Community Traffic Services Unit
 
 
West Traffic Division’s Community Traffic Services Unit (CTSU) acts as liaison to the community to address traffic concerns. Members of the unit investigate all traffic complaints referred by community members or council member's offices. Typical complaints include speeding on a certain area of roadway or people not stopping for a stop sign.

There are various officers on motorcycles and in police cars assigned to each geographical area within West Bureau to investigate the traffic complaints. They attend various community and Community Police Advisory Board (CPAB) meetings and address traffic concerns raised in those meetings.

Another function of the Community Traffic Services Unit is to act as a liaison to all the public and private schools within West Bureau. The School Detail Officer meets with the school principals and staff to assist them with traffic problems that occur around the schools, usually at the start and end of the school day.

The goals of the Community Traffic Services Unit are to educate, enforce, and to address the concerns of the community.

Traffic Safety Unit

The primary function of the Traffic Safety Unit is to educate the public regarding traffic regulations through programs aimed at exposing specific problems. Members of this unit give presentations on such topics as pedestrian and bicycle safety at grammar schools, Sober Graduation at high schools, alcohol awareness at colleges, pedestrian safety at senior citizens centers and other traffic safety programs to various groups. There are two officers assigned to the Traffic Safety Unit.

Traffic Subcommittee

The Traffic Subcommittee meets monthly to deal with community traffic concerns such as road management improvement efforts, traffic calming, etc. A Community-Police Advisory Board Traffic Summit is held annually, and all City Departments are represented at this meeting.
