One of the top complaints received by SLCPD comes from residents who say people speed through their neighborhoods. SpeedWatchSLC aims to help educate the public about this important public safety issue. Here you’ll find useful information related to speed and other traffic issues. We also want to know what you’d like to see. So please send your emails to, and be sure to include #SpeedWatchSLC in the subject line.

SLCPD Motors

Motors consists of many well-trained motorcycle riders who are responsible for traffic enforcement throughout the City.  The motorcycle squad utilizes BMW and Harley-Davidson motorcycles, which enable the officers to move freely through congested traffic and more effectively accomplish their mission.

The unit deploys City-wide to address major traffic concerns, and it responds to citizen complaints in neighborhoods.  Motors officers educate the public about safe driving while enforcing the laws.
