There are a number of initiatives that involve communities working in partnership with local agencies and organisations. We believe these form a key contribution towards keeping the county of Suffolk safe, whilst at the same time re-inforcing the commitment of our communities.

Suffolk Community Speed Watch

Police forces across the country implementing Community Speed Watch (CSW) can show a reduction in overall average speeds, and a significant reduction in drivers travelling well above the speed limit. 

The aim of Suffolk Community Speed Watch is to reduce speeds and make drivers aware that speeding is unacceptable. The aim is NOT to catch as many speeders as possible.  Suffolk Constabulary always welcome Speed Watch volunteers, and if you are interested in joining, or setting up a local Speed Watch scheme where you live, then please contact your Safer Neighbourhood Team nearest to where you live.

What are the benefits?

  • Fewer fatalities and serious injury collisions.
  • Increase in road safety awareness by and for all road users.
  • Enhancing the role of community members as volunteers.
  • Raise awareness of anti-social road use.

Take a look at this leaflet to find out more detail.
