Saint Lucia police need new radar guns, Acting Police Commissioner, Milton Desir has disclosed.
Desir explained that the radar guns are calibrated for a certain period such as one year, after which they must be re-calibrated.
“We are moving into laser guns,” the Acting Police Commissioner told reporters.
He said as a result, the police will be obtaining the new devices to monitor speed on the country’s roads.
Radar speed guns, like other types of radar, consist of a radio transmitter and receiver.
They send out a radio signal in a narrow beam, then receive the same signal back after it bounces off the target object.
