Community Speedwatch is looking for volunteers to help join your local Community Scheme.

Full training will be given for this role by Sussex Police. This is a vital role in helping to reduce anti-social driving and helping to prevent death and injury on our roads.

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. Vehicles exceeding the speed limit are referred to the Police with the aim of educating drivers to reduce their speeds. In cases where education is blatantly ignored and evidence of repeat or excessive offences is collated (even across county borders), enforcement and prosecution follow.


Speeding is not just a local phenomenon - neither is Speedwatch. Speeding continues to be a concern for many ommunities in both rural and urban environments. Therefore, Community Speedwatch is not restricted to villages and rural towns.

Neighbourhood Policing Panels & Parish Councils have an important role to play in developing safer urban communities and the adoption of speedwatch schemes could assist them to more easily achieve their goals.

Volunteers receive appropriate training, and are supported by neighbourhood policing team (NPT) staff.

The scheme aims to cater for the problem of real or perceived speed related offending, and through partnership with the community it is to be used in circumstances that are necessary, justifiable and proportionate in order to:

• REDUCE DEATH AND INJURY ON THE ROADS

• REDUCE THE SPEED OF VEHICLES TO THE SPEED LIMIT

• INCREASE PUBLIC AWARENESS OF INAPPROPRIATE SPEED

• IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR LOCAL COMMUNITIES

What skills do I need?

  • Enjoy working with people, and working as part of a team
  • Demonstrate patience and understanding
  • Be happy to engage with a variety of people of all ages. 
  • Overall, a cheerful personality and a willingness to muck in to make the event a success.
  • Demonstrate commitment to the equality and diversity of the local community
  • Be over 18 years old
