The Revere Police Traffic enforcement Division is part of the Uniformed Patrol Division. It is comprised of one Sergeant and three Patrol officers, including one Motorcycle Officer and three Accident Investigators. The Traffic Division also oversees the city’s school crossing guards.
The goal of the Traffic Division 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 city. 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 motorist, bicyclist 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, accident reconstruction, commercial vehicle enforcement and car seat installation.
