The new technology is called a speed trailer, and it was discussed at Wednesday's Citizen Voice Meeting.
The open forum allows community members to hash out issues with local leaders, including economic development, clean up initiatives, and traffic concerns.
Resident Ron Schultz says speeding is a big problem near Oakland School and fears someone will get hurt.
"We travel fast, we go fast, and I don't know what to do about it," said Schultz. It's very risky, and dangerous."
Police Chief Randy McKinley says the new technology should help fix the problem.
"We have a speeding issue. We know that," said McKinley. What we need to do is figure out how to best attack that and do it efficiently."
The $7,000 dollar trailer records traffic pattern data.
Police will begin using it next week, and plan to order more.
