Welcome to the Tracy Area!
The Tracy Area has the primary responsibility for traffic enforcement and the investigation of traffic collisions on all state routes/interstates and roadways in the unincorporated areas of South San Joaquin County and the Mountain House community. The major interstates are I-205, I-580 and I-5.
The Tracy Area is bordered to the north by the San Joaquin Delta, by Stanislaus County to the east and south, and to the west by Alameda County. Tracy is a gateway for both the Bay Area/Silicon Valley and California’s Central Valley.
Approximately 500,000 vehicles travel Tracy’s freeway system each day. Tracy’s population is approximately 85,000 and the community continues to grow. Tracy’s central location to the Central Valley also makes it attractive to major industry. Industrial entities such as COSTCO cold storage, Piedmont Lumber Company, Northern California Safeway Foods, Amazon.com, and Best Buy have distribution centers in Tracy. Because Tracy is surrounded by farm land, agriculture continues to be an important part of the area. Local farmers grow a variety of fruits and vegetables including tomatoes, hay, almonds, and asparagus. Milk and grapes account for 40 percent of all farm-related revenues. Tracy is also home to Deuel Vocational Institute (DVI), State Prison and houses approximately 2,500 inmates.
The Tracy Area offers the Start Smart safe driving class for young drivers and also participates in the Every 15 Minutes program and National Night Out. We also provide child safety seat installation checks, Vehicle Identification Number (V.I.N.) inspections, and always have someone available to offer advice or answer questions about safe driving.
