NY Police Getting Money for New Speed Radar

ALBANY (AP) -

Police in 235 agencies around the state are getting funds for new radars to catch speeders.

The Cuomo administration on Monday said the state will provide $343,000 to replace old radar units. State criminal justice officials said many older units were too costly to repair or were too big for new police cruisers. Some of the devices being replaced are 20 years old.

The state helps maintain and repair units for local police agencies.
