POLICE REPORTS and Constable's County
As a result of one of July's on-line Police locality meetings, questions were asked about speeding, an issue affecting almost every parish & town. Of the various means of tackling excess speed, one is a two year pilot project being trialled by Suffolk County Council using Automatic Number Plate Recognition cameras. These are devices which capture the registration of a vehicle exceeding the speed limit in 20mph & 30mph zones, the data from which generates a warning letter to the registered owner. Should the vehicle be captured by ANPR exceeding the speed limit again, the information is passed to Police for targeted enforcement.
The link below is information from the Suffolk Roadsafe Partnership website explaining the pilot and providing a link to a PDF document including an application form for parishes & towns interested in applying for an ANPR.
The Police newsletters are now called Constable's County. These are issued bi-monthly and the last two editions will always be published for you to view.
