The Traffic Division of the West Haven Police Department investigates all major accidents involving serious injury or property damage, or a fatality. Serious accidents have been steadily declining in recent years as a result of our efforts.
The division also assists each year with Mother’s Against Drunk Driving’s (MADD) mock accident re-creation at the city’s high schools. In conjunction with MADD, a walk-a-thon is held each year along the West Haven bike path. To date, over $25,000 has been raised during this event with all proceeds going to MADD.
The duties of this division include: investigation of all major accidents, approving city road curb cuts, vehicle maintenance, police radio maintenance, traffic control signage and lighting, abandoned vehicle enforcement, funeral escorts, parking ticket administration, and the assignments of the 36 school crossing guards for the city’s school system.
The Traffic Division is also in charge of vehicle maintenance for the police fleet.
