The CITE (Combined Intensive Traffic Enforcement) team was formed in 2001 and is comprised of law enforcement officers from the Livermore Police Department, Pleasanton Police Department, Dublin Police Department and California Highway Patrol (Dublin Office). Sgt. Hurd, the Traffic Unit Supervisor for the Livermore Police Department manages the team.
This team was formed in order to provide each agency with a larger number of officers to enforce various traffic laws relating to aggressive drivers within their respective cities. The team focuses on speed, tailgating, unsafe lane changes, and other violations that cause traffic collisions. The goal of the team is to reduce traffic collisions caused by aggressive drivers.
Once a month the team is deployed to a “Host City”. Prior to deployment, the “Host City” identifies a particular area needing and or requiring enforcement. Once the area has been identified the team is deployed. The team works “saturation” type enforcement for several hours which ultimately results in several citations being issued to aggressive or unsafe drivers.
It is our goal, through active saturation enforcement, to reduce the number of collisions throughout Livermore, Pleasanton, Dublin, I 580 and the county roadways caused by aggressive and inconsiderate drivers.
On behalf of the team, I would like to assure you that we will continue our efforts to combat those drivers who choose to drive aggressively throughout our communities.
