|Subject:||Radar Use by Local Police|
I soon will re-introduce legislation (Former HB1041) proposing to authorize the use of radar as a speed timing device by full-time municipal police officers who are members of a full-service municipal or regional police department and who have successfully completed a training course approved by the Pennsylvania State Police and the Municipal Police Officers' Education and Training Commission.
Upon conviction of a speeding violation, 50 percent of the fine shall be payable to the municipality in which the offense occurred, with $1 payable to the Municipal Law Enforcement Accreditation Fund. This fund, established under this legislation, will be a non-lapsing restricted receipt account within the State Treasury and will fund the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency’s administration of the Municipal Law Enforcement Accreditation grant program.
