TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT UNIT
CAPTAIN CHRIS WINDLEY, COMMANDER
770-477-3618

 

Members of the Traffic Enforcement Unit are responsible for a myriad of duties above and beyond solely issuing traffic citations. Their goal is to promote the safe and expeditious flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic through effective and efficient traffic law enforcement and to deliver police traffic-related services in a manner designed to reduce traffic collisions and resultant fatalities and injuries.

The unit uses a two-point approach of education and enforcement and has specialized teams/functions within the unit. Teams are deployed based on statistical crash data. The teams/functions are:

Accident Investigation (AI): Officers investigate calls for service that are traffic related and are highly trained in accident investigation.

Specialized Traffic Accident Reconstruction (STAR): The objective of the STAR Team is to provide Clayton County Police Department with the means to conduct in-depth investigations and analyses of major traffic collisions within the county. Investigations include the reconstruction of a collision and a study of the factors that may have contributed to the collision. The factors include environmental, human and mechanical and are associated with the three phases of a collision, which are pre-crash, at-crash and post-crash. The ultimate objective of the program is the utilization of these identified causation factors to prevent collisions of a similar nature from recurring.

Motor Unit: These officers are highly trained in motorcycle operations. Officers conduct traffic enforcement on Harley-Davidson Road King police motorcycles and are also used for Special Events, Parades and Escorts.




Hit and Run: Officers investigate all hit and run violations. These officers are highly trained in investigative techniques, interviews and accident investigation.

Red Light Camera / School Crossing Arm Program: Through a partnership with American Traffic Solutions (ATS), traffic officers review and issue red light citations as well as school bus crossing arm violations that are captured on video/camera throughout Clayton County.
