OFFICERS have revealed plans are in the pipeline for Woodbury residents to become police volunteers in a bid to crackdown on speeding.

After the latest Partners and Communities Together (PACT) meeting revealed speeding was the top concern for residents in the villages, officers carried out a series of speed checks - handing out fines and issuing court appearances in a bid to crackdown on drivers who exceed the speed limit.

The police said Woodbury residents were in the process of becoming police volunteers to run a Community Speed Watch for the village.

In Woodbury the neighbourhood team and traffic officers, with the help of the Exmouth PACT officers, have maintained a steady presence on the B3179, both in the 30mph and 40mph area.

Local officers said the police road casualty reduction officer was in talks with the county council in a bid to forge a way forward to deal with the issue of speeding in this area.
