Community Speed Watch
Speed WatchAre you concerned about people who drive too fast through the village? Would you like to help change people’s attitudes towards speeding? Would you like to contribute to a safer environment in King’s Sutton? If the answer to any of these questions is “Yes!” then you should be joining the King’s Sutton Community Speed Watch group. Community Speed Watch involves working with the police from time to time to target vehicles speeding through our community.

Volunteers are trained to use handheld speed measuring devices. All those who receive training are covered by public liability insurance and all equipment – including warning signage, speed measuring devices and high visibility jackets – is provided. Volunteers need to be persons who are available occasionally to check vehicle speeds Monday-Friday at some of the following times throughout a single week: 08:30-10:00 in the morning, 16:30-18:00 in the afternoon.

The next training session for Speed Watch volunteers will take place on Saturday March 16, 2013 at Northamptonshire Police HQ. Complete the form below to volunteer!
