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, when fully staffed, is made up of two motorcycle officers, four Community Service Officers, two School Resource Officers, and is supervised by a Lieutenant.
The motorcycle officer and school resource officer positions are staffed by officers who are selected for a period of 6 years. The Community Service Officers (CSOs) are sworn officers with limited commission who primarily handle code enforcement, prisoner transport, parking enforcement, traffic control, special projects, special events and many other tasks as needed.
The Traffic Lieutenant also serves as the Police Department liaison to the Transportation Advisory Board.
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 as well as all homicides in Clackamas County.
If a traffic related incident or issue requires police assistance, please contact our non-emergency line at (503) 635-0238. If it is an emergency, please call 911.
