Police S.M.A.R.T. Unit
Police Department orders a Speed Traffic Radar Trailer
To Promote Safe Driving in the community
Hanson Police Department was the recipient of a
Speed Monitoring Awareness Radar Trailer better
known as S.M.A.R.T. This traffic enforcement item
was funded in part by a Grant Award from the Commonwealth’s
Executive Office of Public Safety.
Drivers approaching the S.M.A.R.T unit will see
the posted speed limit as well as their automobile's
speed detected by radar within the unit. The S.M.A.R.T.
unit will also record other important information
as it monitors traffic including the total number
of vehicles and their average speed.
The Department is able to place the S.M.A.R.T unit
at various frequent speeding locations throughout
the Town and previous accident locations. The Department
will also consider location requests from Hanson
residents in an effort to promote safe driving throughout
the neighborhoods and thoroughfares in our Town.
Use of the S.M.A.R.T unit greatly aids in educating
the public, as many drivers are unaware of exactly
how fast they are actually going or are not aware
of the local speed limits. Chief Edward Savage is
optimistic that the use of the S.M.A.R.T unit will
complement ongoing efforts to reduce speeding through
awareness and education. Residents who would like
to make a request that the S.M.A.R.T unit be placed
in their neighborhoods should contact Lieutenant
P. Yakavonis at the Department during regular
business hours, 781-293-4625 ext 245 or send an
email to email@example.com.
The Police department and the community of Hanson envision
a future in which all citizens of the community enjoy an enhanced
quality of life and a reduction of crime, social disorder
and fear of crime. We realize this mission by providing excellence
in policing through diligence, integrity, respect, fairness
