See a swarm of motorcycle officers around town? Learn more about our traffic safety efforts

Welcome back to the Mountain View Police Department’s “Silicon Valley Beat” podcast!

Traffic safety in Mountain View is a topic frequently on the minds of residents and police alike. The MVPD traffic unit strives each and every day to reduce the number of traffic incidents throughout our city through education, engagement, working with the traffic engineering department and enforcement. In addition, we appreciate the community feedback we get on our various social media channels for various intersections throughout town.

We encourage the community to let us know about problem areas and/or specific problems by calling the traffic hotline at 650 903-6146 or reaching out to us via social media. After evaluating the issue a traffic officer will be assigned to address the problem.

On Wednesday, Feb. 24, MVPD officers, along with the help of officers from Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety, Los Altos Police Department, Campbell Police Department, Santa Clara Police Department and Milpitas Police Department, conducted traffic enforcement throughout the city.

In this edition of “Silicon Valley Beat,” co-host and the police department’s PIO Katie Nelson interviews MVPD Sgt. Saul Jaeger about the operation and what the future of traffic enforcement looks like for Mountain View. Listen here:



Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, Mountain View is home to world-renowned organizations including Google, LinkedIn, Symantec and WhatsApp. And it just so happens to house us, the Mountain View Police Department, as well!
