Community Speedwatch is a scheme to help people reduce traffic speeding through their neighbourhood. Administered by Bedfordshire Police, it enables registered volunteers to work within their community to raise awareness of the dangers of speeding and to help control the problem locally.

Data collected by Community Speedwatch Groups is passed to Bedfordshire Police for any appropriate action.

If you would be interested in joining the group and participating in Speedwatches (it can be as many or as few as you can manage) then contact Juliet Wright at Bedfordshire Police via [email protected], or the local organiser, Phil Deeley via [email protected]ernet.com.
