DCSO now has a Traffic Unit. The unit was started with one budgeted position and grew through the help of grants. The unit specializes in traffic law enforcement and handles some motor vehicle accident reporting. The unit continues to be supplemented by federal grants. Through these grants in association with NHTSA and Target Zero we do some specialized enforcement such as speed, driver checkpoints, and DUI checkpoints. The Traffic Unit also plays a significant role with the schools and businesses in education of driving and road safety. In addition, one of the deputies in the unit is certified in child restraint installation and periodically will perform these duties in different locations as a service to young moms and dads to make sure their little ones are safely secured.
