The Traffic Service Division was established in 1976 and currently consists of two full-time patrol deputies. Both deputies are certified by the Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards. Their primary responsibilities are the investigation of traffic accidents, accident reconstruction, accident prevention and the enforcement of Michigan's traffic laws.
The Traffic Division deputies have received extensive training in all aspects of traffic related issues including accident reconstruction, speed determination, evidence gathering and occupant protection. The training is continual and ever-changing with new technologies that are available to the law enforcement community.
The goal of the division is to strive for safer roads within our jurisdiction. This is accomplished through a multi-faceted approach, which includes education, deterrence and enforcement. As a result, serious injury accidents and fatal accidents have declined in recent years.
The Traffic Services are under the command of Captain Carl Albright.
