Prince George Community Policing would like to encourage all Parent Advisory Councils in School District 57 to become actively involved in SPEED WATCH.
It is designed to raise public awareness of the actual speeds drivers are traveling. The Speed Watch program is conducted in partnership with ICBC, the RCMP, RCMP Auxiliary members, Community Policing and Prince George volunteers.
Speed Watch checks are operated by trained Auxiliary members and volunteers who include members of Parent Advisory Councils. Using portable radar equipment and an electronic digital board, volunteers monitor speeds. Drivers get an instant readout of their speed, displayed on a readerboard as they pass by. Warning letters are sent to individuals who were recorded traveling at an excessive speed. Speed Watch helps address traffic and speeding problems through:
- Public and community awareness
- Neighbourhood action
- Gathering speed-related data
- Police awareness
For more information on Speed Watch or to inquire about volunteering please contact Community Policing at 250-561-3366.
