Casper Police Dept. Bringing Back Traffic Enforcement Unit
Starting Monday June 4th, Casper police will be on the road more often, checking for speeders.
The Casper Police Department is bringing back the traffic enforcement unit, which has been on hiatus for several years, due to staffing issues.
The unit will start out with three traffic enforcement officers and one sergeant, and plans to double in size in the fall.
Officers will be cracking down on speeding, and distracted and impaired driving on a number of Casper's busiest roads and high collision areas.
Sergeant Pete Abrams says the unit will use such enforcement methods such as stationary radar, motorcycle enforcement, under-cover units, and some non-traditional methods.
Officers will also be checking for seat belt use and child safety restraints.
There have been officers in the past checking for speeders and other traffic violations, but they would eventually get called out for other police non-traffic related calls.
This unit will specifically focus on traffic enforcement.
