Community Speedwatch Volunteers Needed

Published: 18 August 2022

Haddenham Community Speedwatch helps to reduce road speeds throughout the village but can only run thanks to the hard work of volunteers. More volunteers are needed to keep the programme operational and we are urgently seeking a volunteer coordinator.

What is Community Speedwatch?

Community Speedwatch is a Thames Valley Police scheme run in conjunction with local communities where volunteers are trained to use a detection device to monitor the speeds of vehicles travelling through their local area.

The registration numbers of vehicles exceeding the speed limit are stored by Thames Valley Police on a database and a warning letter is issued to the registered vehicle owner. Should the vehicle be identified speeding again, a further letter will be sent to the owner informing them that the information has been passed to Roads Policing (RP) for possible further action.

Interested in volunteering?

Anyone interested in volunteering with speed monitoring or coordination of volunteers should contact the Parish Office.
