The Gwinnett County Police Department is back in the radar enforcement business after a state agency Friday lifted sanctions related to a lawsuit between the county and its cities.
The Georgia Department of Community Affairs accepted Gwinnett’s paperwork and reinstated a permit to operate speed detection devices, County Commission Chairwoman Charlotte Nash said. The permit is effective immediately.
Gwinnett hasn’t been able to use radar since Jan. 1, 2011, a sanction the state imposed because Gwinnett and its cities were not able to reach an agreement over who provides and pays for a variety of services. The parties settled that lawsuit in February.
