Traffic Safety Section

The Traffic Safety Section is comprised of one Lieutenant, one Sergeant and six Traffic Officers (including three motor officers). The Traffic Safety Section is assigned to the Special Operations Division, which falls under the Support Services Bureau and its Commander. The officers’ schedule varies ensuring peak traffic hours are covered when traffic crashes are most likely to occur. Their schedule allows them to help cover the traffic-related calls for service, citizen traffic complaint areas, identified high crash locations, problem-oriented policing project (POP) locations, respond and investigate traffic collisions and assist with calls for service. The Traffic Safety Officers rotate working Friday and Saturday nights to allow them to be available during rush hour traffic to investigate and enforce Driving While Impaired and other alcohol-related violations.
