Traffic Records Governance Council
The Traffic Records Governance Council (TRGC) is Washington’s traffic records coordinating committee and responsible for furthering the mission of the TRP. The TRGC provides oversight to four committees and includes members from ten Washington State agencies.
Electronic Traffic Information Processing (eTRIP)
The eTRIP Committee supports the TRGC through the management and maintenance of the data systems that uphold the electronic collection, storage, analysis, and transmission of Traffic Records data. The eTRIP governs the Statewide Electronic Collision and Ticketing Online Record (SECTOR) system.
Traffic Records Integration Program (TRIP)
The purpose of the TRIP Committee is to advise TRIP staff on data governance issues and to review data user applications that request multi-sector data. In addition, the TRIP Committee is responsible for helping formulate research ideas and critical questions that may be completed using TRIP data. The committee may also provide insight on other potential data sources that may be brought into the TRIP data warehouse. You can view TRIP research briefs on the Washington State Statistical Analysis website.
Grant Management and Review (GMR)
The purpose of the GMR Committee is to facilitate accountability and shared expertise among grantees to ensure efficient and well-coordinated use of resources. The GMR provides a forum to discuss traffic records grants progress reports and project proposals to promote the exchange of expertise and knowledge across partner agencies for the formulation of optimal technical and business solutions. The committee also provides a means for grantees to establish accountability to the TRGC as they report on the status and progress of grants throughout the year. As barriers to project success are identified through review and discussion, the GMR serves as a venue for recommending solutions and convening partnerships to address gaps and blocking issues.
Traffic Data Analysis Evaluation (TDAE)
The purpose of this committee is to exchange traffic records analyses best practices, outcomes of analyses, and develop solutions addressing data limitations. The committee is responsible for developing method briefs in order to standardize analysis approaches and may provide review of research products. The committee also provides the analyses required for updating the Strategic Highway Safety Plan, Target Zero.
SECTOR Replacement Governance (SRG)
The SECTOR Replacement Governance Committee is not a permanent committee. It is a special committed formed for the sole purpose of facilitating the transition to a new crash and ticketing system. The Statewide Electronic Collision and Ticketing Online Records (SECTOR) system will be replaced by the Traffic and Criminal Software (TraCS) National Model. The SRG Committee consists of executive level decision-makers at partner stakeholder agencies, including the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, the Administrative Office of the Courts, the Washington State Patrol, the Department of Licensing, the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs, the Department of Transportation, and others.
