Want To Be A Help To Your Community?!

Councillor Phil Bateman said today “Want to be a help to your community? then read this message from Wednesfield Police.”

If anyone would be interested in joining the West Midlands Police Streetwatch scheme, you can contact PCSO 30536 Ian Kerrigan, who is Wednesfield’s lead officer, he can be contacted on his e-mail –
i.kerrigan@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk , on his work mobile 07391864067 or by dialling 101, then ext 872 3006

In short, this scheme is to encourage residents to take some ownership of where they live and where residents carry out patrols of their own local neighbourhood, noting issues and reporting back to us or direct to the council to highlight problems.

Nobody is expected to challenge any individual and put themselves at risk, in fact exactly the opposite. Issues could be, littering, flytipping, dog fouling, damaged street furniture, suspicious behaviour, and or any other general ASB.

You would be accompanied by an officer initially, but then left to go out as and when you can.

There is a requirement to register and provide details plus undergo a Police National Computer check by ourselves.
