A Virginia State Police spokesperson says it will continue using aerial speed enforcement, despite a report that it would abandon the program.

The spokesperson, Corinne Geller, says Virginia State Police has no plans to retire its fixed-wing aircraft. She says the agency will continue using the Cessna 182 aircraft for aerial speed enforcement, as well as other law enforcement operations around the commonwealth.

Since 2008, Geller says that Virginia State Police have flown six aerial speed enforcement missions that have resulted in 87 summonses.

Geller admitted that aerial speed enforcement has been cut back in recent years because of state budget cuts, decreases in federal funding, and a lack of manpower.
