SANFORD - Central Carolina Community College was one of five schools in North Carolina to achieve a 100 percent Speed Measuring Instrument (SMI) passing achievement from the N.C. Department of Justice's Criminal Justice Education and Training Standards Commission.
The 100 percent, which was achieved from a recent test, was the result of recent students enrolled in the college's Emergency Services Training Center's SMI training program, led by SMI School Director Larry Foster.
"Mr. Foster utilizes competent instructors that are well versed in the SMI program, which in turn enhances the student's ability to perform well in a very stringent training session," said CCCC ESTC Director Dwight Dixon.
Each student must receive a minimum of 32 hours of basic instruction, as well as Motor Skills Performance Testing and a state administered written exam. Training sessions cover the use of Radar, Lidar, and Time Distance devices that many law enforcement agencies use every day.
Dixon said that North Carolina's SMI program is one of the toughest in the nation, and each student must re-certify every three years to remain in compliance. This ensures that officers utilizing SMI equipment follow the protocols and procedures while enforcing motor vehicle laws.
