The primary responsibilities of the Traffic Division are to provide our citizens, whether walking or driving, a safe environment.  This is accomplished through education, engineering and enforcement.  In order to obtain these goals we strive to meet the following objectives:

  • Providing speakers at school and community events, addressing community concerns and safety issues while providing available educational literature. 
  • Reduce the number of fatalities and serious injury crashes caused by hazardous moving violations
  • Concentrate on school zone enforcement.
  • Conduct proactive radar enforcement
  • Monitor those areas where crashes frequently occur and coordinate with certified engineers in seeking solutions to eliminate them.
  • Address citizen complaints concerning traffic laws, ordinances and handicap parking regulations.
