Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion is enabling more communities in West Mercia to take action against speeding.

The Commissioner is doubling the number of kits available to communities – from 20 to 40 – to encourage more community speed watch groups across Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin.

John Campion said: “I want to empower people within our communities to play a more active role in identifying and also tackling local issues. Speeding is an issue that is often highlighted in our towns and villages and where people want to take the lead in addressing these issues, then I want them to help them.

“Active citizenship can have a major role in creating safer, stronger communities, I pledged to give people the tools they need in order to make a difference and I am delivering on that promise.”

John and his deputy, Tracey Onslow, are taking part in the Community Speed Watch action day in Eardisley and Crowle today (Friday 30 September).
