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.  

Motor Officers participate in community events, provide traffic control, conduct school presentations, assist in funeral processions and conduct focused traffic safety enforcements (Seat Belts, Cell Phones, Crosswalks.)

Our Motor program currently consists of two Officers, Officer Scott Mumey and Officer Brandon RatheLeGurche. 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.

TRAINING:

Each Motor Officer must attend an 80 hour advanced police motorcycle training course. Each Officer then participates in monthly trainings to keep their skills up.

HISTORY:

The Stayton Police Department has had a motors program for quite some time. In the past the department used the old Kawasaki KZ1000P motorcycles and at one point in the mid 2000’s utilized two of these motorcycles for traffic enforcement. The Kawasaki’s became outdated and were parked.  Around 2012, the department, with help from several local businesses (STR, Northwest Preferred Community Credit Union and Sublimity Insurance,) was able to purchase a used 2007 Honda ST1300P which is still in use today. In 2016 the Stayton Police Department purchased a new BMW R1200RT-P.
