The new system is “state of the art,” says S/Sgt. Crowther, Queens District Commander. The Falcon HR is a new K-Band radar system design with revolutionary low-power Directional Technology that provides officers with a tactical advantage in school zones and on residential streets.  “Hand-held RADAR allows us to position ourselves where we can’t be seen and the ‘instant on’ features allows us to combat radar detectors that are used by motorist to avoid detection, it’s an excellent tool.”

Stratford RCMP have increased traffic enforcement since the launch of the Town’s Traffic Safety program last July.  “Speeding and distracted driving are a concern to residents, and we’re listening,” says S/Sgt. Crowther.  Plainclothes Officers are being used throughout the town in certain intersections to watch for seatbelts and cell phones and the fine is a hefty one at $325 dollars.

Councillor Steve Ogden who chairs the Town’s Safety Services Committee is concerned about speeding in the Town’s main residential thoroughfares, “the Town of Stratford encourages all residents to get out and be active. We want every adult and child to be safe while playing, walking or riding their bike so slowing motorists is a priority.”
