Mobile Operations officers focus their traffic enforcement responsibilities on roads and neighborhoods with unique traffic concerns, school zones and any section of town requiring special attention.

The unit provides motorcycle support for large scale incidents, events and civil disturbance situations. Canton METROLEC officers have been mobilized for situations around the state including events at Gillette Stadium, Fenway Park, the Democratic National Convention, and crowd control for post-game Red-Sox and Patriots celebrations in downtown Boston.­
