Community Speed Watch (CSW) helps local people to address speeding in their communities.

Community Speed Watch brings locals people together to monitor speeding in their communities. All information recorded is passed to the police.

CSW volunteers work closely with Community Policing Teams (CPTs), supported by the Special Constabulary Roads Policing Unit.

Community Speed Watch only takes place where there is an identified speeding issue in a 20mph, 30mph or 40mph speed limits.

All volunteers are trained by Traffic Management Policing Officers to monitor traffic speed and must comply with a code of practice.

Your local CPT can also provide more information about CSW schemes in your area. The CSW Co-ordinator will arrange everything you need to become a CSW volunteer. The schemes are supported by the police.

You can also raise speeding issues with your local area board/Parish Council:

Wiltshire Area Boards

Swindon Borough Council Parish and Town councils list

You will be asked for details, including where exactly the speeding occurs. The issue will be investigated, in the form of a traffic survey to monitor speeding in the area.

If the site meets the criteria for CSW the CSW Co-ordinator based at Wiltshire Police will make contact and help to gather volunteers.
