Traffic and Pedestrian Safety Unit

If you have a Traffic or Parking concern please contact the Ramsey County Emergency Communications Center at 291-1111 or dial 911.  This ensures all concerns are tracked and dispatched as quickly as possible. 



The Traffic & Accident Investigation Unit is responsible for investigations of the 11,000+ vehicle crashes that occur in Saint Paul every year which cause in excess of $98 million dollars of damages. The majority of their work is dedicated to fatal, serious injury and Hit & Run accidents, as well as gross misdemeanor/felony level DWI and fleeing police offenses.

Our investigators specialize in scene processing, accident reconstruction and forensic mapping for court presentations. They serve as subject matter experts and have hosted national seminars in the past. We manage several specialized traffic enforcement programs such as Operation NightCAP, Safe & Sober, and Heavy Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic to improve public safety on our streets.

Investigators can be reached Monday through Friday 7-4 pm at 651-266-5722 for more information concerning a case.  If you need a copy of a police report please contact our Records Unit at 651-266-5700.
