Clayton County Sheriff’s Office Purchases Speed Trailer

The Clayton County Sheriff’s Office has purchased a speed trailer.

The trailer was bought with the assistance of a grant from the Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau used from implementing their STEP wave programs throughout our area.

Speed trailers can be used to slow vehicles down in certain areas while keeping manpower free to answer other calls. It lets drivers know what the speed limit is and how fast they are going. It also stores data for the Sheriff’s Office to determine what days and times are most violated so they can have a patrol vehicle there on those days and times in the future to issue tickets.

Most city police departments in Clayton County already have speed trailers.

The Clayton County Sheriff’s Office already has areas that have received speeding complaints that they plan to use the trailer on. If there is an area in Clayton County that you would like a speed trailer at, give the Sheriff’s Office a call.
