Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police

Good Morning,

I wanted to send you a message to introduce myself as the new inspector for Sutton and Erdington.

I started in the role last Monday and can already see the challenges and opportunity that lie ahead. I am excited to be given this role and will work hard to play my part in making Sutton and Erdington safer and better places to live, work and visit.

I hope to send you a monthly email with a brief overview of performance - this will include crime figures, incidents of note and share some good news/ success stories.


Things are looking fairly good in terms of overall crime - we measure crime levels April - March , so with only 2 and a bit months to go Sutton overall is showing a near 2% reduction in total recorded crime - this equates to about 75 less victims of crime.

Burglary shows great reductions with a 20% drop, this is 140 less victims. I want to thank you for playing your part in this - I believe the one thing which has the biggest impact here is when we all take individual responsibility and improve security of our homes and cars. You are less likely to be burgled if you have additional measures such as CCTV, anti-snap locks, alarms, crook locks etc.


Erdington unfortunately isn’t doing so well, and is showing a 7.5% increase in crime (year to date) - this equates to 565 extra victims of crime.

Much of this is public place violence which includes assaults and robberies. We are determined to tackle this and have set up a dedicated impact team who will concentrate in a defined area (which is across Erdington and Stockland Green) to tackle much of this violence. We have also for the last month had a daily policing operation which is already producing excellent results and this will continue, I’m confident that overtime we will bring some control around this area not just alone but by working with our partners and active citizens.

I would welcome any suggestions about things you would like me to include in my monthly email.

I look forward to meeting many of you when I start to get out with our teams and to events.
