Maine Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutor’s Program

Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutors (TSRPs) coordinate an inter-agency, multidisciplinary approach to the investigation and prosecution of impaired driving and other traffic crimes. They do so by providing training, education, and technical support to prosecutors and law enforcement personnel throughout their states and encouraging positive information-sharing relationships and interagency cooperation to increase the effectiveness of traffic safety crime investigation and prosecution throughout Maine.

The TSRP program is funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and coordinated through the cooperative efforts of The National Traffic Law Center and the National Association of Prosecutor Coordinators. Currently, there are TSRPs in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. 

The Maine Bureau of Highway Safety provides the guidance and funding for Maine’s TSRP positions. Maine’s program is administered by Dirigo Safety, LLC, a contractor for the Maine Bureau of Highway Safety.
