California Highway Patrol - Internet Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System

Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System
The Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS) is a database that serves as a means to collect and process data gathered from a collision scene. The Internet SWITRS application is a tool by which California Highway Patrol (CHP) staff and members of its Allied Agencies throughout California can request various types of statistical reports in an electronic format. Custom reports can be created by the user to capture data relevant to specified criteria such as Jurisdiction, Location, or Annual or Quarterly reports by date.

There are also a variety of standardized reports that meet pre-selected criteria as determined by the CHP. These reports are available as Adobe Acrobat PDFs or as raw data that can be imported into databases.

Data requested for dates seven months up to the current date will be incomplete.

CPRA Advisement
The California Public Records Act (CPRA) (Gov. Code, 6250 et seq.) allows public access to appropriate records and information possessed by State government.

This California Highway Patrol (CHP) site requires manual submission of e-mail addresses and search queries in order to deliver requested SWITRS data. Please note that manually submitted e-mail addresses and search queries become public records. As such, they are subject to inspection and copying by members of the public, unless an exemption in law exists.

Use of this Web site is voluntary.

The CPRA provides alternative ways to obtain SWITRS data that do not require manual submission of an e-mail address or search query. Please refer to CHP's 'Public Records Act Guidelines' at CPRA requests for inspection or copies of records do not require personal identification unless the requestor wishes to receive delivery of copied records.
