Camano group hopes to install radar warning system

The Camano Law Enforcement Support Foundation is raising money for a system to warn drivers who are speeding.

CAMANO ISLAND -- Drivers speeding near Camano Island's two state parks may soon get a flashing reminder to slow down.
The Camano Law Enforcement Support Foundation is nearing a fundraising goal to buy a radar speed-reader and display for use on the island.
That's the equipment that shows drivers' speeds, and the posted speed limit, as they drive past.
The foundation plans to give the equipment to the park rangers assigned to Cama Beach State Park and Camano Island State Park, said Earl Barnard, group president and police volunteer.
The foundation raises money to assist Island County sheriff's deputies, park rangers and police volunteers who work on Camano Island.
The radar equipment will cost an estimated $4,000, Barnard said. They're about $1,500 away. Money raised so far has come from community donations and proceeds from the group's annual chili feed.
Shoulders on park roads generally are too narrow for conventional radar trailers, Barnard said. The group eventually hopes to purchase an island-friendly one of those as well.
Donations can be sent to the Camano Law Enforcement Support Foundation, P.O. Box 763, Stanwood, WA 98292.
For more information, call 360-387-9670.
