Providing society with a safe and secure highway system by reducing traffic crashes, injuries and deaths through fair, impartial and reasonable enforcement of traffic laws is one of the primary missions of law enforcement.
The enforcement of all traffic laws, statutes, and their related administrative programs is a responsibility most often shared by the judiciary, prosecutors, law enforcement agencies, corrections and other criminal justice components, and some private service agencies. Therefore, we must all work together to ensure that the motoring public and other highway users have a travel environment as safe and secure as possible, free from the threat of dangerous and irresponsible drivers.
The National Sheriffs' Association, is proud to have taken the lead in researching, testing, and publishing a model program entitled "Guidelines for a Suspended or Revoked Operator Enforcement Program." This program has proven to be a very effective enforcement tool for administrators desiring to address the growing problem of multiple suspended or revoked operators who openly disregard compliance with the law by continuing to drive.
The Guidelines for a Suspended or Revoked Operator Enforcement Program is the product of numerous contributors, without whom completion of this work would not have been possible. The Traffic Safety Committee of the National Sheriffs' Association is extremely grateful to all the agencies and individuals mentioned below for making a significant effort toward the success of this project. Special acknowledgment goes to the following two agencies for providing critical operational and evaluation data on the project:
