Operation Intrusive

Alert message sent 20/05/2022 13:24:00

Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police

Hello hello hello

Officers in East Birmingham have been working to try and stop some of the problems that we know really annoy you.

People in the area told us they were concerned about anti-social behaviour, poor parking and drug dealing. So we acted.

The Bordesley Green, Washwood Heath, Hodge Hill and Shard End police teams are all working together to target the people causing the problems.

We also worked with the council and officers from our Safer Travel team and the Guardian Taskforce, who specialise in preventing knife crime.

In April alone, 287 fines were issued for poor parking and 44 vehicles were seized for no tax and no insurance. Two of these cars were stolen.

We paid particular attention around shops and park where you told us antisocial behaviour and drug dealing was happening.

We carried out more than 50 searches of parks and other open spaces looking for hidden knives. We recovered eight weapons which will now be destroyed.

While we were on patrol, people told us about nuisance bikes in Bordesley Green. We identified two men matching the descriptions we were given. One is now attending a course to understand the impact of his actions.

A teenager was also arrested on Clodeshall Road when we found a knife and drugs in the car he was in.

We also took an active role in reporting graffiti, dumped rubbish and broken lights to the council.

Sergeant Marc Paxton said: “This work has not taken away from us investigating more serious offences in the area, such as car crime and violence. But by spending a few hours tackling smaller issues that matter to people, we hope people will notice a positive difference.

“So far, we have had really positive feedback so we will spend more time doing this kind of work.”

Thank you for your support.

Your Bordesley Green Neighbourhood Team
