The Calgary Police Service’s Residential Traffic Safety Unit (RTSU) was created specifically to address residential traffic issues. It focuses on playground zones, areas with large numbers of pedestrians, and high-risk locations identified through collision data analysis. The RTSU provides public awareness, education, and community engagement. It also works with the city on traffic solutions that include sign changes, crosswalk installations, rectangular rapid flashing beacons, and playground zone extensions.
The RTSU relies on citizen feedback from its Traffic Service Request system (TSR). The TSR helps the Calgary Police Service monitor and track traffic safety issues. You can submit a TSR online on the police service’s Traffic Service Requests page.
