Sheriff's departments to receive predictive software
Commissioner David W. Purkey of the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security says the department’s lifesaving, predictive software will be donated to all 95 county sheriffs’ offices in Tennessee free of charge. The predictive models are 70% accurate where alcohol, drug, and crashs may occur. The goal of the program is to reduce traffic crashes and improve crash outcomes. Historical data is used to predict how likely a particular kind of incident could occur in an area at a given time. Forecasts are formed based on the date, time, and location of historical traffic crashes in combination with current weather forecasts and knowledge of upcoming events that are likely to affect traffic volume or traffic safety in a significant way. Sheriffs’ offices can now use both forecast and the historical data to guide them to the places where they are likely to have the greatest impact on traffic safety.
