The Suffolk Police Department is committed to reducing property damage, injuries, and fatalities as a result of vehicular crashes that occur within the City. To accomplish this goal, the Department conducts checkpoints and saturation patrols and commits officers to speeding complaints throughout the city. The Department has aggressively sought highway safety grants to ensure there are officers focused on traffic enforcement.
The Department has received DUI and Occupant Protection grants to continue that focus and has recently been awarded a highway safety grant for 2 officers to work as a DUI Task Force. Officers work with the Suffolk-Fire Rescue to conduct mock fatality scenes at high schools before the Prom season.
