Speed Watch Day in Saltash!
Our wonderful Saltash Forum applied to be volunteers for the Community Speed Watch scheme.
Community Speed Watch is operated by Devon and Cornwall Police to help people reduce speeding traffic through their community. The scheme enables volunteers to work within their community to raise awareness of the dangers of speeding and to help control the problem locally.
Members of the Saltash Forum met with Sgt Angela Crow and her team at the local police station.
They got to have a look around the camera safety van and ask questions.
Then they did some hands on training with the equipment outside the police station. 7 drivers were caught speeding and will receive letters!
There will be more training sessions and eventually the group will be able to work from their own ‘patch’. Well done to them for helping to keep their community safe!
