Hi Seal Beach!

I hope you all had a very nice Thanksgiving weekend.  I am thankful to work in such a wonderful community, and that I have this weekly article to help share information with everyone.

Although we didn’t receive any questions this week, I thought it might be a good idea to share a little bit about our recent traffic enforcement efforts.

At least once a week I have a conversation with someone in the community urging them to call us if they ever have any safety concerns.

As I’ve previously written about, there is literally no call too small for us in Seal Beach.

We want to know about your safety or quality of life issues, so that we can make Seal Beach a safer and better place to live and work.

Recently, several community members have brought issues to our attention.

Namely, traffic issues such as speeding vehicles, crosswalk violations, and vehicles failing to stop at stop signs.

So, what happens when we receive these requests for assistance?

Regardless of whether a community member calls dispatch or reports it to the Chief of Police, Captains, Lieutenants, Watch Commander, or even mentions it to an officer in the field, the information gets relayed to our Traffic Bureau Sergeant Jordan Mirakian.

Sergeant Mirakian is in charge of our three motor officers, traffic investigators, and personnel assigned to the multi-agency Serious Traffic Accident Response (STAR) Team.

In the Traffic Bureau office, there is a white board where he lists the complaints, which includes the locations of concern and observed violations.  When our traffic enforcement officers start their daily shifts, they check this list and dedicate some of their time and enforcement efforts in these areas.

If you have a concern about traffic, please let me know.  And if you have questions, please send them to me ataskacop@sealbeachca.gov.

Drive safe Seal Beach!

Thanks!
