Each officer in this unit is highly trained in collision investigation up to and including reconstruction. All collisions involving a fatality or chance of one are thoroughly investigated by the Traffic Division. This Division also spends a significant portion of their time enforcing Texas traffic laws to try to prevent crashes from occurring as well.
The primary responsibility of the street crimes officers is to target specific street-level crimes that affect the quality of life within the community.
