Our traffic program is designed for law enforcement personnel that are involved with emergency vehicle operations and traffic scene collision investigations. These classes teach officers how to recognize and collect at-scene evidence, accurately complete the standardized accident investigation report, understand the most effective interviewing techniques, and preparing evidence for court. As they advance, they will have a better understanding of vehicle collision concepts of pre and post collision paths, the technical skills for calculating and mapping out the scene. As well as formulas that are applied to specific accident situations and conditions. Each course will build on previous knowledge, and ensure students continue to develop their skills on various topics. Courses must be taken in order and require successful completion to move on in the collision series.
Students will receive a certificate of completion from the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission. Any necessary meal and lodging arrangements, and the cost incurred thereby, will be the responsibility of the applicant and/or their agency.

Upon successfully completing this course, the students will have a working knowledge of photography, marks on the roadway, information from vehicles, lamp analysis, blood draws, and the human factors associated with collisions. They will also review the concepts of Newtonian physics and how they apply to collision investigations.
Teach basic techniques to investigate collisions while keeping it easy to understand. Upon successfully completing this course, the students will have a basic knowledge of photography, marks on the roadway, information from vehicles, lamp analysis, blood draws, and scene diagramming.
Upon successfully completing this course, the students will have a working knowledge and expand upon the knowledge gained in both the Basic and Advanced Collision Investigation courses.
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to conduct commentary drives, remedial driver training, and instruct students in the laws of physics relating to vehicle motions. Participants will also be able to identify common driving errors, improper attitudes and unsafe driving techniques.
