CAMDEN — The village police department is among law enforcement agencies across the state to receive new speed enforcement equipment.

More than $160,000 in state funding was used to buy new radar units for 107 police departments and sheriffs’ offices around New York, according to an announcement by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo Wednesday.

The other area recipient of new equipment was the Little Falls Police Department in Herkimer County.

This is the second year that the state Division of Criminal Justice Services has funded the devices, according to a state announcement highlighting the new units.

“This administration has zero tolerance for reckless driving and this funding will help law enforcement agencies across New York protect our roadways,” said Cuomo.

“It is vital that our police agencies have the means to replace out-of-date tools to help ensure the safety of all New Yorkers,” the governor added.
