Enabling members of the community to become police support volunteers and take action against speeding on the roads of concern within their area
Volunteers use equipment that can monitor the speed of passing traffic and then record the details, later adding them to a database.
Vehicle checks are then undertaken by the police and letters are then sent to the registered keepers advising them of their speed and reminding them of why it is a community concern
Please note - Community SpeedWatch is an educational scheme, not enforcement.
It is considered as the first tier response to speeding issues.
If a problem persists, it can be escalated to tier two, meaning that enforcement can be undertaken by the police neighbourhood policing teams.
