Responsibilities

The Traffic (Motor) Unit is responsible for safeguarding motorists in the city through traffic law enforcement, with a special focus on school zones during the school year. This unit also augments special police operations when their highly mobile capabilities are required. Members of this specialized section train rigorously throughout the year to maintain their award-winning riding skills.

The Crash Investigation Unit is professionally trained in the investigation of major crashes and those which require post-crash criminal investigation. This unit also conducts follow-up investigation of hit-and-run cases and is available to the Patrol Section on a 24/7 call-out basis for very serious accidents.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has information on national statistics and vehicle safety ratings.
