A joint neighbourhood police and community operation to tackle speeding in Burton Joyce took place last month.
and members of the community based themselves on A612 Church Road in the hope
of catching motorists speeding through the village. The fire service also took
part in the day of action and were on hand to offer safety information
regarding the consequences of speeding to any drivers caught in the act.
A police spokesman said: “Our officers taking part in the operation were once again accompanied by local volunteers from the village who offered their time and training and helped make the operation a success. “No offenders were caught due to our presence alone of which acted as a visual deterrent. “A big thank you to all our volunteers and the fire services.”
