Community Road Watch
Lancashire Constabulary are looking for volunteers to join their Community Road Watch Scheme.
Community Road Watch involves police working together with local communities at sites where people are worried about road safety. Volunteers are trained by us and work with local officers to address various driving issues including: drivers exceeding the speed limit, use of mobile phones and drivers and passengers not wearing seat belts and/or child restraints. The team monitors and records driver behaviour so that action can then be taken.

Initiatives usually take place during the day Monday – Friday. This opportunity requires some flexibility as you may be required to support road initiatives in Preston, Chorley and West Lancashire.
