The Bedford Police Department realizes that traffic and pedestrian safety is our community's number one concern in our day-to-day operations and we continue to see the need for the police department to focus on making improvements in the future. We currently have one Traffic Enforcement Officer who is dedicated to traffic-related issues. The Traffic Enforcement Unit is trained in Occupant Protection, Child Passenger Safety, Crash Reconstruction and mapping as well as various other enforcement areas.
The Traffic Enforcement Officer coordinates the department's efforts toward addressing the traffic issues and concerns of the Town. Traffic is an ongoing problem in many communities, but it is especially an issue for the residents of Bedford. To enhance the Traffic Enforcement Officer's effectiveness, the department will continue to seek out specialized training opportunities and enroll our officers in appropriate traffic-related associations. Through these efforts, we hope that the Traffic Enforcement Officer will improve the expertise in dealing with traffic issues.
