LPD Traffic Enforcement
Our traffic unit was established in 2015 thanks to a traffic grant by the SC Department of Public Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The Laurens Police Department was awarded $91,000 to create units whose goal is to reduce highway collisions and fatalities by enforcing all state traffic laws.
The primary purpose of traffic enforcement is to reduce accidents, save lives, and facilitate the safe and efficient movement of vehicular and pedestrian traffic throughout the City. Traffic problems, including congestion, aggressive drivers, and speeding through neighborhoods, consistently ranks among the top 5 police-related concerns of Laurens residents in surveys conducted by the Laurens Police Department.
