Alert message sent 07/10/2021 22:17:00

Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police


Dear Residents of Stechford & Yardley North,

Street Watch is a scheme run by the community, for the community in partnership with the police. Street Watch is about being out and about in your local area providing reassurance to the public and helping police to tackle local problems.

You can help the police tackle the low level issues that impact most on your communities and their quality of life.

Street Watch volunteers walk around their community just like any other resident. However, Street Watch members will walk in pairs wearing high visibility jackets, in order to provide visible levels of reassurance, to promote good citizenship, and to increase the feeling of safety.

What it Involves....

A minimum of two hours patrol every month

patrolling must be done in pairs and they must be in possession of a mobile phone

You will have regular contact with your local police team so that team members are aware of current local issues and concerns

Highlighting problems such as anti-social behaviour, graffiti, and environmental problems

Florescent jackets bearing the Street Watch insignia must be worn when you are patrolling

members will be given a short presentation prior to the scheme commencing, outlining their role, expectations and ensuring they fully understand the ethos behind the scheme

We will provide insurance which must be in place before you can begin. Our insurance policy for each Street Watch area can cover 15 people

If you are interested in becoming a member of Street Watch please contact me on the following ...
