Traffic Complaint

Police Officers on Patrol  

Traffic enforcement is a priority for all officers in the Palo Alto Police Department.  Our community members act as extra sets of eyes and ears for us, though, and we invite you to let us know about traffic problems you may be witnessing in your neighborhood.

Please complete the below form to tell us about what you are seeing.  We will ensure your traffic complaint gets assigned to our officers so that hopefully our presence and enforcement will soon solve the problem.

DO NOT USE THIS FORM if you are reporting a traffic problems that are in-progress, an emergency, a vehicle collision, or any situation that merits an in-person immediate response from a police officer. 

This form is intended for non-emergency traffic complaints only.  Instead of using this form, you can call 9-1-1 or our 24-hour dispatch center at (650) 329-2413.
