The first survey will include all the State Law Enforcement Liaisons (LELs) across the country. The second survey will include the LELs’ supervisors from their sponsoring agencies in the 49 States that use LELs, either State Highway Safety Office (SHSO) or other sponsoring agency personnel. Estimated Number of Respondents: There are approximately 240 State LELs and 49 staff from the sponsoring agencies that supervise the LELs—a total of 289 respondents. Estimated Time per Response: There are two survey questionnaires of equal length, one for LELs and one for their supervisors. The average amount of time for each respondent to complete the online information collection is estimated SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00125 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 10547 at 45 minutes. This includes any time needed to retrieve information. Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 217 hours. Frequency of Collection: The information collection will be administered a single time. Abstract: State Law Enforcement Liaisons (LELs) promote NHTSA’s traffic safety programs and initiatives. The way LELs are organized and carry out their mission varies widely across States. NHTSA proposes to collect information from LELs and their State and/or sponsoring agencies to improve NHTSA’s understanding of LEL programs in the United States and to evaluate the programmatic and cost effectiveness of existing LEL approaches. The study will use online website-based surveys designed to identify their program characteristics, costs, and State-recommended program practices. The following data will be collected: Number of LELs, program structure and organization, job description, program objectives, reporting requirements, performance monitoring practices, program costs, communication networks, reported usefulness of specific program practices, site and conference attendance practices, and public outreach activities. Study outcomes will be used to inform funding agencies and LEL programs about LEL best practices and what is required to maintain maximum LEL program effectiveness. The information will support States and other agencies and organizations in their efforts to reduce and prevent injuries among the motoring public using traffic safety programs promoted by the LELs.
