The Robbinsdale Police Department places a great deal of emphasis on traffic enforcement in an effort to make our community safer. Without a doubt this topic is a top concern for our residents as we regularly receive complaints from people reporting aggressive or inattentive driving which put other motorists, pedestrians and our children at risk for injury. We believe strong traffic enforcement provides the following benefits to the city:
As important as traffic enforcement is to our community, some members of the public sometimes express concern over our continued efforts when we experience spikes in crime or other quality of life issues. In other words they wonder, understandably, why we aren’t committing all of our resources to a particular problem. The Robbinsdale Police Department is able to multi-task during virtually any crime occurrence within the city and understands that traffic enforcement never becomes any less important to those who are directly affected by it regardless of whatever else may be occurring. That said, although all of our patrol officers are dedicated to traffic enforcement, the department does dedicate one officer solely to this area. This dedicated traffic officer provides us the ability to focus other patrol officers on other concerns when that becomes necessary.
Our dedicated traffic officer participates with other law enforcement agencies in the “Towards Zero Death”, “NightCap” and “Safe and Sober” campaigns, and is also part of the Hennepin County Traffic Enforcement Group.
