Crash Reconstruction

Mapping Station

The Traffic Division currently has three officers who are certified crash re-constructionists. These officers have received over 120 hours of specialized training in order to thoroughly document and investigate fatal and serious injury crash scenes. Traffic officer’s investigations include: interviewing witnesses, photographing and measuring evidence, calculating vehicle speeds using physics and math, and investigating what contributing factors may be attributed to a crash. In some cases, these officers are able to make engineering recommendations in order to make our roadways safer, to prevent serious crashes in the future.
