“DDACTS” is an acronym that stands for Data Driven Approach to Crime and Traffic Safety. The Evesham Police Department relies heavily on collecting crime and traffic collision data to place our officers in areas where there is a significant uptick in social harms. As a result of this proactive approach to deploying personnel, we have experienced a significant decrease in traffic collisions and crimes in our assigned DDACTS Zone and Township-wide. Please take look at our website for more information on our DDACTS Operational Model.
