Traffic Information

In keeping in tune with the Georgetown Police Department’s consistent efforts to uphold our mission of serving its citizens through community policing, we dedicate this page to information regarding the traffic enforcement our officers conduct throughout the town. To this end, the Georgetown Police Department and the Georgetown Highway Department provides the following services for the town, in an attempt to promote a safer community:

  • Flashing Pedestrian crossing signs at East Main St. in front of the Building Supply, and on Central St. in front of the Georgetown Post Office
  • Pedestrian crossing signage in the roadway on West Main St., East Main St., Andover St. and, North St.
  • A mobile, solar-powered speed trailer that flashes motorists’ speeds, as well as collects traffic flow data
  • A solar-powered speed sign on Carleton Dr. that displays the speeds of inbound traffic from the Rt 133 overpass
  • Every morning and afternoon during the school year, officers are assigned to help students cross busy roadways, as well as facilitate the flow of traffic during rush hour along Rt 133
  • A streamlined citizen complaint process, through which reports of traffic violations are consolidated by our Traffic Safety Officer and then disseminated to patrol officers, who target locations randomly throughout their shifts

Speed Trailer Data Collection and Sharing

As mentioned above, we have a mobile speed trailer that is moved to different locations around town.

We are able to collect and view the data provided to us by our trailer, and will be sharing that information with you here.

If you believe that the data collected by our speed trailer would benefit your neighborhood, please call us at 978-352-5700 and make a request. If your street is selected, the trailer will be delivered to the area and remain there for approximately 1 week. Afterwards, the data will be published to this webpage, and we will use it to keep our patrol officers informed of areas in town with increasing speed violations.

Please note: the trailer is not deployed during the winter months.
