Let's face it - With today's tough competition companies need every bullet in their arsenal to gain the upper edge.
Become a Certified Sales Coach and train company owners how to succeed in today's market place. Companies globally are spending millions of dollars a day to try to reach their sales goals and this is your chance to capitalize on these efforts. June is nearly upon us  and with it comes a good number of events that form part of the National Traction Engine Trusts Authorisation scheme. During the event at Fawley Hill on Friday May 20th, Anthony Coulls Chairman of the National Traction Engine Trust presented Sirr William McAlpine with a copy of Volume Six of our Steam Scene book to mark his 80th Birthday.
The totally revised 12th edition of the Traction Engine Register was published in April 2016 and commemorates fifty years since the first edition in 1966. This unique listing of all the known surviving road steam vehicles in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland has been regularly updated since the first edition. The Register, now has 3826 entries, and has been thoroughly revised by over 2000 individual changes resulting from of changes of ownership and additional technical or historical information.
The listings include details of 2851 self moving traction engines, steam road rollers and steam wagons, 687 portable engines, 160 steam fire engines and 125 fairground ride and organ engines. The National Traction Engine Trust has enquired about this situation and we can confirm that all copies are distributed from our printers via Royal Mail at the same time. As a result, although it is appreciated that it is frustrating at times, there is very little we can actually do. To coincide with the event we are also delighted to announce that a number of engines will be visiting during the day.
The National Traction Engine Trust is pleased to announce the creation of a brand new channel on YouTube, that will be developed on a number of levels in the coming years to further enhance the Trusts media profile and create interest in the hobby at large.
It is very much hoped that it will take on a life of it’s own in the same way that the NTET Facebook Page has done and be littered with interesting videos of engines going about their work on and off the road.
Drafted into the Public Relations department to form the core team who will manage the project are Oliver Moore, Daniel March and Andrew Rothe all of whom are keen to add their own stamp of originality to proceedings. Head of Communications, Matt Shipton commented on the formation of the team, “I am extremely excited at the prospect of the YouTube Channel getting a new lease of life. At this early stage quite a bit of background work needs to be done, but as ever we will keep you posted on progress via the official NTET avenues on the website and social media.
The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs is currently running a Historic Vehicle Survey on their website. A number of dates and venues have been set for the National Traction Engine Trust Exhibition Unit to attend during the 2016 season.
With Spring starting to show real signs of sticking around, many people thoughts are turning to the forthcoming event season. We curently have a few spaces left for this year, so if it takes your interest have a quick look at our Driving Course page to find out a little more.
The NTET marquee this year at GDSF will host in part The Steam Plough Club's 50th Anniversary. Some assistance in expenses in bringing the models to GDSF and Exhibitors passes would be made available.
Held over the weekend of May 20th - 22nd, Fawley Hill Steam Weekend is an event that is held in very high esteem within the steam world. However like so many other events up and down the country they are always on the look out for helpers who might be interested in acting as Marshals for the event. As the National Traction Engine Trust continues to forge links with other organisations within the Preservation Scene we are dlighted to be able to offer our supporters an opportunity to get hold of a free DVD from the Canal & River Trust.
This offer is only available for a limited time so order today to enjoy exploring our centuries-old waterways and discovering how the Canal & River Trust are working to maintain the 2,000 miles of historic canals and rivers in their care.
The National Traction Engine Trust is delighted to be taking part in the Practical Classics Restoration Show, held at NEC Birmingham on 5-6 March 2016. Aimed at those interested in vintage vehicle restoration, the show focuses on projects and techniques, with clubs putting on displays of vehicles before, after and during the restoration process. The Trust will be adding something different to the mix, promoting the road steam hobby and giving a glimpse into the restoration processes which go on in our world.
Visitors to the stand will be able to chat to Trust members about the engines, our hobby in general and how the NTET fits into the larger vintage vehicle scene. World Motoring Heritage Year has been declared during 2016 to mark FIVA’s fiftieth anniversary but more importantly to raise awareness of the enormous heritage value that lies in historic vehicles preserved by thousands of enthusiasts around the world.
Drive It Day™- marking World Motoring Heritage Year 2016, will take place on 24 April.
The National Traction Engine Trust is delighted to be able to announce that Jo Hurley has been named as the new General Secretary to the organisation. In welcoming Jo to the General and Executive Councils of the Trust we would also like to thank all those who expressed an interest in the position and of course to Jeffrery Shackell who was the filled the role admirably previously.
We have promised to get it placed online here at the NTET Website, but due to a technical problem we are unable to do so for a couple of days. Due to a family bereavement our Membership Services aficionado Lisa may well be difficult to get hold of in the next week or so. If you have any questions you feel are urgent and can not wait please contact the PR Office, where we will do all we can to assist.
As previously reported, the National Traction Engine Trust Driver Training Course takes place on May 7th & 8th at Astwood Bank in Worcestershire. As part of the training programe the NTET may award a number of Scholarships to the course each year.
The scholarships are open to non-engine owners being members of non-engine owning families, who are members of the NTET. In 2015, the radio station moved back onto the show site into purpose-built studios within the new Control & Operations Centre complex, thus enabling improved communication of show information, and an improved FM signal from a higher aerial mast. GDSF Managing Director, Martin Oliver said “I am delighted that we have been able to once again come to an agreement with Patrick Heeley of Event Radio Associates and the National Traction Engine Trust to enable Steam Fair FM (SFFM) to broadcast at the 2016 GDSF.
Matt Shipton of the NTET said “The National Traction Engine Trust is delighted once again to be able to support Steam Fair FM for the 2016 event.
The next Engine Owners, Drivers and Crew Meeting will be held at the The Village Hall, Kilsby, near Rugby, Warwickshire. All engine owners, crew and other interested parties are invited to attend whether members of the Trust or not. The 2016 National Traction Engine Trust schedule of meetings and conferences has been provisionally set and are listed below for your general information.
The NTET is awarding Scholarships to the NTET Driver Training Course which is held in May each year. The scholarships are open to non-engine owners being members of non-engine owning families, who are members of the NTET or the Steam Apprentice Club. NOTE: The Scholarships only cover the Course Fees, NOT incidental Expenses such as travelling, accommodation and food. Name, age, previous experience with steam engines, how you became interested, in traction engines, and any other information that you consider to be relevant to support your application.
With the decks cleared and festivities now just a few days away, the membership office will be officially closed until the New Year so anything sent between now then may take a few extra days to process. Don't let that put you off though - the National Traction Engine Trust welcomes new members, old members rejoining and everything in-between. Our rally authorisation team are hard at work compiling the 2016 National Traction Engine Trust Rally List which is distributed far and wide at the beginning of every rally season. It is with great sadness that the National Traction Engine Trust has to announce that Hamish 0rr-Ewing died on 17th November 2015 peacefully at home. Hamish was one of the orinators of the steam preservation movement and was highly regarded by many as a true gent.
We are currently contacting various other organisations, clubs and societies and inviting them to join us in promoting what we hope will become a nationwide and annual spectacle.
The matter was discussed at length during the October meeting and again on December 13th  where Mr Allison provided the General Council with full details of the work which he has done on his engine.
The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs has recently announced that next years date for the event is Sunday April 24th (2016). Further details will follow both here on the National Traction Engine Trust Website and that of the FBHVC's own media channels. A National Traction Engine Trust membership would make a fantastic seasonal present for both family and friends.
It's a gift that keeps on giving all year long with all the usual trimmings attached, including our Steaming Magazine and Online Members Area. Final 2nd Class postage in the UK is 19th December, with the rest of the world varying so you'll need to check on the Royal Mail Website.
For all those wishing to join online, please email our Membership Secretary who will include a Christmas card with a message of your choice to include for the person you are buying the membership for. Please note: Any applications received after December 19th will not get processed until after Christmas. The harsh reality of the situation is that school term dates are now a major issue for the GDSF and this year’s show has conclusively proved that the show will be financially unsustainable if we continue to clash on a regular basis with the start of the new school year. For trade stand holders, caterers and fairground operators, the decrease in footfall at the 2015 GDSF meant that, in most cases, customer spend was down and there is no doubt that for 2016 we have to reassure them footfall will return to the healthy levels we had before the beginning of school term time became a serious issue. Whilst our traditional dates do not affect all schools across the country in 2016, there are a significant number of counties which are affected and crucially for the GDSF, the schools in Dorset and in our neighbouring counties of Somerset, Wiltshire and Devon, all go back on the Thursday FOLLOWING the August Bank Holiday next year, a fact which clearly endorses our decision to now bring the show forward by a week back into the school holidays. As regards the matter of the GDSF regularly coinciding with other key events in our own county of Dorset, this has been a growing concern for a number of years. The impact that both these events have on the GDSF may not be entirely evident to those people who don’t live in our area. We do recognise that there are other established STEAM events which take place over the August Bank Holiday weekend and it is certainly not our intention to purposely clash with any of these rallies.


It is fully appreciated that there will inevitably be some exhibitor crossover between the GDSF and other steam rallies traditionally held over the Bank Holiday weekend but what else is the GDSF meant to do if it needs to change its dates in order to be sustainable and the only dates available are the Bank Holiday weekend? This has been a very difficult decision for the GDSF Board of Directors to make but there are times when tough choices have to be made and when things need to be changed and adapted.
I can assure those people who have expressed their frustration at our decision that it has not been taken lightly and we know that unfortunately not everyone will be happy. Dacre Lacy Cup – Given by Alastair Dacre Lacy, an early chairman of the club, a member of the original committee and number one on the roll.
Golden Film Shield – Awarded for outstanding work in the full field of the traction engine movement. Jack Holloway Trophy – Presented to someone who has given considerable service to the Trust. Jack Holloway Portables Fruit Bowl – Awarded as the title suggests Jack Holloway felt the need to recognise this side of rally work and engine owning.
Eric Middleton Trophy – given by enthusiasts on his death who assisted him at his Hartlebury home on his large collection of engines.
With the vast majority of schools across the UK going back immediately after Bank Holiday Monday, we were aware throughout the year that the start of the new school year would affect us in 2015.
The reduced attendance this year is, of course, a major concern and comes on top of 2 very wet shows in 2012 and 2014 in which our financial reserves were weakened. As well as the issue of school term time, the GDSF Directors have been concerned in recent years that the GDSF regularly clashes with other large events taking place in the area on the same dates, these being the Bournemouth International Air Show, the Dorchester Show and from 2015, the Beaulieu International Auto Jumble.
With all the above in mind, particularly the ongoing clash with school term time, the GDSF Board of Directors following their 2015 review are of the firm opinion that in order to safeguard the GDSF’s future financial sustainability, it is imperative that we move our dates back by a week to coincide with the August bank holiday weekend. Therefore, I confirm that our dates for 2016 will change from those currently listed of Wed 31st August - Sun 4th Sept to Thursday 25th Aug – Monday 29th Aug 2016. Many of you will recall that we have previously resisted any change to the dates of the show. We are currently writing to all exhibitors, traders and contractors to inform them of the change of dates for 2016. I hope you will agree that this decision is really the only viable solution to ensure the Great Dorset Steam Fair has future stability and can be enjoyed for many more years to come by everyone who wishes to attend. Finally, we are aware that at the 2015 show the new layout for public car parking and camping meant that the flow of pedestrians around and through our two main showfields was not universally welcomed by exhibitors and traders.
The N in NTET stands for National and so it was fantastic to go to Scotland and be based in Aberdeen as the guests of the Bon Accord Steam Engine Club.
Hospitality flowed, and we are especially grateful to the excellent lunches provided for us at no cost by Mike Dreelan and Alfie Cheyne in particular. The weekend of course was the swansong of AGM organisers Anthony & Wendy Thompson - standing down after this event - who with Michael Anderson of the Bon Accord Club, made it the occasion of a lifetime - and a very hard act to follow indeed. In the recent issue of Steaming, it stated that members would have to pay for the light refreshments that are to be provided on the visit to Mike Dreelans premises on Sunday November 22nd.
The National Traction Engine Trust is sorry for any confusion caused to either guests or hosts and we extend out apologies to Mr Dreelan and his team.
The role, which on occasion can become onerous, does require a great deal of time in sifting through emails and government postings when determining whether or not a particular topic might affect our hobby. During the great ice storm of December 2013, 4-6 December, SML taught at the Fort Worth Police Academy.
SML Contracted To Appear As An Expert Witness-Early December saw SML appear as an expert witness in northern Ohio. SML Attends IACP Convention-Mid-October saw SML attend the IACP convention in Philadelphia, PA. Of specific interest was laser guns that take such pictures and accompanying video that allows for a tracking history. Major Texas City To Use Adopt A School Zone Program-A major Texas city will be taking advantage of i??i??the Adopt A School Zone program. SML Cancels Appearance At Annual New Mexico Chiefs Of Police Convention-SML contacted authorities at the New Mexico Chiefs Of Police Convention scheduled for 10-12 December 2013 telling them that road conditions did not permit SML to travel to the Albuquerque event.
SML Attends IACP Convention-Mid-October saw SML attend the IACP convention in Philadelphia, PA.A  SML attends the annual convention as it is an Associate Member of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. Of specific interest was laser guns that take such pictures and accompanying video that allows for a tracking history.A  This has been done for over a decade with radar guns tied to dash cam video systems. Major Texas City To Use Adopt A School Zone Program-A major Texas city will be taking advantage of the Adopt A School Zone program.
In today's economy more companies than ever are searching for ways to increase their sales. It is an invaluable aid to anyone with an interest in road steam engines providing an accurate and authoritive listing of the known survivors. If members continue to experience problems it would be appreciated if you kept us informed.
We would like to have on static display in the marquee models of ploughing engines and equipment as part of the general display.
It has long been an ambition of FIVA, and its member national federations, to gain recognition for the heritage value of historic vehicles and marking World Motoring Heritage Year through events held around the globe will be a powerful demonstration of the breadth and depth of enthusiasm for our mobile heritage. We politely ask that any correspondence to the Membership Office be limited until Saturday February 6th, where upon it is hoped normal service will be resumed. The ongoing partnership with the show and NTET will ensure that we have access to the very best show and exhibit news, interviews, reviews and all the information about what’s happening. The partnership agreement between the three organisations worked very well in 2015 and I would like to thank Patrick and the NTET for their continued support into this year.
Our involvement in 2015 took a few people by surprise, but it proved an ideal opportunity for the National to get our various messages out to a wider audience. We are delighted to confirm we have a fully restored engine and some component parts of another engine that will generate huge interest at the event.
We will keep you posted on each event on an individual basis as and when further details are available. The Scholarship covers the course fees for one year, NOT incidental expenses such as travelling, accommodation and food.
During said debate, and those previous it has been implied that the General Council and the National Traction Engine Trust as a body have failed to adhere to the members wishes and refuses to remove Mr Allison from his position on the General Council. After discussion it was agreed that he will be granted leave of absence from the General Council, until the next National Traction Engine Trust AGM.
This will explain in detail the changes made and will give the wider membership the whole picture so that they may decide for themselves.
Many of you have kindly acknowledged that there are genuine and serious reasons for the GDSF having to change its dates for 2016 and, on behalf of the GDSF Board of Directors, I appreciate your support. Importantly, exhibitors were also greatly affected this year, this being a key point discussed at our recent GDSF Section Leaders meeting whereby the new dates for 2016 were unanimously supported.
The South West is a key catchment area for us and we simply MUST ensure the dates of the GDSF allow for families to attend without the restriction of school term time.
Clearly it has never been a good situation for us but it is something which until now we have accepted. However, the land we use is only available to us for a short window each year and means that the ONLY possible alternative date for us to hold the GDSF is over the August Bank Holiday weekend.
We do understand that some exhibitors will be faced with a hard choice but we will completely understand those wishing to continue to support their regular Bank Holiday shows.
We have given considerable thought to all the implications and feel we have come to a sensible and the right decision to ensure the viability of the GDSF for generations more to enjoy.
The cup was given for outstanding engine preservation but not necessarily confined to a specific engine. However, we did not envisage the extent to which it did and this has left us with legitimate and serious concerns regarding the viability of continuing to hold the GDSF on the Wednesday to Sunday following the Bank Holiday Monday each year, dates which we have traditionally used for over 30 years.
The return to school after the summer holidays this year has proved to be pivotal for the GDSF and our research into school term dates across the country over the next few years indicates that we are highly likely to clash on a regular basis with the schools going back. Both the Bournemouth Air Show and Dorchester Show take place within a 20 mile radius of the GDSF showground and the Beaulieu Auto Jumble is only 38 miles away. To clarify, this means that the show in 2016 will be held from the Thursday before the August Bank Holiday, up to, and including the August Bank Holiday Monday, still retaining our 5 day status. However, the 2015 show has been a defining year and, without doubt, has shown that we would be foolish and unwise not to act now to resolve the difficulties in clashing with the start of the new school year and the ongoing competition from other regional events. However, I am sure you will appreciate that it has taken time since the 2015 show for the Board of Directors to consider all the necessary implications of a date change and that this is the best and only option for us to take. May I take this opportunity of thanking you all for your past support and I very much hope that we will see you at the show next year.
The welcome from all we met was so warm and genuine, it was a shame to leave and come home.
Thanks again to all who were involved - we will come back to renew friendships before too long I hope. This is not the case and any refreshments provided will be free of charge to Trust Members and their friends.
The case involved the i??Ohio State Police and the court had not given judicial notice for the use of laser guns in that jurisdiction. SML has been asked to bid on a program that involves sponsorship of school zones by private businesses. Students i??were required to i??estimate the speed and distance of fifty estimations each at the local airport with help from the Emporia Police Department. The case involved the Ohio State Police and the court had not given judicial notice for the use of laser guns in that jurisdiction.
It sits on the ETATS committee that in part sets performance specifications for the operation of radar and laser systems. The Kustom Signals, Inc LaserCam IIA® and the Laser Technology Incorporated, LTI, accomplish such tasks.


Students were required to estimate the speed and distance of fifty estimations each at the local airport with help from the Emporia Police Department. Technical details include the registration and engine numbers, names, engine type and present location. Ten extra pages have been required include the new entries and over a thousand informative notes. The FM service, and full programming, will then commence on Monday 22nd, as the show gates open to admit exhibitors, traders and prepaid public campers. Up to the minute traffic news and weather reports will continue to be a priority, and we’ll be welcoming listener dedications, and playing the greatest Vintage Hits all day and night! We are very much looking forward to building on what we achieved last year and engaging further with visitors, exhibitors and casual listeners alike. It should be noted at this point that Mr Allison was elected to the General Council at the 2011 AGM despite a speech opposing him as a candidate.
Virtually all of our Section Leaders confirmed that many exhibitors had experienced difficulties in attending the 2015 GDSF due to the clash with school dates. Being held only 20 miles down the road from the GDSF showground and with over 60,000 people through the gate, its obvious competition is there for all to see. Our Tarrant Hinton showground is a working farm and with over 50% of the acreage we use in arable crops there is no possibility of the GDSF coming any earlier than the Bank Holiday weekend. Any exhibitors who cannot make next year’s GDSF for this reason, we thank you for your past support.
Our usual dates following the Bank Holiday Monday each year that have traditionally served us well are no longer acceptable. Quite simply, Autumn term is starting earlier than ever before with the added difficulty of parents being unable to take their children out of school without the risk of being fined. There is no doubt that we lose exhibitors and visitors to all these events due to the obvious competition that they provide when our dates overlap. The added benefit of coinciding with the August Bank Holiday is that there are many thousands of tourists in the Dorset area during that weekend and we can potentially tap into that huge visitor market, something that we have never been able to do before. We believe that if we do not address the problem now, then we run a high risk of the Great Dorset Steam Fair becoming commercially unsustainable.
We saw superb collections, of engines, cars, commercial vehicles and tractors - plus a 15th century castle and the obligatory distillery, so much that the AGM itself was almost an afterthought.
The final day had to be postponed until 23 December when the attendees gave their ten i??minute presentation to the class. The court recognized SML as an expert witness and gave judicial notice to the use of laser in the jurisdiction. This has been done with Rest Areas being sponsored by forward thinking communities along interstates. The final day had to be postponed until 23 December when the attendees gave their ten minute presentation to the class. Unique to the new LTI TruSpeedA® Sx binocular system is the easy interface with a smart phone that is already equipped to take still and video images.
Virtually all of the new entries are as a result of imports or repatriations of British built engines that had been operated abroad or are imports of American built engines.
The station will broadcast 24 hours a day through to the last show day, and will continue until lunchtime on Tuesday 30thAugust to provide traffic and travel information for those leaving the site. Plans are already well advanced for our Marquee presentation and with a number of other initiatives being talked over behind the scenes, 2016 will be an exciting one for the National Traction Engine Trust and Steam Fair FM, along with the Great Dorset Steam Fair, it is an ideal resource in our various communication channels.
Similarly, the Bournemouth Air Show is a superb event and is regarded as one of the biggest free entry Air Shows in Europe.
Harvest has to be a paramount consideration for both us and the landowners and there is simply no other date option for us to consider.
Passing without incident, it led on to a convivial dinner and an hilarious after dinner speaker who definitely had the Chairman in his sights that evening.
During the trial, SML noticed the Ohio State Police were mounting their radar antennas externally by the light bar. Individual participating schools will construct a budget for signs, radar displays, personnel, and painting of school zone boundaries. Again only 20 miles away from the GDSF it attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors over its 4 day duration, according to official figures from Bournemouth Tourism. Quite simply, we either do something about the school situation now or we do nothing and watch the show collapse in the next year or two. In Canada, this is done country-wide with lime green paint being affixed to curbs that delineate the begin and end points of school zones. A Kustom Pro Laser III was used to determine the speeds and distances of the target vehicles as the department had a model of the ProLaser III. Of specific interest is to ascertain the sales of radar and laser speed enforcement systems. It takes advantage of existing technology to accomplish the task of a€?evidence of speedinga€?.
Moving the GDSF to the Bank Holiday weekend will mean we will no longer have the obstacle of clashing dates with either the Dorchester Show or the Bournemouth Air Show.
Something has had to change and that is to move the show to enable it to fall back within the school summer holidays. A Before and After study will be conducted at a selected elementary school, a middle school, and a high school in the district.
An Emporia Police Department Charger was used in addition to a Lyon County Sheriffa€™s Department Ford Explorer for the field exercise. This year the emphasis was the use of laser guns that take pictures of infractions for court use for a€?evidence of speedinga€?. A Before and After study will be conducted at a selected elementary school, a middle school, and a high school in the district.A  The Before study will look at the speed limit compliance with posted speed limits when the school zone is active. The classwork was consistent with NHTSA recommendations of 24 hours of classroom instruction for Master Radar Laser Instructor Certification. The field activity of estimations of speed and distance is essential in establishing a Valid Visual Tracking History substantiated by a radar or laser gun reading. An After study will look at the same school zones after posting a radar displays, increased signage, or improved painting in the school zone and the percentage of drivers adhering to the speed limit.A  Solicitations will be made to the community to fund those devices or strategies that are effective.
The same applies to the Beaulieu International Auto Jumble and we will not coincide with them next year either. Each successful student was given both wall and billfold certificates entitling them to teach both Master Instructors and Operators of radar and laser based speed enforcement systems. In the classroom setting, the importance of using the correct tuning fork that accompanied the radar gun model was demonstrated. According to USDOTa€™s Traffic Safety Facts, Speeding is the second leading cause of death and injuries on Texas and national highways.
Many departments find such teaching important as they must continually find officers who have attended the NHTSA compliant instruction.
In response to this cancer possibility the Occupational Safety And Health Act (OSHA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) at the urging of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) found that, a€?In sum, the assessment found that even with continuous exposure, no measurements at the aperture of the antennas of all devices tested exceeded the acceptablei?? OSHA levels. Students were told to keep their completed speed and distance form for court use in the future.
In response to this cancer possibility the Occupational Safety And Health Act (OSHA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) at the urging of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) found that, a€?In sum, the assessment found that even with continuous exposure, no measurements at the aperture of the antennas of all devices tested exceeded the acceptable OSHA levels. Further, tests were conducted by mounting radar units in patrol cars to see if microwave energy reflected off the windshield and thereby exposed the occupants of the vehicle.
There were no measurable amounts of microwave energy anywhere in the drivera€™s seat or the front passengera€™s seat. Florida actually tests equipment to a more stringent standard than to the federal standard of DOT HS 809 812(radar) and DOT HS 809 811 (laser).
Most radar antennas, save motorcycle units, are not designed to be externally mounted and must constantly be modified to meet the purpose of accurate readings consistent with the Operatora€™s Manual of the specific radar system. The State of New Mexico issues compliance with their standards and has issued approval to SML curriculum and the approval number of NM12-53C. The Texas Commission of Law Officer Standards and Education, TCLOSE, issues its own approvals and has issued the number of #2054 for the SML course. Part of the instruction is having students estimate the speeds of fifty (50) vehicles and the distances of (50) vehicles.
This is done with various laser guns operated by students and is critical to establish a Valid Visual Tracking History.
Court cases abound demanding the prima facia evidence is the officera€™s estimation speed of a vehicle i.e. Hall the court admonished the officer in making the traffic stop with probable cause based solely on the laser gun readi??ing.
Hall the court admonished the officer in making the traffic stop with probable cause based solely on the laser gun reading. Each officer is billed $350.00 for attending such training and SML regularly conducts such training at different parts of the United States annually.
Students record 100 speeds of vehicles before any treatment and then record 100 after a large radar display is added to the same highway. In many cases, a laser gun tied to a computer is shown to students allowing for immediate results. The most prestigious award is the TOP GUN Award presented to the highest score in a particular class. The TOP GUN Award during the Fort Worth Police Academy teaching was presented to Officer Deena Evans for her fine performance.
