Crash Reconstruction Unit

The Crash Reconstruction Team (CRT), in addition to normal patrol duties, responds to all life-threatening or fatal vehicle crashes in the city of Wheeling. The Ohio County Sheriff’s Office also requests the Wheeling Police’s CRT to respond with their department to life-threatening crashes that occur all over Ohio County.

The  Wheeling PD CRT Officers are certified traffic crash reconstructionists through the Institute of Police and Technology Management (IPTM). This training involves two separate levels of advanced traffic crash training which takes place over several weeks.
