Seekonk Police Creates Traffic Division


The Seekonk Police Department has created a traffic enforcement division to handle complaints from residents about local roadways.

“I think having a dedicated traffic unit to be out there, to be proactive will put people on notice,” said Police Chief David Enos.

Enos said the increased size of the department allowed for a prioritizing of resources. A traffic division was on the top of the list.

The number of speeding tickets issued as well as the number of crashes has remained steady the past few years, Enos noted.

Certain roadways will be given greater attention based on the number of complaints the department receives.

“If we see there’s a high volume of incidents, requests for particular areas, the traffic officer will focus on that,” Enos added.

Residents can e-mail to share their concerns.
