Starting the week of April 6th, the Everett Police Department will announce specific emphasis locations, on a weekly basis through Twitter, Facebook, the Department webpage and partnering media outlets to let the public know where the Traffic Safety Unit will conduct patrols.
“We have a duty to keep citizens safe and prefer not to surprise them and write tickets.” says Lieutenant Robert Goetz. “By advertising emphasis locations, citizens can modify driving behaviors to decrease collisions and increase public safety.”
The Traffic Safety Unit conducts emphasis patrols each week based on high collision and complaint data. Patrols are designed to increase safety and change driving habits in those areas.
