DCP to stop city speeders

Posted: Updated:

Albany - Slow down in the city, or even county police officers might bust you. Right now, DCP officers can't use radar within the city limits because of permit restrictions with the Department of Transportation even if they pass a car going 90 miles per hour. That will soon change.

County Commissioners are seeking approval for DCP to use radar on some roads within the city, like Westover, while in route to an area in the unincorporated county. "We don't normally patrol the city," said Commissioner Jack Stone, "but if they happen to be going down the road and somebody is doing 60 mph in a 30 mph speed zone, they need to be able to stop them."

You will see DCP officers running radar in other areas too--including roads in Riverpoint and Stonebridge Subdivisions.
