August Crime Update for Friar Park

Alert message sent 04/09/2019 14:05:00

Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police


Dear Citizen,

So that is it for the summer. The kids are back to school this week. There will be more traffic on the roads at peak times, the nights are drawing in and there are only one hundred and ten shopping days until Christmas. But to lighten the mood some good news!

Over the summer break we traditionally have more demand for our service during a time when many of our colleagues like to take some time off for holidays and childcare responsibilities. This can cause backlogs in responding to calls for service but this year in Sandwell contingency measures were put in place to alleviate these problems and it has worked. Our response to demand has been much quicker and more agile which has led to a better service over the summer period. The Wednesbury team have played their part and dealt with calls for service to support our response colleagues.

But what does a month’s demand look like in Wednesbury? I have broken down the calls into categories and numbers to illustrate the types of calls that we have responded to in August.

In the three Wednesbury wards during August West Midlands Police responded to 932 incidents. These included -

122 reports of crime
115 disorder incidents
98 domestic incidents
54 reports of concerns for an individual’s safety
76 traffic related matters
29 missing person reports
2 unlawful encampments
6 alarms
430 miscellaneous reports

Of these calls 230 required an immediate response and 117 an early response.

In addition to this the neighbourhood team also did their usual job of patrolling, engaging with the community, resolving local issues and addressing longer term problems. We did have some disorders in some of the Wednesbury Town centre pubs in August but the licencing officer has been involved and the pubs have now voluntarily taken additional security measures to prevent further problems.

Safer Six week for Wednesbury when we are out and about with partner organisations getting involved with all sorts of crime prevention, personal safety and community building activities will be starting the week commencing 30th September. Keep an eye out for events happening that week.
