A Message from Calgary Police Service:
This letter is to re-introduce The Residential Traffic Safety Unit (RTSU); a unit created to specifically address residential traffic issues. Our strategy is to utilize citizen feedback to develop our operational response. We focus on playground zones, pedestrian rich areas and other high-risk locations identified through collision data analysis. The RTSU is attached to the Traffic Section of the Calgary Police Service.
We strongly emphasize public awareness and education, facilitating citizen engagement by attending Community Association Board meetings to discuss the Traffic Service Request System (TSR). The TSR is a key tool to help Calgary Police Service monitor and track traffic safety issues. You can submit a TSR by clicking this link: Traffic Service Request
The RTSU also utilizes strong collaborative relationships with City partners on traffic concerns requiring resolutions other than enforcement (sign changes, installation of crosswalks, Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons, extension of playground zones etc.)
We can further assist by liaising with established community partnerships. This includes MLA’s office, City Councilor offices, and Neighborhood Committee Coordinators as we continue to expand events attended by the RTSU.
