Crime Concerns in Wednesfield as PACT Meeting Looms!

As we approach the very first PACT meeting in person! for a very long time due to Covid-19. I thought that I would set out the latest’s crime figures I have for the Wednesfield North and South neighbourhood district. They are West Midlands Police own statistics,as reported through Police UK.

I have been in contact with the West Midlands Crime and Police Commissioner throughout. I am unhappy about a number of issues. I have made that very plain to him. Crime in Wednesfield whilst no where near the worst in the City by a large margin. Nevertheless is seen by these stats to continue to rise. The trend from April 2021 seems to be continued line upwards. I have also written to City of Wolverhampton Chief Executive and the City Leader Cllr Ian Brookfield, as well as the Police with my concerns. Basically we need more Police in Wednesfield.

Here is the statistics that lead me to make this statement. I hope we get some time at the Wednesfield PACT Meeting on the 17th May 2022 at The Hub at Ashmore Park at 6.30pm, to discuss on the night.

I know local people will have other issues of crime of a personal nature, that they are most likely to want to air on the night, direct with the Local Neighbourhood Police team. In the meantime I continue to keep in touch with the City Safer Wolverhampton Partnership, The Leader of the Council and the WMPCC.
