The Kennebecasis Regional Police Traffic Service Division is responsible for investigation and analysis of all serious motor vehicle crashes within the Kennebecasis Valley. Some members of the unit are specially trained in collision analysis, collision reconstruction and crash data analysis to name a few, all are experts in their field. The section also investigates hit and run accidents, driving complaints and assists the municipalities on several traffic related issues including Traffic calming measures.
One of their major responsibilities is the enforcement of the Motor Vehicle Act. This is done effectively through regular campaigns and traffic projects as well as daily enforcement. As speeding is a major concern, the members use sophisticated speed measuring devices to assist them. Members drive marked and unmarked police cars as well as a police motorcycle.
