Community Groups

Colden Common and Twyford Community Speedwatch

Community SpeedWatch allows members of the community to become police support volunteers and take action by helping the police to educate drivers on the speed limits in our Villages.

Volunteers use equipment that can monitor the speed of passing traffic and record the details, later adding them to a database. Vehicle checks will be undertaken by the police and letters will then be sent to the registered keepers advising them of the speed and reminding them of why it is a community concern.

SpeedWatch is an educational volunteer group, whose aim is to be a frequent presence in our villages, to slow traffic down.
