  • CT Lightbars At Night

    I live in NY, but frequently travel into Connecticut. I've noticed that the CSP have small lights in their lightbars that light up a "State Police" logo in the middle of the bar, plus a small red and blue light on the edge of the lightbar. I've noticed that other municipal jobs have similar lights on at night. What is the point of always having the lightbar lit up? Is that a state law? Can the individual officer shut the light off for tactical reasons? I'm really just curious and I know that someone on this forum will have the answers.

    Probably saves a lot of money on graphics.

      The link didn't work for me... It may be my computer though.

        We call them cruising lights... used when you want your presence known but aren't engaged in emergency operations (pursuit, traffic control, emergency response, stealth response, etc). Any setup I've seen they are always able to be turned on/off at the officer's discretion, just like all the other lights.

          Thanks, that answers my question. Seems like a good, especially when you're traveling in the left lane trying to get somewhere somewhat quickly and there's someone doing 5 under the speed limit in front you.

          Firestone, that link didn't work for me either.
