New Matrix Display Makes Its Debut
The West Bloomfield Police Department in Michigan was the first department to receive one of Decaturâ€™s new OS300MX trailers. This trailer incorporates Decaturâ€™s new Matrix Display which gives departments the ability to not only display traffic speed information but to also do messaging and graphics. With this new display departments can program the display to help oncoming vehicles understand not only the speed zone requirements but to also give warning messages like â€œslow downâ€ or â€œWork Zoneâ€. All of this without the need of a separate display. In addition the trailer can be used in pedestrian locations and can display graphics like the universal pedestrian crosswalk symbol. West Bloomfield also purchased 14 of Decaturâ€™s Genesis II Select radar units to help with their in-car enforcement needs.
