Police Engagement

'Evidence clearly shows that investing in roads policing is a highly effective way of promoting road safety. This is largely because the fear of detection and prosecution deters people from behaving irresponsibly and unlawfully.' - source Cycling UK


In September 2018 the Exeter Cycling Campaign wrote an Open Letter to Shaun Sawyer, the Chief Constable of Devon and Cornwall Police and Alison Hernandez, the Police and Crime Commissioner expressing concern about the way in which police are addressing near misses, intimidation and collisions suffered by people cycling. The letter details the Campaign's concerns and made a series of recommendations. We await a response.
