It’s official…the Rozzers know their stuff.
Over two days, three Blackall Police officers have been participating in an up-skill program to ensure their certification to operate the new Kustom Pro Laser 4 speed detection system.
Local Police officer Sergeant Ben Holdcroft says the continued roll-out of these devices by the Queensland Police Service reflects the priority the service places on ensuring their officers are equipped with up to date technology to ensure they can do their jobs effectively, efficiently and accurately.
“Some of the benefits of the new speed detection device include improved range, accuracy and resolution., reduced size and weight they are dust and water proof and (have) improved inclement weather operating modes for deployment in fog, rain and dust.”
The Blackall-based officers have been subjected to theoretical and practical training and assessment by Senior Constable Blake Nicholson of the Longreach Road Policing Unit.
Sergeant Holdcroft says all three officers successfully completed their training and will be deploying the new device in and around Blackall.
“With the ongoing efforts of Southern Region Police to reduce road trauma the timing of this training and roll-out of new equipment couldn’t be better.”
“Motorists are encouraged to ensure they monitor their speed and stick within the posted speed limits whenever they drive their vehicles.”
