Macedon police roll out community input program to slow down speeders

The Macedon Police Department is using radar to help slow down roadways where speeders have been an issue.

Administrative Sergeant Steve MacNeal, told RochesterFirst.com that a new Radar/Speed Trailer Request Program allows residents to alert police about problem areas.

One of those is Walworth Road in Macedon.

“Really it’s a quality of life issue for a lot of our residents in town,” he said. “Specifically, the home that we’re at today, he calls every couple of weeks because it’s just a chronic problem in this area.”

The program is straight-forward. “Essentially anyone can contact our office,” explained MacNeal. “They can call 9-1-1 and ask for an officer to stop out to their house or they can email us requests to either sit at their home and do manual radar with a patrol car and an officer or they can ask for the speed trailer.”

It’s not 100% effective, but allows law enforcement to keep a pulse on where issues are being experienced.
