Traffic & Special Services
Traffic Crash Investigations
Uniformed officers respond to property damage and injury crashes. In most cases, an accident report is filed electronically and a copy may be picked up at the Records Section or Front Desk within three days.
All fatal crashes are investigated by the Fatal Accident Crash Team (FACT). The team is comprised of specially trained crash investigators using the latest technology to determine the cause of a fatal crash. Members of FACT work in conjunction with the District Attorney General’s Office to prosecute cases where death or serious injury occurs involving criminal conduct by the operator of a vehicle.
Tennessee Integrated Traffic Analysis Network (TITAN)
TITAN serves as a platform to submit crash reports electronically to the State and also allows users to query crash data for statistical purposes. Copies of accident reports are available at the Front Desk or Records Section.
Child Passenger Safety
Our Child Passenger Safety (CPS) program continues to be one of our most important community outreach activities.
Our CPS technicians also serve the community by providing child seat checks to families that come to the Police Department to have a child safety seat checked or installed. By providing this service we make a positive impression on these families, as well as help in protecting Murfreesboro’s smallest citizens.
Murfreesboro Police Alcohol Countermeasures Team (MPACT)
The MPACT team focuses on alcohol related crimes such as DUI, Underage Consumption, and Public Intoxication.
All three members of the DUI enforcement unit (MPACT) received the 100 Club Award from the Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) at the annual Tennessee Lifesavers Conference held in Murfreesboro. This award recognizes Tennessee law enforcement officers who have made at least 100 DUI arrests during the year. The Murfreesboro Police Department is consistently represented in this award ceremony each year due to the hard work and commitment of our MPACT officers on DUI enforcement.
Red Light Camera Program
The MPD enforces red light violations at high volume intersections using automated enforcement. The six intersections were automated enforcement occurs are:
The K-9 unit consists of canine teams with handlers. Each handler is issued a specially equipped vehicle to accommodate their canine partner. Each team receives continual specialized training during the year and is certified annually by their national associations. The MPD employs a bloodhound, patrol tracking and apprehension K9s, narcotics detecting K9s, and bomb detecting K9s.
Immediate Response Team & Special Operations Unit
The Immediate Response Team (IRT) consists of members of the Special Operations Unit (SOU) tactical team who have completed Basic SWAT training and have been recommended by their SOU supervisor as performing at an acceptable level of tactical proficiency. IRT response to incidences alleviated the need for a full SOU call-out in many cases. This approach saves personnel costs and results in quick resolution to situations that have the potential to become more serious if not resolved quickly.
