When citizens believe there is a need for concentrated traffic or other enforcement at a particular location or in a particular neighborhood, they should contact the department to discuss this concern with an on-duty officer, the sergeant or chief. Arrangements will be made to address the concern with extra patrols, speed enforcement or other appropriate responses.
A digital display speed detection unit, Speed Board, is available for placement on streets or roadways in the community where speeding is identified as a problem. Drivers are provided with a radar report of their speed through displayed information as a reminder to adhere to posted speed limits. Contact the business office or speak to an officer to report a location where the speed board is needed. A portable hand-held radar unit is also available and can be provided to citizens to allow them to monitor traffic speeds for themselves. Contact the department to arrange to receive this unit.
