The PRISM Law Enforcement Training Manual has been prepared to assist States in implementing the PRISM law enforcement requirements.
When a State enters the PRISM program there are changes made in the State's IRP processing and additional tools are provided for law enforcement to use at the roadside. There are changes in forms and additional computer information is available. Moreover, registration actions may be taken against a registrant or motor carrier based on their safety performance in PRISM.
The training package includes a general overview of PRISM concepts in a slide presentation. The slides are annotated for the trainer. In addition, the training manual details the changes to the IRP registration system that are of interest to enforcement as well as descriptions of the Federal enforcement /tracking system for motor carriers.
Further, there is information on the various technologies available to access information at the roadside and on what to do when a vehicle is stopped at the roadside. These sections need to be customized by the State by eliminating any sections for a technology that is not used by the State and to match the laws/authority of the State.
Parts of this manual can be made into a law enforcement brochure for those that do not need all of the information.
