Danbury Community Speedwatch - Volunteers Needed

 

Community SpeedWatch is a traffic monitoring scheme coordinated by Essex Police but managed and run by neighbourhood policing teams and community volunteers.   Volunteers are issued high-visibility jackets, roadside signs and are trained to use the equipment and record the information which is passed onto Essex Police.

The Danbury Speedwatch are local people who want to help make a difference and encourage awareness of the speed that vehicles are travelling through our village.  We usually volunteer for 2/3 hours per month. 

Essex Police are running training sessions for those who would like to volunteer in the coming months.  If you are interested in becoming a community speedwatch volunteer, please contact Debbie Hay on 01245 227258.
