This is a Unit pertaining to the Local Police which tracks serious casualties resulting from traffic accidents. This unit focuses on 3 objectives: to see the development of the seriously injured during 30 days (thus, accounting for possible fatalities), to assess police action after the occurrence of the accident (thus bringing improvements) and to offer several public services to victims and/or their families.
