Traffic Bureau

The Traffic Division’s mission is to enhance safety on our city’s roadways through traffic enforcement, education and a cohesive partnership with our community. Together we will address traffic complaints and reduce the number of traffic collisions resulting in property damage, injuries and death. 

Although all officers working in the patrol division are tasked with traffic enforcement, it is the primary mission of the Traffic Division’s Motorcycle Officers to focus on addressing traffic complaints, enforcing state traffic laws, and investigating traffic collisions within our city.

Major Traffic Collision Investigation Team

Traffic Division Officers assigned to this team are subject to call 24 hours a day and 7 days a week and respond to all major injury and fatal traffic collisions in the City of Murrieta. These officers receive specialized training and use cutting edge technology to investigate, measure, analyze, and collect evidence at these collision scenes. Additionally, these officers complete highly detailed investigative reports and testify as subject matter experts in criminal and civil trials. For questions related to major traffic collisions please call or email the Traffic Sergeant.
