Marlboro Township (NJ) PD Implements LexisNexis Solution to Streamline Vehicle Accident Reporting Process

Automates the On-scene Crash Reporting and Distribution Function Resulting in Increased Efficiencies, Cost Savings

LexisNexis® Risk Solutions announces that the Marlboro Township (NJ) Police Department has implemented an electronic crash reporting system that will drive internal efficiencies and improve citizen services.  The new system enables the Marlboro Township PD to fully automate its accident reporting process from beginning to end, resulting in time/cost savings, significant reduction in errors, more effective information sharing and the ability to re-allocate resources to offer an increased public safety presence.   

 “The Marlboro Township PD is responsible for developing, filing and issuing roughly 1,600 accident reports per year,” said Sergeant Darren Vuzzo, Ph.D, Administrative Sergeant, Accreditation Manager, Marlboro Township PD.  “Prior to this solution, our officers were handwriting reports on-scene, manually entering them into the central repository and physically mailing them when requested by a citizen or insurance company.  This labor intensive process took time away from our officers’ public safety duties and often resulted in reporting errors.  The new system eliminates the manual processing and allows our officers to clear accident scenes in about half the time it used to take.”

Leveraging the LexisNexis eCrash solution, officers are able to file electronic reports on-scene through interfaces currently available in 21 police vehicles.  LexisNexis eCrash captures all of the required data and automatically uploads it to a central database that maintains, stores and secures the information.  Requests for copies of the accident report are now done via the Internet instead of in-person at the station, saving significant time for both officers and citizens. 

An analytic component of LexisNexis eCrash also allows officers to easily identify accident prone locations, providing the Marlboro Township PD with improved capabilities to implement effective strategies to reduce traffic related accidents, injuries and fatalities.  LexisNexis eCrash provides the following benefits:

Simplify accident report data entry, storage, access and distribution

Reduce manual handling, save time, reduce costs associated with copying accident reports and improve administrative efficiency

Improve service to the public by allowing involved parties to purchase reports online, 24/7

Decrease walk-in and mail report requests, and eliminate the agency’s need to input accident data

Improve agency’s investigative strength by providing easy access to their accident/crash reports and those of other participating agencies

“The Marlboro Township PD is taking a leading role in New Jersey by being one of the first agencies to launch the LexisNexis eCrash system.  We look forward to working with other law enforcement agencies in New Jersey as we expand our presence in the state,” said Roy Marler, vice president, LexisNexis Risk Solutions.  “We are pleased to be assisting the Marlboro Township PD in providing better service to their citizens.” 

eCrash is provided at no cost to the Marlboro Township PD.  For additional information on eCrash, visit https://ecrash.lexisnexis.com/.
