Enhanced Traffic Safety Program

The primary function of the Stayton Police Department Motor Program is traffic education and enforcement. It is the goal of the Stayton Police Department to reduce the risk of serious injury accidents in Stayton. We also want to make the streets safe for pedestrians to enjoy our beautiful city.  

 

Each Motor Officer must attend an 80 hour advanced police motorcycle training course. Each Officer then participates in monthly training to keep their skills up. Motor Officers participate in community events, provide traffic control, conduct school presentations, assist in funeral processions and conduct focused traffic safety enforcement such as seat belts, cell phones, and crosswalks.

 

Our Motor Officers not only conduct traffic safety enforcement but also take calls for service. There are several benefits of having patrol motorcycles; their ability to get through traffic easier while responding to calls, they make the Officer more accessible and approachable to the public, they are utilized on the parks trail system and they save on fuel and overall cost compared to patrol cars.
