NB Commercial Enforcement Officers recieve Radar

Postby HwyMartin » Sat Oct 06, 2012 8:00 pm

Hi All,
Heard a couple guys at working talking about this.
NB Commercial Enforcement Officers are now equipped with Radar for speed enforcement. Just wanted to see what everyone thinks and if they'd like to see this in thier province.

Here's a link from a media release from gov't of NB:

The more enforcement the better. I'd love to see this in BC!

I agree with you both, the more enforcement the better. Just as long as they dont get carried away, it says they enforce the speed of commercial vehicles but I can see how some officers may get carried away and start stopping small cars.

Definite thumbs up from me! This should be available to Commercial Enforcement Officers in all provinces.

I had radar when I worked for Saskatchewan, and I know Alberta is putting radar in their vehicles

Thats the problem Whisler... You and I both know it will be a cold day in hell when CMV officers get radar.. Upper management has said (and I was witness to it) that there is already way to much for officers to do relating to CMV's than to get involved with moving violations. Every time a moving violation gets laid there are a million questions as to why... (Although apparently if it is justified good enough its ok..)

Plus, I think the policing community would have something to say about it as well. Seems to be that if they want to get trained to do our job thats ok; but when/if it is the other way around they are up in arms (look at the blue light issue). It is what it is... Police are the top dogs when it comes to traffic/highway safety and they do a great job of moving violation enforcement.

I would love to see it, but I can't see it ever.. EVER happening.

I knew that the traffic sheriffs in Alberta do speed enforcement but I didn't know that Alberta transport officers did it as well.

Warden I know in Ontario MTO only uses red lights, here on the rock we have red and blues because the local police force would complain because they wouldn't know a thing about CVE so they don't want to hurt relations.
As for speed enforcement where I am I would like to see it but like others said its a big no no from management where I am. The less they have to do the better :twisted:

What are CVE officers going to do when they clock a private vehicle doing 180 km/h? If managements answer is turn and look the other way then I don't think they should be doing speed enforcement.

Very true... There is a definite clash between policy, the law and agency mandate. It would be a hard thing to figure out with the system we have now; different agencies enforcing their mandates.

You deal with them the same way one deals with a possible impaired driver in a car. (CVE has policy and it's not what is suggested above)

Actually there has been radar and lasers in some of Alberta's vehicles since 2001. The current radar sets with the target distance readout are interesting.

And how are they handled? Not trying to be a dick, I'm genuinely interested?

If the policy is pull them over and wait for police, that's a terrible policy. I can't see the police attending in a reasonable amount of time for a speeding ticket that another LEO has stopped.
