The Livermore Police Department Traffic Unit strives to keep our community's roadways safe for all motorists and pedestrians. In an effort to accomplish this goal, we employ the three "E"s of traffic safety; Education, Engineering and Enforcement. The Traffic Unit has been developed with this objective in mind. Currently the Traffic Unit consists of 1 Lieutenant, 1 Sergeant, 1 Collision Investigator, 3 Motor Officers, 1 Traffic Education Officer, 1 Community Service Specialist who is also assigned to the Abandoned Vehicle Abatement program and 1 Division Clerk.
The Traffic Unit provides daily traffic enforcement to the many miles of roadways in the City of Livermore and is responsible for investigating all serious injury and fatal collisions in the city. As available, the Traffic Unit will investigate all reported collisions that occurred within city limits.
The Traffic Unit presents education to community members through a wide variety of programs. Every other year the unit presents the Every 15 Minutes program to all juniors and seniors at the Livermore high schools. The Traffic Community Service Specialist also deploys radar trailers throughout the city in an effort to educate drivers on the speeds they are traveling in comparison to the posted speed limit.

The recent wildfires in northern and southern California are the latest reminders that disasters and emergencies do happen, sometime when and where you least expect it. Communities have focused on preparedness…like storing water and having a “go bag”; however, resiliency is another important aspect when a disaster strikes. How soon and successfully could your family and/or business “bounce back” after a disaster? In 2018 watch for posts that highlight what the City is already doing and what you, as a partner, can do to revive Livermore’s wonderful quality-of-life following a disaster. In 2018, Resolve to be Resilient!
