TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Specially trained traffic detectives within the Tucson Police Department are set to receive more instruction.

The Governor's Office of Highway Safety awarded the Tucson Police Department a $5,490 Traffic Accident Investigation grant to send traffic detectives to training.

TPD officials said the Traffic Investigation Unit responds to all fatal collisions and many serious injury collisions reported in Tucson. Traffic detectives on call 24/7 respond to the scene, interview witnesses, collect evidence, and measure and document the collision scene with the GPS, according to a news release.

Officials said the grant will last through September 2014.
