Teams are operating in other parts of the district but the Sheringham initiative follows speeding being highlighted as a local concern at a community policing meeting.
Patrols by traffic police found that speeding was more of perception than a reality, but the volunteer teams help to confirm or dispel fears.
Community speed watch spokesman Pete Chapman said scheme, supported by the police, empowered local people to help reduce speeding and be part of the solution.
Anyone interested in the project should contact Police Community Support officer Emma Magee at Sheringham on 0845 456 4567.
