Traffic Division

The Traffic Division was established in 1982 in response to a crash that involved multiple fatalities.  This incident highlighted the need for a more effective response to dangerous driving behaviors.  Officers assigned to the Traffic Division are assigned to enforce motor vehicle laws with the goal of reducing injuries sustained in motor vehicle crashes.  In addition to traffic law enforcement, officers assigned to this division are responsible for investigating all crashes that occur during their shift, and are trained to a higher level of accident investigation than other officers.
