To help improve road safety, Community Speedwatch provides communities with equipment and training to monitor speeding in their area.

Organised by our Office, in partnership with Community Speedwatch UK, speedwatch groups in the Thames Valley are provided with a starter kit on a loan basis, including a speed detection device, to help volunteers assist in the battle against speeding motorists.

Community teams undergo a number of training sessions online and police risk assessments to ensure safety at the roadside.

An online platform allows group-related activities to be self-regulated via an online calendar and also provides vehicle make recognition training. DVLA pre-checks logged registration numbers for authenticity before automatically passing data on to the police for further processing.
