This week PCs and PCSOs from your Wealden Neighbourhood Policing Teams have been out across various locations on the district, including Wannock and Polegate, conducting vehicle safety checks, and conducting speed checks in areas which have seen a high rate of reporting.

During the week, officers have recorded a number of vehicles exceeding the limit in the locations monitored, drivers who were stopped will either be reported to our Operation Crackdown department, or will have been given words of advice at the roadside.

You are the eyes and ears of your communities, if speeding is an issue in your area please report it to us, all reports help to direct our patrols where we are needed the most and can take appropriate action to respond to your concerns.

You can report it to us online, or to our Operation Crackdown Team by searching ‘Operation Crackdown Sussex’ online. Police will continue to conduct these checks, along with partners and volunteers from Community Speedwatch groups, to enforce and to educate drivers, and help to reduce the numbers of those killed or seriously injured across the Wealden District.
