Meet the New Traffic Unit
As the population in the Town of Erie continues to grow, the frequency and severity of traffic collisions have increased. Additionally, over the last 5 years, traffic-related concerns/issues have been the largest consistent request for police service from residents.
The newly formed Traffic Unit, which starts August 1, 2021, will work towards maintaining traffic safety in the Town of Erie through education and a focused goal of reducing the severity and frequency of traffic collisions through town-wide traffic enforcement. Traffic Unit members will proactively enforce traffic violations associated with the causation of traffic collisions, educate the community on traffic safety, investigate traffic collisions, and respond to all traffic-related complaints, concerns, or hazards.
