Operation Serve and Protect II

Robbery is a terrifying crime which leaves victims with lasting fears. 

That is why the public tell us time and time again that we should do all that we can to reduce this type of crime. Your local officers have been targeting known offenders every day ensuring that they know we are looking at them. As a result, robbery in Solihull is at a really low level of reporting; we have been increasing our patrols in parks and at transport hubs to ensure maximum visibility and feelings of reassurance.

In order to sustain this downward trend operation Serve & Protect II will add even more focus on those small number of offenders who are causing harm to the communituy. We discuss who we should visit every morning at our morning meeting and staff from our 24/7 response, Offender Management team or the local Neighbourhood Team will visit them.

Over the past seven days, there have been 6 offences of robbery recorded in Solihull which is a reduction on this time last year

Help for victims can be found at VictimSupport

You can keep up to date with Serve and Protect’s progress by keeping an eye out for the operation’s #serveprotectwmp hashtag on Twitter and also by taking the occasional peak at the Serve and Protect blog.

Finally it is you the public we rely on to give us information about who is committing these crimes or where the property is being sold on to. If you have any information you can contact us on 0345 113 5000 or ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

It is your neighbourhood, don't let them get away with it.
