Traffic Enforcement Division Had Successful First Morning

The Nacogdoches Police Department's new traffic enforcement division hit the streets today.   Officers assigned to the new unit worked primarily heavy traffic areas on the upper and lower end of Business 59.

Patrol units are a bit less conspicuous. No bar rack is used for emergency lights. Instead, they're inside.   Officer James Jordan explained,   " Well, you can move around through traffic and you're not as visible from a distance, so it helps you out. You don't have people all of a sudden jamming on their brakes if their speeding and stuff like that. "   The goal is to reduce accidents through high police visibility and increased enforcement.
