For Immediate Release
DUI Data Collection Effort Earns Employee Special Honor
Officers of the Month
Civilians of the Month
September 29, 2005 - Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam and Police Chief Sterling Owen today named Becky Brack the August Civilian Employee of the Month for the Knoxville Police Department. Brack is assigned to the Crime Analysis Unit and has been with the department since February 1998.

Chief Owen said Brack was tasked with the responsibility of tracking, analyzing, and reporting DUI data for the department. At the time of receiving this assignment there was no single location that contained complete DUI data. To accomplish this task, Brack proceeded to create a complete DUI database.

Mayor Haslam, Becky Brack, Chief OwenPrior to building the database, Brack audited the entire DUI process to learn how DUI data flowed throughout the department. Brack then reported back on the problems associated with the current information flow and suggested several fixes for the data. Since then, Brack has instituted several process improvements and continues to meet with the stakeholders to improve data availability and quality.

Chief Owen said, "Prior to Becky taking on the responsibility to track DUI data, the Crime Analysis Unit could not report the data in a timely manner due to the information being stored in three different locations. Now, DUI data is as complete as it has ever been. The creation of the new database is due to the tenacity of Ms. Brack."

Mayor Haslam said, "Having data readily available is crucial to the operation of any office. Becky has given an extraordinary effort in managing this project and is commended on her efforts."

Brack will receive a signed certificate from the Mayor and the Chief along with a free dinner from the Bayou Bay Seafood House.
