The North Las Vegas Police Department Traffic Division is currently staffed by 12 officers, 2 Sergeants and 1 Lieutenant. The primary responsibilities of the officers within the Division are proactive enforcement, enforcing violations of traffic laws that are the usual cause of collisions, and the investigation of most traffic collisions, including hit and run, serious injury and all fatal traffic collisions.

Traffic Officers (commonly referred to as "Motors") are assigned to work frequent collision locations which are identified through accident report statistics. The Motors are also charged with writing citations for other violations that may not necessarily be the cause of the crashes, i.e., Driver license violations, insurance and secondary violations, such as seat belts.

The Traffic Division is also responsible for the Crossing Guard Unit which is currently staffed with 2 coordinators and 109 crossing guards.  The main role of the crossing guard is to ensure the safety of children at designated street crossing locations during assigned times of the day and year.
