Sussex Police’s response to speeding and vehicle noise will be under scrutiny at this month’s Performance & Accountability Meeting (PAM) following an increase in correspondence from the public.

Police & Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne will be ensuring that the force is working to effectively tackle those who break the law and working with partners to improve road safety in the county.

Mrs Bourne said: “Over the last few months I have received a large amount of correspondence from the public about road safety, and especially around motorcycle noise.

“I will be seeking reassurance from the Chief Constable that the force is working to identify and tackle those who flout road safety laws and endanger lives in the process. I will also be ensuring that they are working closely with partners such as Community Speedwatch to improve road safety within the county and make the roads safer for all of us.”

Other topics under discussion include:

  • Reassurance to Sussex communities - Coronavirus
  • HMICFRS – Roads Policing Inspection
  • HMICRFS – National Child Protection Inspection
  • HMICFRS and HMIP – Unannounced Inspection of Police Custody in Sussex
  • Anti-social behaviour
  • Stalking and harassment

There is no PAM in August. The next PAM is on Friday, 18 September at 13:00.
