The Traffic Safety Unit’s responsibility is to provide traffic safety services within the city of Tracy.
These efforts are accomplished through educating the community on topics related to the safe operation of vehicles on our roadways, the implementation of safety-related technology, and the enforcement of vehicle code laws.
Input from the community regarding traffic concerns helps our officers in solving problems related to the area of traffic safety.
Commonly referred to as “motors,” there are currently five motorcycle officers under the direction of a sergeant and a lieutenant.
Through a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, the Tracy Police Department conducts DUI Checkpoints at various times throughout the year.
The first and primary purpose of the checkpoints is to save lives and keep the community safe from the dangers of drunk driving. The checkpoints serve as an educational tool as well, as it allows the community to see first-hand the efforts we take to keep them safe.
