Traffic Homicide Unit

The Traffic Homicide Unit, which was created in 1993, reviews every traffic fatality case in Palm Beach County.  This unit prosecutes cases such as Driving Under the Influence (DUI) manslaughter, vehicular homicide, and leaving the scene involving death.

The prosecutors and victim witness coordinators who work in this unit  process their own warrants and information.  The lead Traffic Homicide Unit prosecutor has over 400 hours of traffic crash reconstruction training.

On average, there are 65 traffic fatalities each month in our county.  For those traffic fatalities that are deemed to be crimes, prosecutors will often go to the crime scenes to work with the police agencies to investigate.
