Community Speedwatch/ Community Safety

Speedwatch Poster

 

 

 

 


 

The Brympton Community Speedwatch Team has temporarily suspended its operations whilst there are significant road works/closures taking place within Brympton. This, a community led organisation, conducts Speedwatch sessions in the area because the community wants it to. However, conducting sessions whilst there is pressure on the highway network, especially where these works are close to the Speedwatch monitoring points, would probably be non-productive and could have a negative impact in terms of public perception. A decision on when to resume operations will be confirmed at the upcoming AGM.

The Speedwatch team welcomes two new members and continues seeking more volunteers, so if you feel you are able and wish to support it then please make contact.

The 2nd AGM is being held in the Parish Room on Wednesday 14th March 2018, commencing at 7:30 pm. All are welcome.

The latest Speedwatch results are shown in the following table:

The BCSW Team extends its thanks to the Brympton Parish Council for its full support including awarding it the Pride of the Parish Community Award in May of 2016.

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.
