Four Georgia State Patrol vehicles will have new Stalker radar equipment for use in patrolling for drivers speeding on the roads. The new units, approved for purchase by the Baldwin County Commissioners, will cost $2,700 each.

CPL M.M. Raines, GSP assistant post commander, said he didn’t not know exactly when the post would receive the new equipment, but he was confident that the new devices will be updated with new features that their existing equipment does not have.

“It’s a tool that we use and anytime you can upgrade equipment it is a good thing,” Raines said. We’re thankful for Baldwin doing that.”

GSP Post 33 serves Baldwin, Hancock, Jones and Washington counties. The unit has nine officers on patrol with the same number of police vehicles.
