According to CHP, the vehi- cle swerved to the left and re- Grant funds will be used to expedite collision reporting Every year in California, hundreds of thousands of col- lisions occur, resulting in an equal number of crash re- ports by various law enforce- ment agencies throughout the state. The collision reports are then submitted to the Califor- nia Highway Patrol who maintains the Statewide Inte- grated Traffic Records Sys- tems. This system is a traffic management oversight sys- tem, which provides statisti- cal reports of traffic collisions to California law enforcement and government agencies, fed- eral government agencies and the public. With the help of federal funding, the CHP has em- barked on a two-year project to make the system more ac- cessible to the state's allied Lagencies and the public. This grant is entitled the "Allied Agencies Collision Re- porting Project." "This project will upgrade the SWITRS system to allow for efficient and effective elec- tronic submission of collision reports by the CHP and other law enforcement agencies," said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow. In an effort to meet the goals established for this pro- ject, the CHP will obtain hardware and consulting ser- vices to provide a statewide, external and internal SWITRS operating system that efficiently and effective- ly automates the request from and responses to CHP and Allied Agencies for SWITRS data and reporting. The AACR SWITRS project addresses the lag of input time J#y creating an automated WANTED OLD COIN COLLECTIONS...

The project will also address the accuracy of the data provided by the SWITRS system; a set of web services will be built to provide an error manage- ment process, which ensures accurate and complete data are input into the SWITRS database. The SWITRS system was es- tablished in 1972. It includes an open database and pro- vides users reports within a 24-hour period. SWITRS re- ports for 2001 - 2008 are avail- able on the CHP's Internet Web site: chp.ca.gov. Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. .,, Need help REPI NG entered the roadway, before Schake overcorrected and lost control.

Law and Order policy Information that appears in this column is compiled from the Plumas County Sheriff's Office' activity log, the county correctional center's booking log and California Highway Patrol press releases. The Sheriff's Blotter shows initial charges. In some instances the charges may change after the dispatch report. We do not report suspects' names in arrests for public intoxication or drunken driving unless accompanied by another serious charge, such as probation viol.arian, a vehicle accident or another felony. The fact that someone has been arrested and charged with a crime does not constitute guilt. The case may never appear in court if the district attorney determines there is insufficient evidence to prosecute. The fact that someone was involved in an automobile collision does not constitute liability or fault Minors are named as legal-age drivers at 16, unless they are charged with a crime in conjunction with an incident. The CHP determines whether injuries are characterized as minor, moderate or fatal.
