The DeFuniak Springs Police receives new equipment after attending a Local Area Network (LAN) meeting at the Niceville Police Department on Thursday, March 3rd, 2011.
Local Agencies meets bi-monthly at Local Area Network (LAN) meetings to discuss local traffic safety issues which include implementation of the Florida Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administrations traffic safety initiatives such as “Click it or Ticket” or “Drunk Driving”.
Panhandle Region Law Enforcement Liaison Andrew Johnson was conducting training about the upcoming “Click it or Ticket” and Drunk Driving campaigns for 2011 and covering law enforcement seatbelt usage, and the increasing number of LEO’s killed in crashes. At the end of the meeting different items that pertained to traffic enforcement were raffled off to the attending agencies. The DeFuniak Springs Police was awarded a Pro-Lite+ from Kustom Signals, Inc.
Pro-Lite+ is a binocular style, handheld device that measures both the range and velocity of selected targets by laser. It allows an officer to isolate a single violator from a group of vehicles, regardless of size. The Kustom Signals' Pro-Lite+ provides 1:1 viewing, without magnification, for precise targeting and less eyestrain, and provides quick targeting and viewing capabilities for range applications up to 2,000 feet.
This new equipment will greatly aid the Agency in the future to encourage individuals to drive safely.
