How does the Police Department address problems of speeding vehicles?
Upon receiving a citizen concern about speeding vehicles, the Police Department first must determine if indeed there is a speeding problem. This is done by conducting discreet speed survey. Officers monitor the traffic at the times specified by the complainant and determine if special speed enforcement is needed.

If too many motorists are traveling over the posted limit, several methods of speed-reduction operations may be utilized. These include: Saturation Patrol and Selective Radar Enforcement. Saturation Patrol: When Officers have un-obligated time they will attempt to regularly patrol the target location area. Selective Enforcement: Selective Enforcement is the distribution of police manpower to a target location. Police Officers are assigned to this location in patrol vehicles and will issue citations to drivers for speeding and other traffic violations.
