Blue Line's handheld photo enforcement LIDAR allows officers to witness and capture the violation, allowing the violator to face their "accuser" in court.
There's no cost to the agency for the program. BLS takes care of all cost. Generally there's a revenue share of paid citations between BLS and the agency. The city bears no cost for unpaid citations.
BLS understands that most agencies don't have officers to dedicate to traffic enforcement. That's why BLS offers an overtime reimbursement program, mirroring highway safety grants. This allows the agency to dedicated officers to speed enforcement with no cost to the agency
BLS has had programs in multiple states since 2010. Data from these programs prove that the program reduces the number of speeding vehicles in a jurisdiction, crashes, injuries, and fatalities.
The BLS program has no penalty for canceling a contract prior to the expiration. We believe the program will show positive results and be effective. If the jurisdiction wishes to cancel, we wish to maintain a good relationship through that process.
Have questions about our program? There's none better to ask than those agencies that have worked with us for years. Give us a call. We'll be glad to share.
Since the LIDAR used is approved by the IACP, officers can use it to write Uniform Standard Citations as well as use it for photo enforcement. If an officer captures a speeding vehicle, but decides to make a traffic stop and write a citation, the officer now has video/photographic evidence of the probable cause for the stop, making their case much stronger.
