Community Speedwatch/ Community Safety

The Speedwatch Team resumed full operations in the Summer, but, unbelievably, despite the long run of dry weather, two watches had to be called off because of rain. The table below shows the latest recorded data and it is disappointing to note that speeds over 50 mph were recorded in both Larkhill Road and Bluebell Road.


The CSW Team were given a real morale booster in late August when both our Beat Manager, Clair Morgan, and, our PCSO Elaine Weeks attended the watch on Larkhill Road.

Also, encouragingly, members of the public often stop by a watch team and convey their thanks for the work being done.

WHAT IS SPEEDWATCH 

 

Reporting of Crime, Disorder and Community Safety Issues

The local Abbey Manor Community Facebook page is a valuable and productive tool for use by our local community for the sharing of information. However, some of the information posted on Facebook, whilst relevant and useful to the local community, could also be far more relevant and productive if passed on to the “Authorities” in a timely manner.
For example, there continues to be a significant number of “crimes” and “disorders” reported and commented on in the local Abbey Manor Community Facebook website, most of which are never formally reported to the Police, who cannot, therefore, take any action.
In cases of crime and disorder it is suggested that any relevant information pertaining to the incident is also conveyed via email to the Somerset & Avon Police Service. Full names and contact details are given elsewhere here in the Brympton Parish Council website.
