Posted on 2nd November 2012 by

Residents of Handsworth, there has been 5 vehicle offences, mainly vehicles getting broken into due to items left on display, for example electrical items and car cd players.

Please ensure you remove all valuables from display and take off faceplates from your cd players. Hotspot areas include – Whateley Road, Montague Road, Mostyn Road and Holly Road. So please take care and ensure your vehicle is safe!

As you may also know that it is getting very dark quick, here is a small list of things you can do to be more safe:

  •  Leave a light on when your out
  •  Ensure all doors and windows are locked
  • Activate an alarm or Install one
  • Fit motion sensor lights
  • Monitor your children whilst playing outside
  • Ensure when you are walking home that you pay full attention to what is happening all around you

BE SAFE. BE PROTECTED.

Police Crime Commissioner Youth Consultation

Posted on 8th October 2012 by

 

Just a few weeks back, I attended a youth conference for the Police Crime Commissioner. The event was very inspiring with over 100 young people from all diverse youth groups (United Kingdom Youth Parliament, Young Disabled Champions and Voice Is Power). Also in attendance was a great mix of current and ex police officers; some including Sir Bishop Welbley and some Police Crime Commissioner candidates.

All the young people that took part in the debate bought their passion and their voice! Some of the key ideas that young people bought up where:

  • A strong relationship and bond their Police Crime Commissioner needs to have with them and their communities
  • Many want a commissioner with a passion for their job, and a good understanding of community needs
  • A leader that is a true representative of the community and a leader who listens to the people

Coming out from that event, it made me want to vote! I wanted to get involved and choose who will represent me and my community. If you ARE eligible and registered to vote. On November 15th who will you vote to be your Police Crime Commissioner?

Before you cast your vote, if you have any questions for candidates that are running, make sure you attend:

‘The Big Debate: Your Chance To Question Our Future Police and Crime Commissioner’.

When: 18 Oct 2012 – 18:30 to 20:00
Where: Handsworth Community Fire Safety Centre,  41 Rookery Road Handsworth,  Birmingham B21 9QU
Come along, have your say and find out what your Crime Commissioner will do to help you!
 The event is FREE so don’t miss out!

A day in the life of a local Police Officer…

Posted on 27th May 2010 by

Written by Paul Hadley – a student at Birmingham City University and first published on his blog.

It’s not very often you get offered the chance to spend the day with your local Police officers, so when the chance came along, I grabbed it with both hands.

The aim of the day was to collect photographs to tell their own story, and try to show how the work that local Police officers do, as part of their daily routine, has a direct impact on the local Handsworth community, addressing the areas of concern to many residents, and of course, keeping updated on developments on a local level by simply listening and talking to people on the streets.
