HARLEM, Ga. (WRDW) -- The Georgia Department of Public Safety has renewed the city of Harlem's license to use radars, according to a post on the Harlem Department of Public Safety's Facebook page.
The certification for Harlem's speed detection radars was not renewed on Feb. 7 leaving the city to pay back thousands of dollars in speeding tickets, Police Chief Gary Jones said in December. The 85 traffic citations handed out over a ten month period were technically not official.
Each officer will complete a radar refresher course before using the devices, according to the post.
