Henry County Police: Slow down in school zones or face speed-camera consequences

Here’s what the new tag-reader speeding camera tickets look like in Henry County. HCPD says cameras are now on all day in school zones, including the hour before and after classes.

McDONOUGH — On Monday the Henry County Police Department issued a warning to motorists not to speed through school zones because new speed cameras have been activated.

Henry County joins several other jurisdictions here and in Clayton County that are placing tag-readers cameras to catch speeders.

According to HCPD, “Cameras are active in the Ola, Stockbridge, Luella, and Union Grove School districts. The camera located at Hampton High is set to go live soon.”

If you go 10 mph above the posted speed limit from one hour before school starts to one hour after school ends, HCPD says, you will get a ticket in the mail.

Anybody who wants to contest the ticket must e-mail schoolzonesafety@co.henry.ga.us with your name, violation number and phone number where an officer can reach you.

The cameras will remain on during school hours.
