Community Speedwatch Coordinator Volunteer (Ref: 115)
This role will work alongside the Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership (LRSP) county Community Speed Watch (CSW) Coordinator to support, train, and develop CSW groups. Lincolnshire Police and the LRSP are looking to expand the current CSW programme and encourage local people to actively participate in speed reduction.
