The Community Speed Watch seeks to promote safer driving in our local communities by educating rather than prosecuting individuals. Volunteers will record the speed of vehicles on the main roads of the village and the data is passed to Bedfordshire Police. If a vehicle is reported the police can take the case further. However prosecution will not be possible from the speedwatch teamís recording. Community Speed Watch requires a group of at least two trained volunteers to operate. Having registered as a volunteer you will be offered a training course run by Bedfordshire Police. Equipment will also be provided. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact either the Clerk to the Parish Council or PCSO 3659 Gill Richardson, Police Community Support Officer. Contact details on the Cranfield Parish Council website.
