Community Speedwatch

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN JOINING PLEASE SEND THE REQUESTED INFORMATION TO THE CLERK TO clerk@tuxfordtowncouncil.gov.uk WHO WILL THEN COLLATE THE INFORMATION AND PASS IT BACK TO NOTTINGHAMSHIRE POLICE

Nottinghamshire Police have received a lot of vocal support and requests around Community Speed watch and how people become involved within the local communities.

We are now in a position to accept expressions of interest from anyone wishing to become involved in the scheme.

If people are interested can they please complete the following details and reply to this e-mail with the subject "Community Speedwatch Interest"

* Name -

* D.O.B -

* Address -

* Tel –

* Email -

* Parish –

* Interested in being a Co-ordinator? Y / N

Once we have around 10-12 volunteers committed to the cause we will then be in touch with those individuals to organise a training session.

This session will take around 2-3 hours and include a power point input before introduction to the equipment and deployment techniques.

The course will be run by PC 2895 James Pickersgill and PC 3467 Gareth Mitchell however the course location is yet to be confirmed. We will be looking for the availability of a local community hall or village hall hopefully with a screen or projector to link up with our laptop so everyone can see the power point.

Please note

*Upon completion of training the equipment will be stored at Harworth Police Station when not in use. Deployment requests will be dealt with by the above officers and will be for a 7 day period before being returned. This will allow all areas to have suitable access to the kit and everyone has the opportunity to use within their communities.

*Volunteers can work in any Parish / Community when trained, they are not tied to their own village or Town so the group will work together to assist each other for success.

*When the equipment is being used there will be a minimum of 2 persons conducting the checks. Both people will have to be trained in the equipment.

*To ensure smooth running we will be looking at 2 volunteers to become the Co-ordinator and Assistant Co-ordinator for the scheme. These roles will be responsible for the booking of equipment, arranging the teams for deployment, offence recording logs and feeding the results back to the groups and the Officers above. I am a firm believer that good organisation equals success.
