§634.27   Speed-measuring devices.

Speed-measuring devices will be used in traffic control studies and enforcement programs. Signs may be posted to indicate speed-measuring devices are being used.

(a) Equipment purchases. Installations will ensure operators attend an appropriate training program for the equipment in use.

(b) Training and certification standards. (1) The commander of each installation using traffic radar will ensure that personnel selected as operators of such devices meet training and certification requirements prescribed by the State (or SOFA) in which the installation is located. Specific information on course dates, costs, and prerequisites for attending may be obtained by contacting the State agency responsible for police traffic radar training.

(2) Installation commanders located in States or overseas areas where no formal training program exists, or where the military personnel are unable or ineligible to participate in police traffic radar training programs, may implement their own training program or use a selected civilian institution or manufacturer's course.

(3) The objective of the civilian or manufacturer-sponsored course is to improve the effectiveness of speed enforcement through the proper and efficient use of speed-measurement radar. On successful completion, the course graduate must be able to—

(i) Describe the association between excessive speed and accidents, deaths, and injuries, and describe the traffic safety benefits of effective speed control.

(ii) Describe the basic principles of radar speed measurement.

(iii) Identify and describe the Service's policy and procedures affecting radar speed measurement and speed enforcement.

(iv) Identify the specific radar instrument used and describe the instrument's major components and functions.

(v) Demonstrate basic skills in checking calibration and operating the specific radar instrument(s).

(vi) Demonstrate basic skills in preparing and presenting records and courtroom testimony relating to radar speed measurement and enforcement.

(c) Recertification. Recertification of operators will occur every 3 years, or as prescribed by State law.
