Understanding law enforcement attitudes and beliefs about traffic safety

The Center at Montana State University will be conducting a comparative case study to better understand law enforcement’s attitudes and beliefs about traffic safety. This research project is a part of the Traffic Safety Culture Transportation Pooled Fund and will examine the differences between agencies in two rural and two urban states. The researchers will conduct both qualitative and quantitative analysis to provide a deeper understanding of the cases involved. The project findings will be based on the analysis of self-reported responses to a survey and augmented by interviews of law enforcement leaders. The Center will make recommendations about methods to increase engagement in traffic safety efforts based on beliefs identified in the study.

The West Virginia PFS Positive Culture Framework Project starts with this video from the Community Building Toolkit.

The purpose of the Community Building Toolkit is to build capacity for positive community change by connecting the people of West Virginia based on their common values toward caring, health, and safety. Some people in West Virginia believe that underage drinking and the misuse of prescriptions among youth are the “norms,” when in fact, they are not. It is time to reconnect with who we really are: a proud, hardworking, and resilient state.

Please visit the "Who We Are. West Virginia" YouTube channel or for more information.

Positive Culture Framework Overview
The Positive Culture Framework (PCF) is an approach based on our latest research about improving health and safety in our communities and organizations. PCF seeks to cultivate health and safe environments. This framework builds on the shared values, beliefs and attitudes that already exist in a culture to promote health and safety. This is a natural next step from “Positive Community Norms” and builds on the recognition that the solutions exist in the community. The Positive Culture Framework is a generalized process that can be used to address any public health or safety issue. Examples may be shared from the areas of traffic safety, substance abuse, and violence prevention.
