Motor Unit Officers provide Division support in a variety of areas. These highly maneuverable vehicles are indispensable for traffic control. For instance, during NASCAR and other high traffic events, the Motor Unit Officers are able to move even when traffic is at a standstill. They are able to go where patrol vehicles cannot.
Motor Unit Officers conduct traffic safety operations, speed enforcement and provide escorts for visiting dignitaries and funeral processions. These officers also provide support with traffic crash investigations, school crossing assignments, calls for service, parking enforcement, and with community programs and other special community events.
