Reducing Crashes - Saving Lives
The goal of the traffic division is to generate voluntary compliance of the state's traffic laws. We strive to accomplish this goal by educating the public, by identifying and addressing street engineering issues, and by enforcing the traffic laws of this state. The traffic division is made up of 2 motorcycle officers, 4 Community Service Officers, 1 Training Officer and 1 unit supervisor.
The motorcycle officer and training officer positions are staffed by officers who are selected for a period of 6 years. The Community Service Officers (CSO's) are limited-sworn officers who primarily handle code enforcement, prisoner transport, parking enforcement, traffic control, special projects, and many other tasks as needed. The unit supervisor position is staffed by a Lieutenant.
The traffic division is directly involved with the Safety Belt Diversion Program through the Legacy Trauma Nurses Program, and in the education and installation of vehicle child safety seat devices.
Each of the officers assigned to the traffic unit are members of Clackamas County C.R.A.F.T. (Crime Re-construction And Forensics Team) and assist in the investigation of fatal, serious injury and traffic crime related crashes in all of Clackamas County.
