Crime / Traffic Analysis & Policing Strategies (CTAPS)

Crime / Traffic Analysis and Policing Strategies (CTAPS) is a multilayered dynamic approach to crime reduction, quality of life improvement, and personnel and resource management.

Geographic Information

CTAPS employs geographical information and is intended to map crime and identify problems.

Crime & Traffic Trends

In regular meetings, ranking police officials meet with Area Commanders to discuss crime and traffic trends, and concerns. Collectively, they devise strategies and tactics to solve problems, reduce crime, and ultimately improve quality of life in their assigned areas.

Cost-Effective Strategies

Commanders are held accountable for the success and failure of these strategies, as all action items are documented by an Executive Officer. Using the data from CTAPS to effectively and efficiently deploy resources is both cost-effective and appropriate, given the Community Governance policing philosophy.
