A Brief History of LEADRS

  • In 2001 and 2002, Texas officials were trying to determine why alcohol-related fatalities were on the rise while DWI arrests were declining.

  • LEADRS conducted a series of focus groups with a panel of Texas peace officers and prosecutors to determine the issues with DUI/DWI arrests.

  • Based on the data gathered in these, a state-specific DWI reporting system was designed.



Two prevailing answers
Two Prevailing Answers

  • Lack of Prosecution

    • Pleas to other offenses

    • Case dismissal

  • Paperwork Redundancy

    • Too many forms

    • Same information on all of the forms


Officers think
Officers Think…

  • Why should I have to do all this paperwork for a Misdemeanor B?

  • Why do I have to write the defendant’s biographical information so many times?

  • Why should I spend this much time on the case if the prosecutor is going to plea them down or dismiss the case?


Dwi prosecutions
DWI Prosecutions

  • They are among the most difficult criminal cases to prove.

  • They almost always involve technical and scientific testimony and juror empathy.

  • Officer evidence is subjective.

  • 80% of cases officers testifies on will be a DWI.



Officers killed in line of duty
Officers Killed in Line of Duty

  • There were a total of 238 total Officers killed in the line of duty in 2001.

  • 72 officers were killed on 09-11-01 in the terrorist attacks on NYC. 30%

  • 69 officers were killed in 2001 by vehicular accidents with impaired drivers. 29%

    As reported in Officer Down Memorial Page, 2001 statistics.


Problems with current reporting methods
Problems with Current Reporting Methods

  • Standard DWI arrest processing can take up to six hours to complete .

    • Average time from arrival at scene to completion of report.

  • Current case reports lack standardization.

    • 10 different officers = 10 different reports


Problems with current reporting methods1
Problems with Current Reporting Methods

  • Standard DWI arrest processing diverts resources:

    • Time officers spend processing DWIs mean fewer officers on the street

      • Slower call response

      • Fewer cover/back-up officers

  • Too many forms with redundant information makes reporting tedious.
