An overlooked but important function of the Traffic Unit is its ability to uncover other crimes in the course of stopping persons for traffic offenses. Because of this, Traffic officers are often assigned to assist in patrol and enforcement in high crime  areas. Each officer is equipped with a marked squad car, radar, laser, preliminary breath testing device and other equipment specific to their mission.

Only hit and run cases with serious injuries or fatalities are investigated.

Copies of hit and run reports with or without serious injuries or fatalities may be obtained from the MPD Records Unit.
