This unique collaborative endeavor provides law enforcement officials and agencies with the tools to develop a holistic approach to assist TxDOT with its ongoing efforts to increase public safety by reducing crashes and other social harms throughout the state. IADLEST is proud to have the opportunity to continue working with law enforcement professionals from across Texas.
