Partnership Working

Retail BID work closely with West Midlands Police and also have 3 dedicated PCSO’s who work alongside the team with regular patrols of the area.

Alongside daily patrols and sharing intelligence, we also support the Police with regular ‘All Out Days’. The operations have targeted prolific offenders in the city centre, including high value known shop lifters, organised city centre crime, vehicle theft, Criminal Behaviour Order breaches and breach of Community Protection Notices.

Separate ‘All Out Days’ which target anti social behaviour and drugs use in the city centre have also been carried out. A trained drugs dog has patrolled with the teams to identify individuals in possession of drugs.
