This report features five case studies of community-based self-sufficient DWI programs operating at the local level in various communities across the country.
Abstract
Using five case studies, this report identifies and documents community-level self-sufficient impaired-driving programs, and provides guidance to communities either initiating such programs, or adapting other existing programs to function more self-sufficiently. These programs represent the diversity of DWI programming while meeting all of the criteria specified in the definition of "self-sufficient." Two of the programs are enforcement oriented, two are focused on offender supervision, and one program is a multijurisdictional community traffic safety coalition providing prevention and intervention programming. In addition to the five programs featured as case studies, other DWI programs with self-sufficient components are briefly described. This report has been developed to encourage local and regional government officials, traffic safety advocates and community leaders to support local efforts in the development and implementation of self-sufficient DWI programs at the community level and to promote greater community participation in addressing impaired driving.
