Tucson radar van back on the street next weekby B. William Poole on Apr. 25, 2009, under Local, Special
The Tucson police photo radar van, its use suspended this week after a unit operator was killed in Phoenix, will be back in service next week, the Tucson Police Department announced Friday.
American Traffic Solutions pulled its Tucson van from operation after the Phoenix shooting to implement security measures. The new security – which police declined to identify – is in place and van patrols will resume Monday, a TPD news release read.
Thomas Patrick Destories, 68, faces charges of first-degree murder, drive-by shooting and firing a gun at a structure. Doug Georgianni, 51, was fatally shot Sunday as he operated a state photo radar van.
