HERNDON, Va. – June 2, 2021 All Traffic Solutions selected Bellefonte Borough Police Department in Pennsylvania and Midfield Police Department in Alabama to receive Shield 15 radar feedback signs through the company’s ATS Gives Back initiative.
Over the years, All Traffic Solutions found that police departments in smaller communities have a need for All Traffic Solutions signs but lack the necessary funds and do not qualify for grants. The ATS Gives Back goal is to bridge this gap. Each month the All Traffic Solutions team selects two police departments to receive radar feedback signs free of charge. ATS Gives Back recipients also receive a subscription to TraffiCloud®, All Traffic Solutions’ patented traffic device and data management system.
The Borough of Bellefonte is a community of just over 6,200 residents in Centre County, Pennsylvania. Bellefonte has four schools within its jurisdictional boundaries, three of which are located along state highways that have high traffic volume during school hours. Speeding in school zones is a growing concern for Bellefonte Borough Police Department, which comprises 11 full-time sworn officers. The Shield 15 sign from All Traffic Solutions will be used to help calm traffic and collect data to help officers identify speeding hot spots.
“The addition of this [Shield 15] will allow for the municipality to collect vital statistical data allowing for focused enforcement in areas with a high number of speed-related complaints. Bellefonte Borough Police Department is excited that it’s been chosen as an ATS Gives Back Program recipient.” said Officer Shawn Luse.
Midfield, Alabama, is a town of approximately 5,000 residents. Midfield Police Department, comprised of 18 sworn officers, has been experiencing a high volume of speed-related complaints, particularly in school zones. Midfield Police Department plans to use their new Shield 15 sign to slow speeding and collect data to identify other speeding hot spots in the community.
“This Shield radar speed sign will give us the ability to address traffic concerns in specific areas of the city. It also gives us the ability to study traffic trends in these areas in order to increase traffic enforcement in the needed areas.” said Midfield Police Chief Jesse Bell.
