New Radar Signs


The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office has purchased two On Site 300 radar signs manufactured by Decatur Electronics. The On Site 300 is the finest radar sign on the market today. They have been purchased because traffic safety and efficient traffic management in our community is a high priority. This is an affordable, reliable speed enforcement tool for monitoring and enforcing traffic 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is designed for easy positioning in areas where speeding is a concern or where complaints of speeding has been reported by a particular community or neighborhood.

This traffic device has the capability to provide investigative information to assist traffic investigators in determining if a particular area has a problem. If the traffic device shows a problem, it will give the traffic investigator the ability to determine a time frame when more traffic enforcement is needed. So in effect instead of tying up manpower for hours or days in an area where a problem has been reported, the On Site 300 will be set up. This will allow the traffic investigators to allocate manpower that is needed in other areas of Hamilton County.

Our county is growing with more people choosing to live here for the obvious reasons. This growth also comes with a higher influx of traffic related problems with more vehicles traveling on the highways and roads of Hamilton County.

The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office has always been proactive in ways to enforce the traffic laws and to make Hamilton County a safer place to live and work.
