Investigation for Fatal Accidents and Injuries on the Road
The Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office utilizes a specialized team of trained Investigators to monitor and
enforce the traffic laws within the county. The Traffic Unit is responsible, not only to enforce traffic law,
but to investigate serious injury and fatal accidents that occur. Each Investigator receives training to
become accident reconstruction experts to accurately determine the cause of a vehicle collision. They
provide educational briefings to citizens, schools, and residential homeowners associations. The
equipment used for speed detection are RADAR and Lidar devices, which every member of the Traffic
Unit has received training in. A speed detection trailer is an additional asset that can be utilized in many
citizen complaint areas where speeding is a concern.
The Traffic Unit would like to remind you to, please watch your speed and wear your seatbelt.
