I am able to provide funding to set up the scheme. The police don’t fund the initial costs of the equipment but will cover the costs for vetting, training and the support for back office work such as holding the database, doing the checks, sending out the letters and analysing the data.
The initial cost can be up to £3,000 which will secure the equipment to monitor speed, high visibility clothing for health and safety purposes and signs. I will be able to provide a grant for that.
I ask that anyone interested in learning more and possibly becoming a volunteer should contact me at [email protected] following which I can provide an application form. This is a really valuable community project and does help slow traffic on our roads. The time spent is up to the group and may vary from a few hours a week to a few hours a month for each volunteer.19
