BASIC UNIFORM CRASH INVESTIGATION COURSE

Basic Uniform Crash Investigation is a dynamic “Crash Course” in crashes. It is ideal for new officers, as it lays the foundation for the proper information gathering and investigation of motor vehicle crashes. The class covers crash scene safety, standardized terminology and processes, a step-by-step examination of eCrash and its functions, and a live crash simulation to provide hands-on learning. The goal of this class is to send officers back to their departments better equipped to efficiently and accurately investigate motor vehicle crashes. Subsequently, this will lead to more standardization between officers and departments, less FTO time spent  on crash investigation, fewer complaints, and fewer court appearances.  

Class is designed to provide first-line instruction of police officers to correctly investigate traffic crashes. Class will consist 50% classroom instruction, 50% Crash Investigation. (Closed roadway with crashed vehicles for accurate, hands-on experience.)

This class is intended to provide officers with standardized terminology, increased e-crash familiarity, investigative tools, and guidelines for accurate, informative, and relevant narratives regarding crash documentation.

  • This class is recommended for all officers who work traffic crashes as part of their duties
  • Officers will be graded on their performance investigating staged crash on ALTSC driving range
  • Attendees will receive 8 hours CEU for submission to APOST for each class completed.
