Answered By: 
The Mayor

Community Roadwatch was piloted by TfL funded MPS Safer Transport Teams in the boroughs of Southwark, Lambeth and Islington in 2014, with the aim to identify any operational issues with the scheme, test the speed detection equipment, and create a volunteer database.  The trial focused on capturing information on the operational workings of Community Roadwatch.

In summer 2015 the MPS began the formal roll out of Community Roadwatch.  The MPS will publish an evaluation covering both of these initiatives at the end of the financial year 2015/16.
