The plan identified two major goals: 1) achieving full MMUCC compliance and 2) converting to a completely electronic reporting system by January 1, 2015.
The cumulative framework of all of these strategies came to be known as the MMUCC Best Practice Toolbox.
Based on the results of the CDIP, the team focused on two overarching goals: achieving total compliance with national MMUCC guidelines and implementing fully electronic crash reporting by all law enforcement agencies.
The intensive final phase of partnering included a classroom-based MMUCC training course followed by technical support in the field on a daily basis.
The project team's efforts were so successful that the schema, or organizational blueprint, developed by Connecticut for MMUCC 4th Edition (current at the time) served as the basis for the MMUCC 5th Edition schema recently released by NHTSA.
The team then began the process of training law enforcement officers on MMUCC terms and concepts.
With that foundation, CTDOT developed a comprehensive, 6-hour classroom course that covers all MMUCC data elements and attributes and includes training videos, visual examples, workgroup exercises, and a period of open discussion.
