The International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Section (INL) of the United States Embassy in Tbilisi continues assisting the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia Patrol Police Department. December 110-14,INL and Dunwoody, GA Police Department delivered the third training this year in the traffic and accident prevention program. 20 patrol police officers from Tbilisi and the regions attended the course on “Traffic Crash Investigation”. Traffic crash investigations consume an inordinate amount of a police officer’s duty hours. However, this training detailed techniques to significantly reduce the time spent investigating and documenting (non-injury) crashes. Dunwoody police taught the officers how to investigate and appropriately document non-injury accidents that will satisfy legal standards, citizen’s concerns, and provide the necessary information for insurance companies. All training participants received a certification of completion and were able to successfully demonstrate their understanding of traffic crash investigations during practical exercises. As a result of the training, the patrol police will use new tools for documenting traffic crashes and significantly shorten time spent on the entire process.
