Traffic Section

The Traffic Section is comprised of three units; Traffic Enforcement, DUI Enforcement, and Vehicular Crimes.

Traffic Enforcement is comprised of a Motorcycle Unit that conducts enforcement, traffic collision investigations, and DUI Investigations. The mission of this unit is to reduce the collision rates through enforcement and education. These officers are trained in police motorcycle operations, collision investigation and DUI detection. Most of the officers are trained in advanced crash reconstruction. Several of the officers are Drug Recognition Experts and Phlebotomists. These officers are proficient in DUI Investigations and some work with our Vehicular Crimes Unit in criminal collision investigations. In addition to the enforcement mission, the unit conducts traffic education. They teach traffic safety in our high schools, the citizen and youth academies, and instruct civilian motorcyclists during the Civilian Motorcycle Safety classes held throughout the year. The unit attends numerous community events during the year ranging from the public safety open house, school events, HOA events, and other events where they educate and build partnerships throughout the city. The Motor Unit can be seen working the many special events in the City of Chandler during the year.
