The Plainville Police Department does not have a designated Traffic Division, rather the task is the responsibility of all officers within our agency.
The goal of the Traffic Officer deployment is to serve the community by enforcing the motor vehicle traffic laws of the Commonwealth as well as reducing the number and severity of accidents in the town. Most of the current enforcement programs are a direct response to community complaints regarding speeding and other violations. The ultimate goal is to foster greater traffic safety for motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians.
Officers in the Traffic Unit have participated in a variety of specialized training in order to do their jobs. Some of the specialized training includes motorcycle operation, radar / lidar operation, accident investigation, car seat installation, and child safety.
