Lead Exercise 2

Cancer causing radar guns to be banned from East Dakota Highway Patrol.

As of yesterday, reports claim studies are being conducted regarding possible links between the hand-held radar guns guns and cancer after three municipal officers of Central City filed for workmen’s compensation after using the hand-held devices, claiming they caused cancer. The ban will result in the withdrawal of 70 radar guns from service due to the long term exposure to radiation waves from the devices.

Adam Smith, the spokesman of the state policy agency says, “The feeling here is to err on the side of caution until more is known about the issue”. This issue is a ‘first of its kind’ within the department. Smith explains, “the whole situation is under review”.

State troopers will continue to use the radar units that are mounted outside of their patrol cars.
