The Selective Enforcement Unit of the Rome Police Department is comprised of specially trained officers who serve the community through traffic education and enforcement efforts, Driving Under the Influence (DUI) suppression, and school security and student awareness programs. These officers are assigned as Motor Units, DUI Task Force, Accident Reconstruction Team, Bicycle Units, and School Resource Officers. These efforts are carried out in conjunction with the Governor's Office of Highway Safety mobilization periods. The unit is also responsible for the organizing, planning, and execution of a large variety of community-oriented events.
The goal of the Selective Enforcement Unit is to induce motorists to drive safely. To achieve this goal, we combine intensive enforcement of a specific traffic safety law, extensive communication, education, and outreach informing the public about the enforcement activity.
