Which areas do roads policing officers target?

Decisions on the deployment of Roads Policing Officers is an operational matter for the Chief Constable not the Commissioner.  Roads Policing Officers are deployed to the locations that are identified as providing the highest risk to road safety. Due to the volumes of traffic on the main A roads and M5, this may mean that these roads appear to receive increased enforcement but resources are targeted to areas where risk is highest based on evidence and intelligence, including our rural road network which see the majority of collisions.  

If you are concerned about regular road offences occurring in a specific area within Devon and Cornwall, please contact the police via:
