Traffic Division

The Crisp County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Division is part of the Special Services Division and is under the direct command of Lieutenant Ben Sumner. The Traffic Division enforces traffic laws, investigates motor vehicle collisions, assists motorists, and educates the public about reducing traffic collisions and injuries. Our deputies have specialized training in DUI enforcement, aggressive driving enforcement and accident reconstruction. The Traffic Division utilizes radar and laser speed detection technology, mobile camera equipment and mobile computers to gather evidence for the prosecution of traffic violations. Their primary goal is to reduce the number and severity of traffic accidents and traffic safety violations with in Crisp County.

Voluntary compliance with traffic laws is encouraged through the use of public education. Unfortunately, experience shows us that traffic law enforcement must also be part of an effective traffic safety program. Crisp County provides traffic deputies as a visible deterrent to potential traffic violators and to observe and cite those endangering themselves, as well as others, by violating traffic laws.
