During the month of August Lakewood Police will conduct speed emphasis patrols at various locations around the city.
The purpose of the patrols is to increase public safety by reducing the number of drivers speeding through neighborhoods.
The locations were selected after reviewing frequent speed complaint reports filed by residents using the city’s free mobile app, MyLakewood311, and through officer observations.

Drivers traveling above the posted speed limit will be ticketed.
