PV police installing second phase of speed enforcement

PRESCOTT VALLEY ­ The Prescott Valley Police Department today will carry out the second phase of its fixed photo red light and speed enforcement program at two locations.

The program goes into effect at the intersections of Glassford Hill Road and Long Look Drive, and at Glassford Hill and Spouse Drive, once officials activate fixed red-light cameras and photo speed cameras.

Police selected the intersections after conducting a survey in conjunction with past collision data, according to a press release.

"It's another part of this whole technology upgrade," Cmdr. P.J. Janik said. "These two sites will be our first two fixed sites" in Prescott Valley.

The second phase encompasses both red light and photo speed enforcement technology that will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Both systems can work simultaneously as well as independently of each other.

Once again, motorists face a 30-day warning period, which concludes Jan. 28. The police have issued about 2,000 citations since they implemented photo radar this past month, Janik said.
