Police appeal for volunteers

Have your say

POLICE in Clowne want volunteers to help reduce the number of speeding motorists on the roads.

Clowne Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team is looking to start up a Community Speed Watch scheme.

Community Speed Watch, which is currently running in other areas including Mastin Moor and Brimington, involves local volunteers and officers patrolling together and using radar guns to monitor the speeds of passing traffic.

Letters are then sent to speeding drivers, asking them to respect speed limits.

Motorists are warned that if they continue to speed, they risk getting a fine and that the data recorded by the scheme will help officers identify locations for speed detection equipment.
