Isn't that one of the departments on the TV show Live PD?
Yes sir.
A lady friend eats that stuff up
I on the other hand have been on both sides of the law so don't like it. There's tons of dummies and plenty of narcotics busts around here to keep the program going for at least a decade.

Bozeman, MT: Sheriff's Department runs new white Ford Tauruses and Explorers with I/O 34.7. Montana Highway Patrol runs black Ford Tauruses and they also love their black unmarked Chargers. Since the Sheriff's department does most of the speed enforcement in my area I actually haven't seen what MHP runs since I haven't been hit by them since running a detector that actually shows frequency.

I have a running notebook of what I see where while driving around the Northeast that I am constantly updating. I haven't really known where to dump it all so it can get added, but here are a few things I've personally encountered.

-Wakefield 35.5 (marked Tauruses and Explorers)
-Reading 34.7 (marked Explorers, marked Crown Vics, and black Tahoes)
-Malden 35.5 (marked Tauruses)
-Burlington 35.5 (marked Explorer)
-Beverly 35.5 (marked Explorer)
-Nahant 33.8 (Marked Explorer)
-Revere 34.7 (marked Explorer)
-Saugus 35.5 (marked Explorer)
-Tyngsborough 35.5 & K Band (K Band from a marked Taurus, 35.5 from marked Explorer)
-Northborough 35.5 (marked Charger)
-Stoughton 33.8 (marked Explorer)

Connecticut:
-Branford 34.7 (marked Explorers)
-Vernon 34.7 (marked Explorer)
-Manchester 34.7 (marked Explorer)
-Rocky Hill 35.5 (marked Taurus)
-Orange 34.7 & K Band (K from a marked Taurus on Boston Post Rd, 34.7 from a marked Explorer)

List updated

I doubt there are many who drive in Ecuador but here are the systems in use. Feel free to add it to the database. Most systems used here are either fixed or portable (set up on the side of the road or mounted in a car).

Safepace 400 (fixed) 24.125
Traffilogix Enforcer (portable), lidar
Multaradar C/CD (portable), radar
Traffistar S590 (fixed), radar
Redspeed Speedcurb (fixed), uses sensors installed in the road to measure speed
Redspeed 2.0 (fixed), radar
ARH cam S-1 (portable, either used in van or side of the road), lidar
EYP SCAP rai plus (mounted in car) 35.5
Kustom Signals Lasercam 4 (handheld)
Tattile SRL Vega Speed (fixed), radar
Gatso T-series (fixed), radar
Imagsa Technologies Atalaya 3D. I don't know much about it but here is a link if anyone is interested. Imagsa - Atalaya Ultra
Stalker Patrol (handheld) 24.15
Autovelox 106 (portable), essentially ENRADD
Sintel Scout Speed (portable, mounted in car), radar although I am unsure if it is K or KA

I've been away from the hobby for some time, can someone please give a quick rundown of CT's latest radar/lidar usage? I know what's going on in my general area, but I'd appreciate a refresher. Thank you all!

This should help you find any specific information on a town-to-town basis! Just select Connecticut in the drop down menu.

Highways are almost exclusively LIDAR. Truspeed I believe. I had a rare 34.7 hit from a state trooper Crown Vic last year, but every single other highway encounter I've had has been LIDAR.

Towns tend to be a different story. I've seen almost always 34.7 in towns and even some sporadic K Band (thanks Orange). However, most of my travels happen around the shoreline. Whereabouts in the state are you traveling?

Thank you for the temporary link, I could not get access to the survey to pick up the information on my own. I spend most of my time along the shoreline from Stamford to New Haven in Laser Fairfield County. I don't remember the last time I saw a State Trooper using radar, and around town I only come across K band falses. I was hoping the consensus for the state was Laser and Ka only, but no such luck I suppose.

I will follow up with my own search, but I believe LI should still be reliable for the State's current LIDAR?

California: LA County Sheriff runs mostly I/O 34.7 and 35.5 in unincorporated areas. I've only seen one instance of C/O. Also, there is plenty of LIDAR use by LA County Sheriff motorcycle units in Calabasas and Santa Clarita.

I have no clue as I am new to all of this. The color was gray, I think black lettering on the side, short and stubby. If this may help on what was used. LOL

I updated it for you to at least mark that LIDAR is in use in Mesa, AZ. Thanks for the info!

Unfortunately, more legit K band spotted in southern Connecticut :( this time in Wallingford. Came across a marked Explorer shooting moving C/O K band. He had what looked like two Raptor RP-1 patch antennas mounted on his drivers side back door. This occurred on the S Turnpike road by the Oakdale Theatre, parallel to the Wilbur Cross Parkway

I'm not questioning your K band encounter as your detector made that apparent, but I wonder if what you saw was actually the antennas themselves.... It's strange that he'd have both his front and rear facing antenna mounted together. You sure it wasn't just inside LED lights? They're getting really popular where they'll put the LED flashers high up in the rear side windows.
