PRESCOTT VALLEY - The Police Department now has a new and more flexible tool to detect speeding motorists: the Redflex speed mobile tripod system.

The arrival of the small, wireless digital camera system marks the first usage of such technology in Arizona and possibly nationwide, said Michael Ferraresi, associate marketing manager for Redflex Traffic Systems Inc. in Scottsdale. Redflex contracts with the Police Department to provide photo enforcement in Prescott Valley.

Redflex began deploying the tripod Feb. 29, and demonstrated its use Tuesday at a press conference in the Prescott Valley Police Department's parking lot.
