Traffic Safety Unit

Supervisor, Traffic Safety Unit

The mission of the Traffic Division is to ensure safe vehicular and pedestrian movement throughout the City with a primary focus on accident reduction. To achieve this reduction, specially trained patrol officers concentrate on speed reduction, DWI enforcement, and other hazardous violations. The Division implements public education programs and works with other departments and agencies to make traffic movement safer.

The Traffic Safety Unit consists of a sergeant and four officers. Utilizing a marked traffic car and five motorcycles, the unit concentrates its enforcement effort in the top ten accident locations in the city.

STEP Grant:
The Bryan Police Department applied for and received a Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) grant in the amount of $50,000 from the Texas Department of Transportation.  The Selective Traffic Enforcement Program is an enforcement effort targeting three driving behaviors that contribute greatly to the numbers and severity of traffic crashes:

  • Speeding
  • Occupant restraint
  • Driving while intoxicated

The grant pays Officers overtime to specifically target these kinds of violations between October 1, 2012 and September 30, 2013.  This program allows us to put extra officers on the street in an attempt to reduce the number of traffic related accidents and severe injuries sustained during an accident.

In 2016 K-9 Unit supervisor Sgt. Chad Hanks helped supervise the certification of one new K-9 Handler after a 16 week basic K-9 Handlers’ course here in Bryan, Texas. The lessons were physically demanding on the police service dog and his handler. The topics covered in the course were building searches, tracking, evidence recovery, narcotics searches, suspect apprehension, obedience, gunfire discipline, and tactical deployments. Completion of this course helped the new K-9 Handler obtain this internationally recognized police service dog certification. Officer Chase LeBlanc completed his certification in November 2016. Sgt Hanks is currently partnered with K-9 Kohn a Belgium Malinois and Officer LeBlanc is currently partnered with K-9 Blitz a Belgium Malinois.
