Swift & Sure allows male law officers to be certified as General Sessions Judges, and empowered to administer moderate corporal punishment to males of age 18 to 55 for an enormous variety of offenses, with streamlined paperwork.
Since March of 2018, when the program took effect, traffic enforcement is up over 300% and each year posts a larger number of paddlings--over 6,000,000 last year.
In the first year, there were about 13,000 complaints, mostly from college students and bar patrons caught up in mass paddling sweeps, however none of these were found valid and all complainants were sentenced to another spanking. Complaints have been few since.
In order to eliminate abuse, all punishments are videotaped from several angles and can be viewed by the public at the TX Department of Public Safety’s website, which has become extremely popular.
In addition, job satisfaction among police officers is at an all time high. Other states are looking at the program.
