TIRF releases new report, Alcohol Interlock Programs: Data Management System Implementation

 The Traffic Injury Research Foundation (TIRF) is pleased to release its latest report on alcohol interlock programs entitled, Alcohol Interlock Programs: Data Management System Implementation. The report is part of the work being completed for the Ignition Interlock Technical Assistance Project funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Alcohol Interlock Programs: Data Management System Implementation looks at the implementation of an alcohol ignition interlock program reporting system designed to automate routine tasks relating to the management of interlocked offenders. Through automation, agencies can streamline program activities; reduce or provide for the re-allocation of existing staff and workload; improve program management; improve data integrity and security; increase the timeliness of updates and the exchange of information; and, increase efficiency of communication and messaging from the administering agency to offenders, service providers, and program partners.

The publication provides an overview of some important issues to consider when transitioning from a paper-based system to an automated system. It is structured in four key sections: plan development; system components; essential system requirements; and, vendor interactions. It also includes a checklist for agencies to assist in the implementation of an automated data management system as well as examples of data management systems and their elements from various jurisdictions in the United States.  

Printed copies of the publication can be ordered through TIRF by contacting tirf@tirf.ca or 1-877-238-5235 ext. 304.
