New laser speed device for Storrington
speed watch scheme
Police Press Release
16 March 2012
Members of the Storrington Community Speed Watch Scheme have been presented with £300 from Horsham District Police to enable them to buy a laser speed device.
The new piece of equipment will be used by members of CSW to monitor vehicles on the roads of Storrington and report offending drivers to the police.
Bernie Isles, from the Storrington CSW, said- "In these times when police resources are being stretched to their limit it is important that the community - which the police strive to protect - shows its community spirit to help them in their efforts to ensure the safety of all residents, particularly the young, elderly and infirm.
"This is precisely what the speedwatch scheme helps them achieve.
"It is gratifying that this spirit has been reciprocated by this generous donation from the police and for this we are extremely grateful - as we are to all those who have donated funds and/or effort to help get this scheme off the ground."
The donation comes from the Police Property Act Fund (PPAF), made up of monies received by the police from property confiscated by order of the court and then sold.
Sergeant Bob Trevis, from the Neighbourhood Policing Team, said- "The community of Storrington has shown that transport issues and especially that of speeding vehicles is a major concern for many residents. The speed watch scheme will provide support to the police and work in partnership to build a safer environment in the town."
