ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - More than 200 police agencies around the state are getting money for new radar units to catch speeders.

The Cuomo administration on Monday said the state will provide $343,000 for 235 police departments and sheriff’s offices to replace old radar units.

State criminal justice officials said many older units were too costly to repair or were too big for new police cruisers. Some of the devices being replaced are 20 years old.

The state helps maintain and repair units for local police agencies.
