The aim is simple:

If you are willing to participate in an interview discussing the community of Handsworth, contact Amila Broom.

Lozells & East Handsworth Ward Gives A Warm Welcome to New Police Sergeant

Posted on 20th November 2012 by

Police in Lozells & East Handsworth have welcomed a new sergeant to the team as the hard work continues to fight crime. Sergeant Kin Devi is now responsible for policing across Lozells & East Handsworth, and will be working with partner agencies and community members to tackle local concerns. Kin has moved to Birmingham from nearby Sandwell where she spent several years in a similar role.

Late night patrols to deter both burglary and anti-social behaviour have stepped up following Kin’s arrival and her team will also be working to reduce drug related crime in the area. Outgoing Sergeant Lucy Bird will continue to support the team and Perry Barr constituency until January when she move onto another role.

Sergeant Devi said: ” I am delighted to be the new police sergeant for Lozells & East Handsworth and look forward to continuing the great work started by Sergeant Bird. Lozells & East Handsworth has a vibrant community and I look forward to working alongside local people to tackle the things that matter most to them. I am fully committed to the principles of neighbourhood policing and want to ensure that people living, visiting or working in Lozells and East Handsworth can do so in a safe and enjoyable environment.”
