Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police


We seem to be reading more and more in the media these days about knife crime! The thought of seeing your son/daughter in trouble, hurt or even worse is every parent's worst nightmare, so now is a good time to chat to them about knife crime and the terrible impact it will have!

It can take just 30 seconds to fatally stab someone and that 30 seconds WILL change lives! We are urging parents to talk to their children about knife crime, even if they don’t think they should be worried, and have compiled simple guidelines to help you have that conversation; this is attached. You can find more information about this on our website www.west-midlands.police.uk

It is all our responsibility to ensure young people understand they have choices, but also that choices come with consequences.

As a force, we are using extra funding, allocated to us by the Government in April this year, to tackle serious violence in the under 25s with an emphasis on knife crime.

In the meantime, please remain vigilant and report anything you think is suspicious to us; help protect your communities

Call 999 in an emergency (happening now and urgent assistance needed)
Call 101 in a non-emergency (to report damage or pass on information)
Or Live chat with an adviser from 0800 to midnight on www.west-midlands.police.uk
Call Crimestoppers anonymously and free on 0800 555 111
