The goal of the traffic division is to help reduce the number of collisions citywide through an aggressive enforcement program,
educational efforts and in cooperation with the City of Carlsbad Traffic Engineering Department. Additionally, members provide parking enforcement,
abandoned vehicle abatement and coordination of special events.
Enforcement efforts target those areas of the city with the greatest number of collisions. The city continues to see a direct correlation between the number of enforcement contacts and the number of collisions – the more police presence, the fewer collisions.
