The Traffic Bureau is responsible for all matters involving vehicles on the streets and highways within the city. This includes vehicle crashes and vehicle law enforcement. The bureau consists of one Lieutenant, five officers and 18 school crossing guards.
One officer handles court proceedings and three officers are primarily assigned to residential street enforcement. They work at reducing the speeds of vehicles driving through residential neighborhoods and preventing accidents involving our children.
Two of those officers are also K-9 handlers. One officer is assigned as Weigh Master/Motor Carrier Officer. His primary duty is to enforce laws regulating trucks that use our roads. Areas of concern are overweight vehicles that damage the roads and safety violations that create hazards for others that use the roads.
Several officers in the bureau also are trained in traffic crash investigation. They investigate all serious traffic crashes and follow through with prosecutions.
