Police TechnologyOur Department is fortunate to have a wide range of the latest technological equipment at our disposal.
All of our patrol cars have in-car video cameras which record both audio and video. The patrol cars are also equipped with mobile data terminals (MDTs), which are in-car computers that allow officers to run checks on driving records and wanted persons directly from the car. Also each patrol car is equipped with bi-directional radars. These radars can clock vehicles from front, rear, opposite or same direction as the parol vehicle.
We recently upgraded our MDT's to color laptop computers. This allows us to transmit photographs and fingerprints to the patrol units out on the road.
Traffic EnforcementTraffic safety is a big part of our job in Otsego. We have purchased a radar speed sign to promote awareness to drivers and their speed. Our officers issued approximately 900 traffic violations and gave out over 900 warnings to motorists during the year.
A very important part of our traffic safety program is safety belt and child restraint enforcement. We have a handy guide (shown below) that outlines the restraint laws that drivers are responsible to comply with that can be accessed by clicking here.
