Roswell Police Department Traffic Officers provide a full range of traffic related services.

Enforcement of the Motor Vehicle Traffic Code is accomplished using traffic enforcement vehicles.  Fully equipped bicycles are also used during certain times of the year, such as during parades, and local festivities.


Investigation of routine traffic collisions is the responsibility of all officers within the division.


The Roswell Police Traffic Division is also responsible for the safe and effective movement of dignitaries and other special events in the City. In this function they are often called upon to provide such protection and services within the City, as well as assisting other law enforcement agencies from around the area.

A couple of items to keep in mind:

*Remember to yield to the right when Emergency Responders need to pass by on the roadway.  It could be one of your loved ones they are trying to help!

*Per City Code section 12-10-1.2A:  Sun Screening Material on Windshields and Windows; Requirements, Violation, and Penalties; part B 1 states sun screening material “shall be used only along the tip of the windshield, not extending downward beyond the ASI line or more than five inches from the top of the windshield. . .”  Part C1 states each manufacturer shall “certify. . .that a sun screening material used. . .is in compliance with the non-reflectivity and light transmission requirements of this section”. Part H4 states “sun screening material means any film material, substance, device or product that is designed to be used in conjunction with motor vehicle safety glazing materials for reducing the effects of the sun.”  Part I states “Any person who violates any provision of this section is guilty of a petty misdemeanor and upon conviction shall be punished by a fine of not more than seventy-five dollars ($75.00)”.
