Officer Erika Bowden

The Traffic Section of the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department strives to make our streets the safest streets in the country for traveling and local motorists. One way we are able to improve the safety of our roadways is through education and information sharing. If you have a topic you need information on, chances are someone else does too. Feel free to e-mail Erika.Bowden@Nashville.gov with your traffic related questions.

The Traffic Section consists of the following units:

Aggressive Driving Unit
Child Passenger Seat Specialists
Crash Investigations Unit
DUI Unit
Hit and Run Unit

Teen Driver Awareness Program

The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department began a free teenage driver awareness program during 2011. The program focuses on impaired driving, distracted driving, and general traffic safety. The 4 hour class is held on select Saturdays throughout the year. If you would like your teen to attend please email your teens name, date of birth, address, parent name/phone number, and school they attend to Erika.Bowden@nashville.gov and we will notify you of the next available class.
