The Ann Arbor Police Department Traffic Enforcement Section handles all significant traffic activity in the city. Traffic activity includes traffic problems, serious crash investigations and any other traffic incidents.
Lt. Mike Scherba, [email protected], and Sgt. Andy Vainner, [email protected], supervise the unit.
The Ann Arbor Police Department has one sergeant and three officers currently trained as traffic crash reconstructionists. These officers, along with the six crash investigators, are on call to investigate any serious injury or fatal traffic crashes. The team, supervised by Sgt. Vainner, also collaborates with other Washtenaw County police agencies to investigate serious crashes.
There are six traffic officers and one administrative officer assigned to the unit. The traffic officers are primarily assigned to the over 400 traffic complaints that are received each year and enforce traffic laws around the city. The administrative officer assigns the traffic complaints, assists the 15th District Sobriety Court and supervises the school crossing guard program (if you are interested in becoming a school crossing guard contact Kalista Opsahl, AAPD special services, [email protected]).

Having your vehicle towed and impounded is unpleasant, regardless of the reason. Information is available about what to expect if your vehicle has been towed and how to retrieve your vehicle.
