The Traffic Division is comprised of five deputies consisting of one Captain, one Sergeant, and two specialized traffic investigators. All personnel are certified reconstructionists, with one being ACTAR (Accreditation Commission for Traffic Accident Reconstruction) certified.

Responsibilities of the Traffic Division include routine patrol for deterrence and enforcement of traffic violations, as well as investigation and reconstruction of vehicle crashes (with special emphasis on those which involve serious injury and/or death.) Traffic deputies make presentations to our local schools, various organizations, and the neighborhood community upon request.

Traffic deputies conduct internal training in Basic, Advance, and Reconstruction crash investigation, DUI detection and enforcement, Emergency Vehicle Operation, and computer based traffic crash reporting (Titan). Three deputies are certified police motorcycle instructors and one a certified civilian motorcycle instructor through the Motorcycle Safety Foundation.

Motorcycles are utilized by the Traffic Division in the performance of enforcement, parades, and escorts for VIP’s, visiting Political Dignitaries and funerals. Traffic Division is concerned with child safety and has certified child safety seat technicians (Safe Journey Program) who are available to install and inspect child safety seats.

The goal of the Traffic Division is to insure the safety of the citizens of Hamilton County and to save lives.
