The Santa Rosa County Traffic Unit has been reinstated in 2013. The goal of the Traffic Unit is to address aggressive driving on our major highways, and address traffic related complaints in residential neighborhoods. As the unit grows, additional responsibilities will include DUI and drivers license checkpoints. The traffic unit also works closely with the Florida Highway Patrol and Department of Public Safety. Our Traffic unit is under the supervision of Captain Doug Bringmans.
Currently, the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office utilizes Dodge Chargers with what we call “Ghost Lettering” in the sides of the vehicles. In addition, Sheriff Johnson has authorized our Traffic and K-9 unit utilize Chargers. Our agency utilizes other vehicles as necessary to complete the mission of providing safe roadways for Santa Rosa County.
