Across the West Midlands, all Local Policing Units

will be renamed as “Neighbourhood Policing Units”

(NPUs) and will be responsible for preventing harm

through early intervention and problem solving.


Local commanders will be responsible for local

deployment and prioritisation decisions linked to a

clear local plan focused on preventing harm, overall

performance on their area and closer partnership
