Cadets out catching speeding drivers in Croxley Green

 Published on: 27th March 2019   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Special officers and cadets from Hertfordshire Police carried out an operation in Croxley Green and Sarratt, teaching drivers a lesson. 

The operation, on Saturday, March 23, was led by two Special Sergeants and a Special Constable with support from five police cadets.

The cadets, aged between 14 and 18, were first given a briefing at Rickmansworth Police Station where they were shown how to operate and calibrate the speed gun. 

They also learned about Traffic Offence Reports (TORs) before heading out to The Green in Croxley Green.

They gave three motorists words of advice on their speed before moving to The Green in nearby Sarratt, where they spoke to a female motorist whose personalised number plate did not conform to DVLA standards. 

Special Sergeant Elaine Colbeck said: “This operation gave the cadets a chance to learn some new skills and they had all mastered the speed gun by the end of the afternoon. It also enabled us to carry out some proactive patrols in a location that has previously been a speeding hotspot.”

“The speed limit in both areas is 30mph however some motorists are often tempted to speed despite it being a residential area. The limits are imposed to keep you safe so please kill your speed and not someone else.”
