HERNDON, VA. – DECEMBER 16, 2020 Quarryville Borough Police Department, PA, and Little Silver Police Department, NJ have been selected as recipients of SpeedAlert 18 and Shield 12 radar feedback signs through All Traffic Solutions’ ATS Gives Back initiative.
Over the last 20 years, All Traffic Solutions (ATS) 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.
Quarryville Borough Police Department is made up of eight sworn officers. Quarryville has experienced multiple near-fatal vehicle accidents involving cars, motorcycles, and Amish horse-drawn carriages. Quarryville Borough Police Department plans to use their SpeedAlert 18 to help out-of-state drivers stay alert on a high-traffic, low-speed road.
“Being a small police department with a very limited budget, yet with three major State roads crossing through our little borough, we have a difficult time attempting to control the speeds of many drivers,” said Chief Clark Bearinger of Quarryville Borough Police Department. “Having this radar sign will be a significant advancement in our ability to attempt to slow down traffic in these areas. The fact that the SpeedAlert 18 is so portable will allow us to move it from location to location and will [encourage] those travelers who do care about traffic and pedestrian safety but just lose awareness of their speeds as they enter our Borough to slow down.”
The second November recipient, Little Silver Police Department, created a Traffic Safety Advisory Committee wherein police officers and residents work hand-in-hand to analyze data, problem-solve, deploy resources, and make recommendations to the borough council for all traffic-related concerns. Little Silver Police Department plans to use their All Traffic Solutions Shield 12 radar speed sign in close cooperation with the community Traffic Safety Advisory Committee to help enforce speed limits in school zones, raise speeding awareness, and keep residents safe and informed of driving behaviors within their community.
“Data collection will make our jobs easier as a force multiplier so that we may allocate manpower more effectively,” said Lieutenant Paul Halpin of Little Silver Police Department. “[We] are honored and grateful to have been selected as a recipient of the November 2020 ATS Gives Back Program.”
