Traffic Division

  "Making the streets of West Haven safer through Education, Enforcement, and Engineering"  

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. 

The Traffic Division is currently supervised by Sgt. William Cole (not pictured). 

Master Patrol Officer Vinny Costanzo, Officer Jeffrey Carleton, Officer Charles Young, and Officer Tony Dias are assigned to this unit as traffic and motorcycle officers.
