CITIZENS GET RADAR GUNS IN OREGON

Posted in Pictures, Video, Commercials, Media, Uncategorized by wolferadio11 on March 1, 2012

Eugene, Oregon Police will lend out radar guns to citizens to help police nab speeders, Sgt. Lisa Barrong said earlier this week. Citizens who are entrusted with the devices must complete a department training program led by a traffic enforcement officer, Barrong explained, and when they’re ready to hit the streets, they will work in pairs, using calibrated guns to ensure accuracy of speeds recorded.

A detailed log of activity is then submitted to police, who say they may see a drop in speeding merely due to the program’s preventative nature. “If people see someone standing there pointing a radar gun typically they’ll slow their speed down,” Barrong said.
