The Greensboro Police Department (GPD) has a systematic process for receiving traffic concerns, which is the number one issue we hear about at community meetings.
To start the process, complete this short online form.
The form will be automatically sent to our Traffic Section
and an officer will be assigned to research your concern.
The Investigative Process
Soon after the Traffic Section receives the form, an officer will make contact with you. This will let you know that an officer is looking into your concern. The officer may also ask you some questions to better understand the problem.
Next, the officer will assess the problem and determine the best way to solve it. Often, the first step is gathering data to evaluate the extent of the problem. This could include using overt or covert speed measuring devices or having an officer patrol the area to witness driving behavior.
The officer will also look at the area with a critical eye to assess if the roadway design or a traffic engineering issue is impacting safety. If so, the officer will work with the City's Department of Transportation to develop possible solutions.
Once all of that is complete, the officer will again contact you to let you know the results of the investigation. Those findings will also be added to GPD’s database for future reference.
