Traffic Safety

NSA’s Traffic Safety department has the duty to address ongoing traffic safety issues and facilitate traffic safety program implementation by providing technical assistance, education, resources, and general support to the Office of Sheriff.

Traffic Safety Committee

As part of our department’s work, NSA utilizes a Traffic Safety Committee to distribute and promote materials and to provide recommended procedures for traffic safety implementation among its membership. This Committee’s plan is supported by a monthly e-newsletter, Traffic Stop, and the provision of articles, updates, and other website resources.


NSA Traffic Safety Award

Together with our partners and sponsors, NHTSA, Northwestern University Center for Public Safety, and OnStar, NSA offers the J. Stannard Baker Award.

Applications are due February 9, 2021.
