Commercial Vehicle Enforcement

Mission Statement:
Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Unit will provide quality service to the community through effective enforcement and positive interaction with the transportation community and our citizens.


Commerical Vehicle Enforcement


















Supervised by a sergeant, officers assigned to this enforcement unit are dedicated to reducing commercial vehicle collisions through enforcement of state and federal transportation laws. Officers are trained by the Texas Department of Public Safety and are certified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in North American Roadside Inspection, Hazardous Materials inspection, Cargo Tank Inspections, and Motor Coach (Bus) inspections. Officers assigned to this unit are also tasked with weight enforcement on interstate highways, state highways and city streets.

Officers assist the Traffic Investigations Unit during the investigation of a commercial motor vehicle collision that involves serious bodily injury or death.
The C.V.E. unit is very active in the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance and are members of the DFW Council of Safety Professionals. Several times per month, officers conduct safety inspections at trucking companies' request to ensure that trucks are safe before they are driven. This program is voluntary and is conducted at the company's facilities. Officers also conduct safety education for c ompanies and their drivers regarding load securement, hours of service and numerous other safety regulations. If you are a carrier and are in need of safety guidance and would like to join our Carrier Safety Education Program, please contact us by phone or email to set up an appointment with one of our inspectors.
