TOP ONLINE – proof of concept for a web-based traffic offender intervention program in New South Wales, Australia
TOP ONLINE is a web-based traffic offender intervention developed for desktop, tablet and smartphone applications. This work has been motivated by two aims: first, the need to better target traffic offender rehabilitation measures to engage offenders; and, second to address inefficiencies in program delivery and the operation of the Local Court-based Traffic Offender Intervention Program in NSW. TOP ONLINE overcomes some of the obstacles to high fidelity program implementation, specifically concerning content, accessibility, and self-paced learning. This paper details the successful development and pilot testing of the TOP ONLINE: Drugs & Alcohol Unit as proof-of-concept.
