A community speed watch sign

Police say they hope to re-establish community speed watch groups in areas such as Shenstone and Stonnall.

The scheme sees residents monitor speeds in their areas in partnership with the police.

PCSO Andrea Horsnall said:

“Volunteers are trained by Staffordshire Police and can give as much time as they want to monitoring the traffic and reporting the results, even if it is just a few hours a month it is welcome.

“The speed watch team at police headquarters send out advisory and warning letters to offenders as a result of the information received from local groups.”

Among the areas groups are hoping to be set up are:

  • Birmingham Road and Lynn Lane in Shenstone
  • Wall Heath Lane, Church Road and Cartersfield Road in Stonnall
  • Blake Street in Shenstone Wood End
