Traffic Enforcement & Management (TEAM)
The Department's Traffic Enforcement and Management (TEAM) unit was designed with the community in mind. Over the years, the city has received a growing volume of traffic-related complaints from citizens that cannot be handled by the patrol division without taking officers away from their patrol duties. This created a feeling among the department that we were not fully serving the citizens at our full potential and needed to do more.
TEAM has numerous responsibilities including traffic enforcement, collision investigation, traffic planning, DWI enforcement, special initiatives, Click it or Ticket, aggressive driving, and other programs that may alleviate some of the calls on our patrol division to better serve the citizens and community.
Email Sergeant Ryan Doyle and let us know how we can make a positive difference in your area.
The city's Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) is a targeted police effort to minimize certain violations including speeding, failure to use occupant restraint systems, intersection traffic control violations, driving while intoxicated or under the influence, and enforcement of state laws on texting while driving. Officers may work citywide or in specific areas to enforce these traffic laws.
You can request us to perform a directed patrol that targets a specific traffic issue or problem. The radar trailer and traffic data collection equipment are also available to you.
Please provide as much information about the complaint as possible. There may be a small wait for the radar trailer or traffic data box.
The traffic data collection device records traffic data to help us better deploy resources for traffic problems.
Leander Police Department is now conducting VIN verification inspections as a new service provided for our residents of the City of Leander. VIN verification inspections for a TXDMV form VTR 68A are only able to be completed by certified auto theft investigators.
68A inspections are required on vehicles that are being imported from a foreign county, bonded title vehicles that have not been titled in Texas, and home-built trailers requiring a VIN assignment for titling. If you are told by either the Williamson County Tax Office or TxDMV that you need a 68A form before you can register your vehicle and you are a City of Leander resident, please complete the VIN Verification Request Form and provide the required information. Officer Johns will contact you by email or telephone to schedule an appointment.
Please submit traffic complaints to Tip411.
The easiest way to do this is by using the LPDTIP App, which puts a powerful new crime-fighting tool into the hands of community members. The free app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or from iTunes App Store.
