Community Speedwatch

Worthing Neighbourhood watch

Register your Interest

Community Speedwatch (CSW) is a national initiative where active members of local communities join with the support of the Police to monitor speeds of vehicles using speed detection devices.

Because you choose your operating times, this is a very flexible volunteering option, equally suited to those who would otherwise find volunteering difficult to fit in to their busy lives.You can join the Worthing Group and find out more, by going to the CSW website at: http://www.communityspeedwatch.org/, or by contacting our local Speedwatch Coordinator, David Wakefield, at: d.wakefield739@btinternet.com

Skills

NO experience is necessary. Volunteers receive appropriate training, and are supported by neighbourhood policing team (NPT) staff.

Volunteers always work in pairs, or more where appropriate and are supplied with suitable Hi-Vis safety wear.  

Benefits

Speedwatch activity is not about interfering with neighbours' behaviour; it is a proactive solution to

  • Improve the safety and quality of life for everyone in the community.
  • Reduce death and injury on the roads
  • Increase public awareness of inappropriate speed

Practical Considerations

Volunteers will normally do no more than a two hour duty period, so there are no fitness requirements other than the ability to stand for the duration, though even that can sometimes be overcome.

When do I need to be available?
