved remarkable success in reducing the fatal and injury crash rates through high visibility, strict enforcement and maximum deployment of available resources. The 2011-2015 traffic safety strategy is designed to allow business unit managers the flexibility to formulate tactics build upon the vision of the agency while improving public safety. The strategic plan emphasizes organizational outcome measures while empowering business unit managers to develop customized, intelligence-lead strategies to achieve desired results based on the challenges in their individual areas. These performance measures and strategies will align at the organizational level to ensure the overall success of traffic safety strategies within the Patrol.
