Results from a survey conducted by East Cambridgeshire Police have revealed that residents would prioritise speed watch and excess speed if they were handed the task of controlling officers for a two week period.
Detective Chief Inspector Donna Wass’ survey asked residents to “think about the things that have happened to you in the last couple of weeks” and where they would place officers in the next two weeks.
Ten options were available, including people using mobile phones at the wheel, retail crime and anti-social behaviour.
Early figures from the survey suggested that seizing uninsured and untaxed vehicles was residents’ main concern, but final results have revealed that tackling excessive speeding would take top priority.
Speed watch took over 30 per cent of the vote, with burglary dwelling and high visibility reassurance patrols close behind with 15 per cent each.
Following the final result, Sgt Phil Priestley thanked voters via social media and said a second survey is on its way.
He said: “We will be advising you as to where you can expect to see us and the kind of activities that we will be carrying out. We will be asking you where you would particularly like to see us too.
