Area Traffic Officer Program

The Irvine Police Department is pleased to announce the creation of three new positions. Recognizing that traffic is a primary concern for many of our residents, we have selected three area traffic officers to address neighborhood traffic complaints, utilizing creative, proactive approaches. Each of our area traffic officers have been assigned to one of our geographic areas. If you are concerned about speeding vehicles in your neighborhood, parking violators, abandoned vehicles, or other any other traffic related issue, please contact your area traffic officer. These officers were selected for their strong community relations and problem solving skills. They will work in partnership with motor officers, traffic collision investigators, patrol officers, parking enforcement officers, as well as partners from other city departments, such as Community Development and Public Works. Their overarching goal will be to develop and implement long-term strategies that aim to permanently address a wide-range of traffic related issues.
