EXCLUSIVE: Over 3,600 photo radar tickets have been set for one courtroom on Monday at the exact same time, according to an internal memo sent out to Maricopa County employees Friday afternoon and obtained by CameraFRAUD. (Update: Join us on Monday for an impromptu sign wave / signature gathering… click for details).
The memo highlights concerns regarding security, and even suggests that people may be asked to wait outside if building capacity is reached:
This email is to notify you that West McDowell Justice Court at the Downtown Justice Court Building at 620 West Jackson is anticipating up to 3,600 individuals to appear Monday morning (July 27, 2009) in response to Photo Radar tickets.
Court Security will have additional security staff on site to assist with getting individuals in the building and through security as quickly as possible as well as trying to keep the crowds under control. If the building reaches a capacity issue, individuals will be directed to wait outside in a uniform fashion or return closer to the court time.
Currently, we are also looking to see if any space in the DTJC can be used as a staging area if necessary. Both the Sheriff’s Office and Protective Services have been notified of this matter. If you have any questions, please let me know. Your anticipated cooperation and support on Monday will be greatly appreciated.
A quick look on the County’s website reflects an unusual number of cases for WMJC on Monday. It’s unclear what happened to cause this, but our guess is that Occam’s Razor is finally taking its brutal toll on Redflex / American Traffic Solutions’ greedy scheme.
