TRACK EQUIPMENT FOR INSTRUCTORS
Three NAPD track activities require the use of manually operated directional devices. These devices are constructed of aircraft quality aluminum with DuPont Emron painted surfaces. This high quality hardware is built to last for many years. Each device can be broken down into three basic components for easy storage: Four legs (each), table and top piece. NAPD is the sole source manufacturer of these devices. These items are available for purchase:
- Perception/Reaction Exercise Device $800.00
- Lollipop Exercise Device $325.00
- Controlled Stop Exercise Device $575.00
- Set of all three devices $1,700.00
(Note: Controlled Stop Device can be ordered without the table and legs for $400.00)
NOTE: It is advisable to have at least 200 - 12" traffic cones for NAPD training. Whereas most police departments have extra traffic cones available, they are often mismatched or less than ideal for driving course activities. NAPD recommends the use of 12" cones for ease of use and storage, plus they do not contact the upper sheet metal of the vehicles.
In addition to the above, the SUV course requires at least sixteen 28" cones for prescribed exercise layout
