Motor Vehicle Window Tint Meter Certification Course
A Two-day Workshop for the Massachusetts Police Officer
Sponsored by the Chelmsford Police Department
Location: Chelmsford Police Department, Chelmsford, MA
May 02-03, 2005 8:30am -4:00pm

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, Laser Labs, Inc. and Sergeant Brian F. Chase, (New Hampshire State Police, Ret.) now offer this technical certification course which is "State specific" and dedicated to your laws in Massachusetts. This is the only manufacturer-endorsed Window Tint Meter Certification Course offered in the world!

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? 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?
