Derbyshire Police are looking to establish a community speedwatch in a
number of area's around Glossopdale, including Glossop, Hadfield,
Tintwistle, Gamesley, Charlesworth.
The scheme which has proved successful since been set up in New Mills /
Hayfield involves members of the Safer Neighbourhood Teams working with
local residents. All are trained using speedguns and go to 'hot spots'
identified by the community as having a problem with speeding motorists.
Vehicles speeds are then checked for a period of time (possibly an hour or
so) and letters are written to the keepers/drivers informing them of their
Volunteers are required in all areas of Glossopdale for this initiative, and
if you are interested contact a member of the Safer Neighbourhood Team for
further information on 0345 123 33 33
