Insurance companies making requests for information
If you are from an insurance company and are asking for clarification of a West Midlands Police crime number, it is usually the force code, then 2 letters followed by numbers, a letter, and then finished with the year. For example, 20SH/12345Y/18. If your query relates to a crime number that is not prefixed with 20, this does not relate to West Midlands Police and needs to be directed to the correct force. Requests for this information will be deleted.
If you are from an insurance company seeking clarification that an incident has been reported or asking for a log number, these requests are not compliant with the memorandum of understanding which you are required to comply with paying particular regard to sections 3,4&5 and such requests will be deleted.
If you need further clarification, or if you still need to make a request, please email the Compliance and Disclosure Unit at email@example.com.
