Crash Investigation

NUCPS Crash Investigation & Reconstruction

The concept of scientific crash investigation has been a part of the Northwestern University Center for Public Safety since its inception in 1936. We literally "wrote the book" on crash investigation and reconstruction, and we continue to be world leaders in providing training in these areas. Our Crash Investigation program is the most comprehensive program of its kind, with courses beginning at basic crash investigation and culminating in various advanced crash reconstruction courses.

NUCPS's textbooks set the standard for crash investigators, attorneys, engineers and insurance adjusters around the world. Initially written by legendary traffic safety researcher and engineer J. Stannard Baker, Traffic Collision Investigation is now its 10th edition. Its companion, Traffic Crash Reconstruction, updated and expanded in 2010, uses real-world crash cases and mathematical formulas to help interpret how a crash occurred.  

NUCPS also offers a variety of traffic templates and traffic crash report forms.
