Traffic officers. Traffic Unit officers' primary objective is the reduction of  accidents through vigorous but fair and impartial enforcement of state law and city ordinances. The goals can be accomplished through saturation style patrol, specific problem areas, or complaints against specific vehicle and operators are all effective tools.
