The Traffic Bureau is responsible for investigating accidents, accident reconstruction, enforcing traffic laws, providing escorts, and controlling traffic. The officers assigned to this bureau also conduct follow-up investigations and criminal case filings for offenses such as vehicular manslaughter, DUI, hit-and-run crashes, or any situation involving serious injury or death resulting from a traffic crash. The members of the Traffic Bureau are veteran officers who receive advanced training in accident investigations. The Traffic Bureau maintains 24 hour coverage for traffic related calls.
In addition, some officers receive specialized motorcycle training and must pass an 80-hour motorcycle training course during which they learn to operate a motorcycle, avoid hazards, detect violators, and safely apprehend them. Motorcycles are especially effective due to their mobility in heavy traffic, and they are capable of accelerating quickly, which makes it the ideal tool for apprehending speeding violators.

Traffic Safety Bureau
The Traffic Safety Bureau is primarily responsible for the maintenance and operation of all equipment and devices assigned to the red light camera intersections being monitored. This unit also reviews all citations issued for red light violations and verifies that a violation occurred. All information on fines, disagreements with the violation, or viewing a video of a citation can be located on the notice received as well as a customer service number.
The School Crossing Unit comprises School Crossing Guards who are stationed near Montgomery Public Schools. Crossing guards temporarily manage the flow of traffic at locations where students cross the roadway in large numbers. These professionals assist thousands of small children safely across the streets each school year.
