Objective: Increase funding for police traffic safety enforcement

Columbia Police Department's Traffic Unit was disbanded in 2015 due to a lack of funding.

Enforcement Team is planning for this task.
Target Date: April 2018

1 Reconstitute a Traffic Unit

The Enforcement Team will work to reconstitute a Traffic Unit of at least five officers and one sergeant; scheduled during high crash times. (This initiative is dependent upon the passage of a public safety ballot or some other funding.)

Enforcement Team is planning for this task.
Target Date: April 2018

2 Conduct safety outreach in focus neighborhoods identified in the 2016-2019 Strategic Plan and areas with high crash history

In partnership with the Education Team, the Enforcement Team will work to conduct street-level outreach on safety issues and traffic laws, focused in the Strategic Plan Neighborhoods, and areas with known crash histories. These teams will create outreach plans to implement in Strategic Plan Neighborhoods and other areas as needed. 

Education Team and Enforcement Team are planning for this task.
