Schools wishing to get involved with School Speed Watch should contact their local policing team to make arrangements. Normally this involves children from Year 6, but this can be discussed.
The School Speed Watch scheme can be adapted for other local community groups (ie cadets/scouts etc) for further information please contact your local policing team.
Community Speed Watch volunteers
Community Speed Watch (CSW) volunteers are inducted through our Police Volunteer Programme (PVP). All prospective volunteers are required to complete the PVP application process which includes vetting and for certain roles, health assessment clearance.
- All CSW volunteers will undergo full training from our Speed Watch co-ordinator and will be provided with reflective jackets, signs, stationary and a speed detection device (depending on location and availability). They will be supported by a police officer (PVP support manager) and covered by the force liability insurance.
It is not expected that PVP Volunteers will work a minimum or a set number of hours, we appreciate any time that can be given to the scheme. A few PVP volunteers are given additional training and responsibility in the police station, to administer the process that produces the warning letters.
If you have a speeding problem in your local area
Your first point of contact should be your local policing team. They will be able to advise and guide you through the process depending on what is locally available.
