International Road Policing Assessment Program (IRPAP)- A Star-Rating System for Road Safety Enforcement.
Keywords: Police Papers - Enforcement
This paper establishes the criteria for a star-rating assessment of road policing. The aim is to achieve a quality based self-assessment of police law enforcement, performance, activities and current practices. Simple, useful and affordable measures are provided as pathways towards improvement. The outcomes of the assessment will enable: benchmarking within the jurisdiction and between countries; monitoring of traffic police performance before and after enhancements; an assessment of common police practices, policies, training and operations against a star-rating model for good practice; and, capacity building in traffic law enforcement and improvements in police professionalism.
