Nine New SpeedAlert Radar Devices are unveiled and ready for deployment

Today I, along with fellow representatives of the Louisville Metro Council’s Minority Caucus and the LMPD, participated in an event to demonstrate new technology to help deter speeding and promote safety in our neighborhoods. Earlier this year, the nine Republican Members of the Louisville Metro Council pooled their discretionary funds to purchase nine SpeedAlert web-enabled radar message displays.

We are excited to announce that these new state-of-the-art machines were delivered to to LMPD and are prepared for deployment throughout the 5th, 7th and 8th Police Divisions of Louisville Metro. Each device is able to display and record speed, capture photographs, communicate wirelessly, document traffic data and run using solar power. The devices will be used in areas where speeding has been reported and will provide officers with real time data, enabling them to more effectively manage their valuable resources.

I believe the purchase of these new machines is a great example of how the nine Republican Members of the Louisville Metro Council have successfully worked together by pooling our funding to help address one of our constituents' most frequent concerns -- speeding.

We are excited to help LMPD add this new tool that will help make our streets safer. 

If you have a location within District 7 you believe needs a SpeedAlert radar deployment please contact 574-1107 or email us!
