Have you ever made a motor vehicle stop and felt a great sense of vulnerability because you could not see the occupants inside? Did the operator roll the window down only enough to hand you their license and registration? Did you ever feel hesitant to take legal action for window tint due to uncertainty and a lack of training? Have you ever been the focus of a legal attack by the defense for lack of knowledge/training regarding window tint and the Window Tint Meter? Legally, could you issue a citation if you could not see inside and/or if you did not know what the actual visible light transmission was in this particular case? Could you issue a citation if the vehicle was from another state? Did you feel uncomfortable as the vehicle left that some other police officer would face the same concerns perhaps with different results? Were you ever embarrassed in court due to a lack of training and knowledge regarding window tint and the window tint meter?

This comprehensive workshop for police officers covers all aspects of motor vehicle window tinting enforcement, and further provides an educational foundation for "Looking beyond the traffic stop". In innumerable cases of felony arrests as the result of a traffic stop for illegal window tint, the defense has attacked the lack of training of the officer in utilizing the window tint meter as a law enforcement tool. As a result, Sergeant Brian F. Chase, (New Hampshire State Police, Ret.) and Laser Labs, Inc. now offer this technical certification course which is "State/Region specific" and dedicated to the laws in your state/region. This is the only tint meter certification course offered through a manufacturer in the world!
