June 2012 saw SML conduct National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recommended curriculum at Fort Bliss in El Paso, TX to some eighteen(18) military police of the 93D Military Police Battalion. Court cases in Texas and nationally were discussed with students receiving a copy of old and new court cases involving officer competency of using both radar and laser speed assessment systems. The first part of June, SML attended the semi-annual meeting of the Electronic Technology Advisory Technical Sub-Committee of the International Association of Chiefs (IACP) held in Tucson, AZ .
Some twenty (20) officers from eight (8) different departments attended a Master Radar Laser Instructor i??Course conducted by SML at the Travis County (Austin, Texas) Sheriffa€™s Academy the second week in April 2012. SML is a paid expert law enforcement consultant for Texas State University in San Marcos, TX. Police and Security News, a national police publication, has contracted with SML to research and publish its findings on new laser guns introduced at the IACP national convention of 2011.
Some twenty (20) officers from eight (8) different departments attended a Master Radar Laser Instructor Course conducted by SML at the Travis County (Austin, Texas) Sheriffa€™s Academy the second week in April 2012. Police and Security News, a national police publication, has contracted with SML to research and publish its findings on new laser guns introduced at the IACP national convention of 2011.A  All laser systems were invited to attend. Special emphasis was placed on field activities of estimating speeds and distances of some i??one hundred (100) vehicles consistent with a Valid Visual Tracking History. Special emphasis was placed on negative court cases involving the dismissal of speeding violations due to the officers not following proper use of the radar or laser systems and improper set up procedures per the Operatora€™s Manual of each gun. This course is commonly called a€?Train The Trainer.a€? The NHTSA compliant curriculum is based on current and past court decisions and state Attorney Generala€™s Opinions. During May 2012, SML conducted compliance statisticsi?? in its study of driver compliance with H.B.
Special emphasis was placed on field activities of estimating speeds and distances of some one hundred (100) vehicles consistent with a Valid Visual Tracking History.A  Hands on experience was demonstrated to all students checking the accuracy of both radar and laser guns. During May 2012, SML conducted compliance statistics in its study of driver compliance with H.B. Laser guns were mounted on tripods to eliminate any possibility of hand shaking making target identification difficult. Students were evaluated on a written post instruction test, field activities, and class participation. The Committee has requested proposals for meeting current performance instruction for officer certification programs and equipment certification and re-certification.


Students were required to estimate speeds and distance of vehicles consistent with a Valid Visual Tracking History and special emphasis was placed on proper set up procedures for both radar and laser speed assessment systems. 1116 effective 1 September 2011 banning the a€?sale, use, operation, installation or attempt to operate a radar interference device. However, we did evaluate a laser jammer as there are no federal restrictions on this product. Manufacturer representatives were present at the field testing to insure their equipment was operated properly by the certified police officers. First, we wanted to see if the claims made by radar detector manufacturers were valid and secondly, we wanted to examine and evaluate new laser guns introduced. All students were provided with copies of the Instruction Manual, Understanding Police Traffic Radar and Laser, Library of Congress #98-87615 a week prior to instruction and a three (3) ring binder containing instructional aids and court decisions. A follow-up meeting is planned concurrent to the IACP National Convention scheduled for late fall of 2012 in San Diego, CA. Students rotated laser gun use during this field exercise to gain knowledge of laser guns they were not using.
In the case of radar guns, officers used two tuning forks for the moving mode and one tuning fork for the stationary mode per NHTSA recommendations. Due to lasera€™s precise and low divergence, it is extremely popular with police agencies facing rush hour traffic. According to the Federal Communications Commission in their Public Notice DA 96-2040, a€?Radar detectors are radio receivers tuned to receive radar signals and are used by motorists to provide a warning of any radar activity in the vicinity. The set up procedures for both radar and laser guns are documented in the Ownera€™s Manual of the particular gun. Participants were instructed to bring with them the current radar or laser systems they presently use along with the Operatora€™s Manual provided when the systems were received by the individual departments.
Many departments in metropolitan areas or replacing moving radar systems with pinpoint laser use. In this regard, the FCC regulations pertaining to receivers do not address the subject of radar detectors. First, we wanted to see if the claims made by radar detector manufacturers were valid and secondly, we i??wanted to examine and evaluate new laser guns introduced. 1116 does allow police officers to operate a laser jammer a€?in the discharge of their official duties.a€? We did this to see if the laser jammer worked.


In the case with laser, a Known Distance must be established and the laser gun pass a Vertical and Horizontal sight alignment test. As required, students had to demonstrate their ability in using a low and high Doppler tuning forks in setting up each moving radar system. Most notably, powering of the laser gun and their diminished size highlight the new laser introductions. 1116 does allow police officers to operate a laser jammer a€?in the discharge of their official duties.a€?A  We did this to see if the laser jammer worked. It is further recommend for both radar and laser guns to conduct a Known Speed test with a speedometer calibrated vehicle. Students were also required to demonstrate the proper set up procedures for laser guns from all manufacturers along with logging results.
Both cities physically have cars parked or moving police vehicles in school zones during active periods.
Participants were instructed to bring with them thei?? current radar or laser systems they presently use along with the Operatora€™s Manual provided when the systems were received by the individual departments. SML provided radar systems from Stalker, Kustom Signals, Inc., MPH Industries and Decatur Electronics for this purpose. This research confirms that without visible enforcement in school zones, bans will not be effective. In February of 1995, the United States Department of Transportation banned the use of radar detectors in commercial vehicle, 18 wheelers, nationally. A TOP GUN Certificate was presented to the top student in the class being Roger Looka of the Texas Department of Public Safety.
According to the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) cell phone use while driving has no become the #3 cause of accidents and fatalities in the country.
