The primary goal of the Traffic Enforcement Unit is to ensure a safe environment for the motorists and pedestrians who live and work in our city, as well as our many visitors. TEU officers utilize marked and unmarked cars, as well as motorcycles to patrol the 318 square miles of Kansas City, enforcing laws and regulating the flow of traffic as needed.
TEU officers are also responsible for conducting motorcade responsibilities during VIP visits and providing traffic control at special events such as the Big 12 Basketball Tournament, the American Royal, the annual Kansas City St. Patrick’s Day Parade, as well as NFL and Major League Baseball games.
Whether handling these high-profile assignments or simply assisting a stranded motorist along one of the city’s busy highways, TEU officers always put public safety first. The Traffic Enforcement Unit can be contacted at (816) 482-8180. Requests for extra traffic enforcement at a problem location can be made to the TEU Complaint Desk at (816) 329-0911.
