Enabling members of the community to become police support volunteers and take action against speeding on the roads of concern within their area.
The community scheme can only take place in 20mph and 30mph limits or zones and although managed by local police neighbourhood policing teams, it is run by volunteers.
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.
Funds will be required to set up the scheme. The police don’t fund the initial costs of the equipment but will cover the costs for vetting, training and the support for back office work such as holding the database, doing the checks, sending out the letters and analysing the data.
