Community Speedwatch - The present Force-wide speeding campaign to continue. Volunteers to help identify areas where speed is a particular problem. These areas to be risk assessed and support be given to set up local Community Speed Watch Schemes.
Volunteers are still needed - Police Community Volunteers are always welcome to help keep police officers on the beat by taking off them some of the duties that they must undertake, for example manning enquiry desks. You can make a real difference.
