The Traffic Unit was started in the early 1990s. At that time the unit consisted of one deputy. In October of 2005 the Traffic Unit was expanded to 3 deputies due to grant funding from the Missouri Department of Transportation Division of Highway Safety. Today the traffic unit consists of 3 deputies and a sergeant.
The Traffic Unit is responsible for investigating crashes on county maintained roadways, traffic enforcement, providing educational programs for the public, providing traffic related training to the department on various traffic related topics, and planning and implementation of various special traffic enforcement events.
