Traffic Section

The Celina Police Department is excited to meet the challenges of keeping the citizens we serve safe.

Established in 2023, the Celina Police Traffic Section helps fulfill that mission by keeping motorists safe through Engineering, Education, and Enforcement. The Traffic Division will use a data-driven approach to crime and traffic safety.


Working closely with city engineers, the Traffic Section will monitor vehicle accidents, trends, and data to focus on the safest, most convenient, and most effective transportation routes for citizens. Collecting accurate data helps us identify problematic areas and locations that create hazardous road conditions, which allows engineers to allocate resources for road improvements and the appropriate designation of traffic control signals and devices.


The Traffic Section is dedicated to educating drivers on traffic-related laws and road hazards to increase traffic safety, improve driving behaviors, and raise awareness.


Utilizing traffic-related data allows officers to focus enforcement on areas with high accident rates or traffic violations.

Celina Police Department Traffic Division Inaugural Car Meet

TxDOT created #EndTheStreakTX in an effort to raise awareness about the long streak of traffic deaths in Texas and how this is an issue that impacts every Texan. The reality is this: Texas has lost at least one person every day on Texas roads since Nov. 7, 2000. We need to end the streak of daily deaths on Texas roads! This goal is big, but it’s possible. But it’s going to take every single driver to do their part behind the wheel.
