Radar Trailers

The Turlock Police Department Traffic Safety Unit has two STALKER radar trailers that were provide through a California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) grant. These top-of-the-line units have the ability to display hundreds of messages. They can be used to advise of traffic issues as well as speed monitoring. Often times, motorists don't realize how fast they are traveling. While radar trailers do collect speed data and vehicle count, they do NOT take pictures of motorists. They simply advise motorists of their speed and the speed they should be traveling. Due to natural hazards such as narrow roadways or soft shoulders, the radar trailers cannot be placed everywhere.
