Yardley police to be equipped with handheld ticketing devices
Donations from local businesses paid for e-Citation technology that officials say will keep officers safe and get drivers back on the road more quickly after getting pulled over.
Yardley police Chief Joseph Kelly sat down and calculated approximately how much time his officers would save if they were equipped with digital e-citation software and equipment rather than handwriting each of the 1,200 tickets the department issues during an average year.
Radnor Township Police Use Technology To Speed Up Ticketing Process
RADNOR TOWNSHIP, PA (CBS) — While getting a traffic ticket is hardly enjoyable, the process of issuing one in Radnor Township is getting streamlined.
Gone are the days Radnor Township Police officers have to issue handwritten paper citations, which left room for error and took time to process.
Radnor officers wield new e-citation devices for tickets
Drivers stopped by police in Radnor now get citations almost instantaneously. Radnor is the first municipality in Pennsylvania to use new, handheld e-citation devices made by United Public Safety. While the Radnor police have had devices for parking citations for several years now, these new devices can scan and read drivers’ licenses and owners’ cards along with license tags from both in-state and out-of-state drivers.
United Public Safety Announces the First PA 3 Inch Traffic Citation Issued on the Innovative N5SCAN Mobile Computer
According to company President Joan Young, “We have several PD’s that are currently using our 4 inch e-citation format in vehicle that will now use the N5Scan mobile computer to issue 3 inch citations from motorcycles, bikes and on foot. We knew there had to be a better way to issue a citation than printing and handing three full sheets of paper to a citizen; so we built it, with our most robust user interface and feature set to date.”

Bringing 21st Century Technology to York Beach, Maine
The 21st century is coming to York Beach, Maine this summer, with the help of United Public Safety.
The town, from Long Sands Beach to downtown York Beach, has purchased multiple handheld parking ticket devices from UPsafety as a cost-effective solution for replacing their “end of life-cycle” parking enforcement systems. Visitors will have an easy-to-use, fully modernized parking payment solution, as well.
For most of the area, the old-fashioned parking meters are going away. In their place, new parking kiosks that accept credit cards or cash at any station, and have free pay-by-app capability, will emerge. The town contracted with the German-based company Hectronic – an UPsafety partner – to supply 20 parking kiosks, and they are due to arrive in York soon.
With the new kiosks, parking officers can extract meter information from the Cloud to see how much time remains.
