Traffic Safety Unit

The Traffic Division several Officers whose primary purpose is the enforcement of traffic laws and crash investigations. Many of these officers are certified traffic accident Reconstructionist

The division uses the three E's of any effective traffic safety program:

  • Education
  • Engineering
  • Enforcement

Education is done through instruction of driver's education classes in defensive driving. Classes have been taught to the general public as well by members of the division. Our officers also instruct the basic police recruits at the Vineland Police Academy in motor vehicle law and basic accident investigation.

Engineering consists of continuing planning and strategy meetings with state, county and local government officials, as well as construction officials about ongoing traffic projects. In addition, the division conducts traffic surveys periodically at the request of these agencies.

Enforcement is accomplished by aggressive enforcement of traffic laws, especially DWI (Driving While under the Influence). The Vineland Police Department actively participates in several proactive state grant programs including aggressive driving, "Click It or Ticket", and "Over the Limit, Under Arrest".

We continue to purchase state of the art equipment, including radar units, and in conjunction with the department's Mobile Data Computers, the productivity of our patrol and traffic divisions has greatly increased. We are constantly evaluating new equipment, especially the new LASER radar technology, which is designed to more accurately measure and diagram major accidents.

The Vineland Police Department is a member of the New Jersey State Traffic Officers Association.
