Volunteers needed to stop Tideswell speeders

PEOPLE in Tideswell and the surrounding area are being asked to volunteer to help reduce speeding traffic on village roads.

The Tideswell and Area Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team (SNT) are hoping to expand the Community Speed Watch scheme throughout their area and are looking for local volunteers to train to help officers patrol and use radar guns to monitor the speeds of passing traffic.

Letters are then sent to speeding drivers, telling them to respect speed limits or risk a fine. Data recorded will help officers identify locations for speed detection equipment.

The area covered includes Great Longstone, Cressbrook, Little Longstone, Monsal Head, Litton, Wardlow and Wheston.

For more information, contact the team by calling 0345 123 33 33 or emailing bakewell.neighbourhoods@derbyshire.pnn.police.uk.
