Educational Programs

In-Car Video
The Dover Police Department has equipped their marked patrol vehicles with in-car video and audio equipment. This is a very key piece of equipment that not only ensures the safety of the Police Officer on the traffic stop by telling the date, time, and name of the officer on the video screen but also has helped in solving citizen complaints that have arisen in the past. We not only use the video to solve complaints but also to ensure our officers maintain their professionalism at all times, and to judge their demeanor and tactics while on the stop.

Request Location for Speed Trailer
Our portable speed trailer is able to accurately display the speed of oncoming vehicles, which is effective in reducing speeding and raising awareness of posted speed limits.  To request the speed trailer be placed on city streets in Dover you can contact us by email Email Chief Kim Wallace or call (931) 232-5907.

Child Safety Seat
Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among children ages 2 to 14, mainly due to the nonuse or improper use of child seats and seat belts.  To schedule an appointment, with an Officer who is a Child Safety Seat Technician for installation and inspection please call (931) 232-5907 or email Email Chief Kim Wallace.


Other Programs
There are other programs the department is involved in such as the Governor’s Highway Safety Office.   The department has won several national and state awards in highway safety.  The department also has a Fatal Vision Class, Bully Prevention Program, and Residential/Business Security Check.  Please visit our Facebook Page for more information.
