Community Speed Watch Volunteers Needed

Community Speed Watch was started in 2007, as an initiative to help communities play an active role in tackling speeding in their villages.

Tunstead and Sco Ruston used to have a speed watch team, but this was disbanded some time ago. Our local Beat Manager (police officer) wishes to restart the speed watch team again. A team consists of a minimum of six people, who will be trained in using the speed measuring equipment, with one member of the team being the coordinator who will hold the equipment and be the main point of contact.

Results of the teams are sent to a central point who will send out letters to the registered keeper of the vehicle that was observed driving over the speed limit. The letter will remind them about the hazards of speeding, and ask them to keep within the speed limits. Persistent offenders will be contacted by the local police engagement officer.

If you wish to join the team of Community Speed Watch Volunteers, please contact the Norfolk Safety Camera Partnership on 01603 276433 or the local district Engagement Officer by dialling 101.

The North Norfolk Police have published a booklet about the scheme. Click the underlined words to download the Community Speed Watch booklet.
