The Los Angeles Police department is divided into four geographic areas, South Bureau, West Bureau, Central Bureau, and Valley Bureau. These bureaus are each patrolled by a traffic division. The traffic divisions are responsible for the investigation of traffic collisions and traffic-related crimes. In addition to investigation, each division also educates the community, enforces traffic laws, and does outreach work.
