Traffic Safety Unit

The Traffic Safety Unit (TSU) consists of two teams that provide support to the patrol function. TSU is responsible for selective traffic enforcement activities and programs designed to reduce accident-causing violations, the investigation of school bus stop arm violations, addressing citizens' traffic complaints, and staffing the highway speed enforcement program. Team members are also responsible for the investigation and reconstruction of serious injury and fatal crashes. TSU has two full-time motor units that provide a variety of services including escorts, traffic enforcement and special assignments. The unit supports the Governor's Highway Safety Program by participating in countywide checking stations that are directed at DWI suppression and seatbelt use enforcement. The unit has a traffic safety education program that conducts a variety of programs tailored to the specific audience. Traffic Safety Officers are primarily responsible for the enforcement of motor vehicle laws authorized by city ordinances and North Carolina State Statutes. They are responsible for monitoring traffic conditions on all major arteries and highways within the city limits of Thomasville; control and direction of traffic during special events; enforcement of traffic laws in and around school zones; planned traffic safety events such as Booze It and Lose It, Click It or Ticket It, and Operation Stop-Arm.

Reserve Officers

The Reserve Officers supplement patrol, tactical and investigative functions with trained, volunteer manpower. Reserves represent many civilian occupations. Each Reserve Officer must work a minimum of twelve hours per month in an operational police assignment to maintain membership. They provide valuable assistance at major city events and supplement call-answering officers within the Field Operations Bureau.
