S.M.A.R.T. Traffic Radar Trailer

If you are a Plymouth Township resident, you have probably seen the interesting device that the police department uses to assist in combating speeding vehicles and to remind daydreaming drivers to watch their speed.

The S.M.A.R.T. (Speed Monitoring Awareness Radar Trailer) can be used in neighborhoods, school zones, constriction sites, dangerous areas, or any other appropriate location to help promote compliance with the speed limit. The S.M.A.R.T. trailer is a portable, self-contained speed display unit that is towed to the desired location. It is left on the roadway to displays speeds of oncoming vehicles on a highly visible (light emitted diode) display. A speed limit sign mounted on the unit reminds drivers what the actual speed limit is on the road that they are on. The unit also has the capability to record the speed data.

If you live in Plymouth Township and feel that you have a problem with speeding vehicles in your neighborhood , you are encouraged to contact the Plymouth Township Police Departments Sgt. Rapson and request the S.M.A.R.T. trailer be scheduled in you area.

Internet Safety

As we all know, the challenges wee face today are very different from those we faced a decade ago. In ten years, those challenges will be different still. Today, the Internet is part of everybody’s vocabulary. It has become an invaluable resource on which all of us relay to educate, entertain, conduct business, and more. But with the convenience of the Internet, there are new dangers. One of those dangers is the pervasiveness of sexual predators that would use the Internet to prey on our kids. That’s why the Plymouth Township Police Department and Security Software Systems would like to help educate parents on how to protect their kids from this threat.

Goals:
1. To inform parents and guardians of the hidden dangers of the Internet.
2. To assist parents and guardians in monitoring the Internet activities of
    their children.
3. To instruct parents and guardians the tools they need to make the
    Internet safe for their kids.

Escape School

Robert Stuber wrote “Missing! Stranger Abduction,” and from that, he created the Escape School program. This program offers smart strategies to keep your child safe and to help parents teach their children to prevent and evade a dangerous situation. Escape school is a wonderful way to teach children how to recognize potentially dangerous people and situations and how to escape when they find themselves in places they should not be.

The Plymouth Township Police Department has received training in this program so that a Police Officer can provide parents with concrete, hands-on advice on how children of all ages, from youngsters to teenagers, can get themselves out of dangerous situations.
