Speeding drivers on neighborhood streets is one of the most common complaints received by the Novi Police Department. Neighborhood Speed Watch is a three-part program designed to address the concerns of our community. The program is a partnership between the Novi Police Department and our citizens and is initiated by citizens concerned about speeding vehicles in their neighborhood.
The “Shield 12” speed monitoring devices are what is utilized by the Novi Police Department on busy city streets as well as in subdivisions. The Shield 12 is a self-contained speed display unit, that can either be placed on a permanent speed limit sign or affixed to the back of a Novi Police Patrol unit. These are specifically designed to promote speed awareness. The Shield 12 uses a radar unit to determine the speed of vehicles approaching or driving away from the unit. That speed is displayed on the front of the device and has a strobe feature to catch the attention of oncoming traffic.
