I just wanted to say hello to everyone! I am certified in the use of radar and lidar speed measurement and have some experience in the traffic enforcement field. I have been a city police officer and a deputy sheriff. I even pulled an 18 month tour as a small town chief of police...With all that said...BIG DEAL!!! Now, I work a 9-5 job in an entirely different field and I am loving it...I am on my second V1 and I just ordered Veil for my lights, plates, and chrome. I still own a K band radar gun but had to leave the lidar back in my old line of work. Darn it! I will not pretend to be a "know everthing ex-cop" here but I can probably help a few folks out. There are a few myths on the Internet about LEO's that I can probably expell also. Most cops are just doing their job. The job you and I pay them to do. The best way to keep out of their way is to stay within a reasonable distance of the laws that we pay them to enforce. Don't like the laws? Help change them. Because I have seen the devistating and lifelong hurt that reckless driving often brings, I normally stay within about 5 miles over the posted speed limit and I observe most safely based, common sense laws. With that said, I love to know what's going on around me so I use detection devices as a hobby.
Enough about me...Any former/retired LEO's out there?
