What is Community Speedwatch (CSW)?

Community Speedwatch is a Devon and Cornwall Police initiative which gives members of the public the opportunity to take a stance against speeding vehicles in their community. The scheme, which is managed and run by Devon and Cornwall Police, enables volunteers to support road policing by monitoring traffic speeds in their local area.  

Community Speedwatch is primarily an education and awareness approach with warning letters being issued to drivers who are observed speeding. In some cases, speed detection officers will accompany Community Speedwatch teams and will be able to take enforcement action against drivers identified as speeding.  

The Commissioner is very supportive of Community Speed Watch and has provided financial and personnel support to the scheme in the past to help enhance the service.  

Further information about Community Speed Watch and details about how to get involved in Community Speed Watch or set a scheme up in your area can be found on the Devon and Cornwall Police website or by emailing
