The Portland Police Department recently purchased a "Speed Monitoring Awareness Radar Trailer" to promote compliance with speed limits in Town.  This unit is a portable, self-contained speed display unit that is towed to sites experiencing speed related problems.  A specially designed radar is mounted inside the locked trailer, clocking speeds.  Motorists will see their speeds displayed on a highly visible LED display.  The speed limit sign above the display reminds motorist of their speed and alerts them if they are traveling above the posted speed limit.  This speed monitoring trailer will be used in conjunction with police officer enforcement action.

Road Closure:

The Portland Police Department would like to inform the motoring public that Middle Haddam Road between Breezy Corners Road and Penfield Hill Road will be closed to through traffic, Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. beginning Monday, May 4th until further notice.  The road closure is a result of construction in the road limiting lane widths.
