Central Basin Traffic Safety Task Force: The Moses Lake Police Department is the hosting agency for the Central Basin Traffic Safety Task Force, having a coordinator and supervisor assigned to oversee the operation and administrative duties required for the program.The traffic task force was formed in 2000, to augment traffic enforcement efforts throughout Grant and Adams Counties. This is accomplished through enforcement emphasis in those areas deemed problematic. The task force has expanded its role within the communities it serves, by providing education to young drivers. This is facilitated through various partnerships with not only the member agencies, but other entities such as Trauma Nurses Talk Tough, and The Samaritan Hospital Foundation.
