Title Washington's Target Zero Teams Project: Reduction in Fatalities During Year One.
Publication Date Nov 2012

Abstract Eighteen WSP troopers and three sergeants were selected to join the TZTP based on their training, experience, and motivation in enforcing impaired driving. Three detachments of six troopers and one sergeant were deployed in each of the three TZTP counties. The TZTP troopers positions were backfilled so that the WSP did not experience a loss of troopers on regular patrol and that the TZTP did not detract from already-existing WSP initiatives. As in the NEET pilot project, the detachments were relieved of their normal assignments as WSP troopers to enable them to focus on impaired driving enforcement. The detachment teams would patrol from 6 p.m. to 4 a.m. Wednesday through Saturday nights.
