The goal of the Traffic Unit is to ensure the safety of the public within our jurisdiction through education, enforcement, and engineering. This is accomplished by maintaining a positive relationship with the community and its members by utilizing the Community Governance policing model.
The Traffic Unit is responsible for the management of all traffic and parking-related matters throughout the City of Tustin. This includes the coordination of all special events sponsored by the City of Tustin, including:
Chili Cook Off
High School Graduations
July 4th Fireworks Show
Tustin Street Fair
Tustin Tiller Days
Community & Regional Programs
The Traffic Unit is involved in a variety of community and regional programs promoting the safety of the public during the course of their daily activities. These programs include:
County-wide “Avoid the 38” campaign
Identification and deterrence of aggressive driving
National “Click it or Ticket” campaign
Seat belt education
Traffic safety programs
We work closely with the Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) through specific grant funding which allows the Unit to conduct Driving Under the Influence (DUI) checkpoints and DUI saturation patrols throughout the year.
