Police use plastic dummy to deter speeders

(KFOR) An Oklahoma community is getting a lot of attention for the work of one of their officers.

He’s been featured in the Wall Street Journal and on numerous other sites for his ability to deter crime. However, there is something very unusual about this officer.

Officer Waldo is not real.

Waldo is a CPR dummy, and he’s been serving the town of Ada for more than a year.

Every day officers move Waldo and his car to a different location, getting the attention of drivers.

“It’s an effective way to get people’s minds back on driving,” says Sgt. Dewayne Campbell.
