Traffic Unit

In 2005, the University of Georgia Police Department established the Traffic Unit to focus on roadway safety in the University community. Officers assigned to the Traffic Unit received a great deal of advanced training on topics related to traffic safety and accident investigation, and use a combination of data analysis and thoughtful traffic enforcement strategies to reduce the number of crashes on or near campus. The Traffic Unit also offers educational opportunities for the UGA community, with an emphasis on minimizing traffic and pedestrian accidents. The innovative traffic safety efforts of the Traffic Unit personnel have earned them a number of awards and formal recognition, at the state and national level.
