We have mailed out one copy of the master list for radar operators and instructors to every police department in our computer data base. Please review this list for accuracy, and report any changes, if necessary, to our unit in Whippany.
The radar training program, administered by the Police Services Section, is based upon the voluntary compliance of participating police agencies and training requirements established by the Division of Criminal Justice in 1990. The goal of the program is to deliver accurate and comprehensive speed enforcement training for operators and instructors throughout New Jersey based upon case law and the Doppler principle.
To date, there are 11,198 certified operators and instructors in the program. The Police Services Section collects training records indexed by agency and issues certificates to officers. Certification confirms that officers complied with and met the training requirements established by the Division of Criminal Justice. Police Services Section also delivers refresher training annually to radar instructors who seek to maintain their instructor certification.
