This training will focus on improving the data collected by CT Police Officers in the course of investigating crashes throughout the state. The training will be a classroom presentation designed to familiarize the officers with what information should be gathered and documented on the CT PR-1.

The class will also offer a “hands on” portion, where the officer will be able to interact with large vehicles and observe where to obtain the information needed to complete the CT PR-1.

POSTC Continuing Education Credits will be offered for completing this class.


If you’re interested in booking an FMCSA Training please contact Chuck Grasso, Brandon O’Brien, or Tara Simler.

Crash Data Repository Training – Connecticut’s First COMPLETE Crash Data Analysis Tool

The Crash Data Repository is a web-based query and analysis tool designed at the University of Connecticut, in the Connecticut Transportation Institute. The Repository provides unprecedented public and private access to crash data, allowing users to research crash statistics in their neighborhood, town, country, and state. The goal of the Repository is to continually provide members with timely, accurate, complete and  uniform crash data. In addition to the Department of Public Safety and Connecticut Department of Transportation databases, a third database was developed in January 2015 to house the new crash data captured by the revised PR-1. Future additions to the Repository will include the integration of other vital data sources such as EMS, roadway geometry, and citation data.
