Our motorcycle officers participate in monthly training exercises to promote rider safety and improve proficiency. Motorcycle officers often participate in a number of dignitary escorts, school demonstrations, and other community events.
The Pembroke Pines “Speed Monitoring Awareness Radar Trailer” (SMART) assists our officers in promoting speed limit compliance within neighborhoods, school zones, construction sites, and on at-risk roadways. SMART is a portable, self-contained speed display unit that can be towed from site to site, as needed. The trailer captures data relative to the number of cars compared to the length of time, the number of cars compared to the average / highest / lowest speed, and captures many more statistics gained from the motoring public.
