*UPDATE*

To our police agencies across the Commonwealth: On February 17, 2021, PennDOT published the specifications for the new crash reporting system data standard that will go into effect on January 1,2022 as the official data standard for all crash submissions. Software vendors have been asked to update their products to comply with the new standards so that their police agencies can begin to send their crash data on or before January 1, 2022. On the evening of Tuesday, September 28th, 2021, PennDOT is planning on implementing a “soft release” of the data standard. This means that the crash reporting system website will become compliant with the new data standard on that date and that software vendors can begin submitting crash reports using the new standard at any time after September 28th. This document outlines all the changes made to the crash reporting system as part of the new published data standard.

**Changes to the Crash Reporting System for 2022**

The primary objective when investigating crashes is to obtain information that can be used to develop crash prevention and crash reduction programs.  The online Crash Reporting System (CRS) is designed to do just that: to assist PennDOT with the collection, timeliness, and accuracy of data. The Highway Safety Network (HSN) was awarded the “Traffic Records Program Administrators” (TRPA) project grant by PennDOT to plan, coordinate and implement all CRS law enforcement activities.

The project provides funding for Traffic Records Program Administrators known as (TRPAs), strategically placed throughout the Commonwealth. The regional TRPAs provide trainings, 24/7 technical support to ensure timeliness and accuracy of crash data electronically submitted to PennDOT by Law Enforcement Agencies (LEA’s).  Additionally, PennDOT has provided funding for the e-filing of citations and crash reports through TraCS software known as the “PA TraCS to Locals” (PA TTL) project. Trainings and 24/7 technical support are also provided by the TRPAs.
