Police increasing service levels 

Police will begin responding to all traffic collisions

increase service levelStarting April 1, 2014, the Paso Robles Police Department will increase its service level to the community by responding to all traffic collisions within the City.

Approximately three years ago, the Paso Robles Police Department stopped responding to non-injury traffic collisions due to a reduction in the police force. The reduction in the police force was a direct result of the economic recession where the Department’s sworn staff was reduced by a third. The Ccty has restored police officer positions in the past one-and-a-half years and the police department is now able to provide this much needed service to the community.

In addition to providing better customer service to the community, taking all traffic collision reports will allow the police department to accurately report the number of traffic collisions to the State of California. An accurate accounting of all traffic collisions to the State will allow the department to qualify for Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) grants and will assist the department in determining collision prone areas that need attention.
