Priorities and Issues
Open / Close
Your neighbourhood team are currently working with the community and partners to address the following:
Youth Anti social behaviour on the Redhouse Estate.Calls have been received from local residents about a group of youths causing a nuisance in the Myatt Avenue and Gretton Crescent area of the Redhouse estate. The youths are being loud and rowdy from 2200hrs onwards and are committing low level ASB inlcuding playing football in the road and congregating around the shops and local pub to the annoyance of residents.
Youth Anti social behaviour on the Redhouse Estate.: Officers from the local neighbourhood team are conducting regular patrols in this area at key times. Details of a number of youths who are believed to part of this group who have caused problems have been obtained and passed on to the ASB unit at Walsall MBC. A domehawk camera is also in place in Myatt Avenue. Neighbourhood officers will continue to patrol this area and deal with and ASB which is being committed. Youth services will also be contacted to establish if any diversionary activities can be put in place for these youths. Since we have conducted regular patrols at this location and the deployment of the domehawk camera we have seen a significant reduction in the number of calls for service at this location.
Anti-social use of vehicles being driven in Brickyard Road.We have received calls from concerned residents regarding the anti-social use of vehicles which are gathering on a sunday evenings at Brickyard Road and street racing. There is a large gathering of vehicles with noisey sound systems and exhausts which cause a general nuisance to the nearby residents.
Anti-social use of vehicles being driven in Brickyard Road.: Officers from the local neighbourhood team along with officers from the Walsall CAPT team attended Brickyard Road on Sunday 11th August and stopped and obtained the details of 13 vehicles who had gathered at this hotspot. One of the drivers who was seen racing has been issued with a section 59 notice. All of the other drivers are being sent warning letters from the police and council ASB unit. Patrols will continue at this location on a Sunday evening and the high court injunction is still being progressed on behalf of Walsall borough by Wolverhampton MBC. The Neighbourhood team together with CAPT officers have continued to conduct regular patrols at this location and as a result we have seen a significant reduction in the number of calls for service. Work is still ongoing with the application for the high court injunction and we will notify residents of results in due course.
How can you get involved?
The Prince's Trust - for 16 to 25 year olds.
West Midlands Police are working closely with the Princes Trust programme and Wolverhampton College to offer a free development course for 16 - 25 year olds.
The course is run from Brownhills police station and lasts for 12 weeks.
The programme is designed to improve and develop skills and offer further education and training to help the attendees find work.
It is a personal development programme which, through practical support including training and teamwork in the community, helps them realise their potential whilst developing their confidence, motivation, communication skills and self esteem.
The students build a portfolio of certificates through various activities, including a week spent taking part in team building challenges. They are also required to take part in a community project, for which they must help raise funding. They practice interview techniques, learn how to write a CV and complete two weeks work experience.
At the end of the course the students deliver a presentation to family and friends which is usually very emotional and a credit to their achievements.
The Team Leaders for Brownhills are PC James Ellingworth and PCSO Karen Baker. Commenting on the programme PC Ellingworth said: &'The students work very hard and gain valuable life experience through the course.&'
&'Through the support given by the Prince's Trust, the young people have new goals and ambitions. It is a pleasure to work with them and see them achieve so much.&'

Set up your own Neighbourhood Watch
Set up your own Neighbourhood Watch, a proven way to reduce crime.
Households in active neighbourhood watch schemes tend to experience less crime as they are more aware of their personal and home security and pay more attention to what is going on in their street.
Regular contact with neighbourhood policing teams brings greater awareness of what is going on in their area. In addition, being part of neighbourhood watch brings other benefits, for example:
'Relay' messages - the relay system is a free automated messaging system that is used to send out crime prevention and other messages to neighbourhood watch co-ordinators.
Access to other services, offered by the Home Office, Safer Walsall Partnership and West Midlands Police
Cheaper home insurance!
Neighbourhood watch street signs available free of charge.
You can be assured of plenty of support from the police and fellow co-ordinators. The amount of work involved is minimal, and setting up a scheme is very easy.
To find out more or to arrange a face to face meeting ring Kevin Pitt on 01922 439103 or email him on email@example.com. You can also visit the Neighbourhood Watch website at www.ourwatch.org.uk for more information.
