  1. This was the astonishing scene outside a Birmingham hospital as a dozen police officers were taken away from frontline duties looking after prisoners or vulnerable people. A picture of the car park at City Hospital showed three cars and three vans outside early on Thursday. https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/look-crazy-scene-12-police-15265775
  2. Private security staff are set to guard crime scenes in the West Midlands under an initiative designed to free up police officers for catching criminals. Full Story - Birmingham Mail
  3. West Midlands Police was facing a backlog of more than 2,000 ‘open log’ crime calls this week - with unions blaming staffing cuts and an increasing demand. The cash-strapped force had clocked up the ‘unprecedented’ number of unresolved 999 and 101 reports on one day this week. Birmingham Mail Wow, 2,000 worth of calls that have not been dealt with. Not a great service. I don't understand why MPs, MoPs,are not kicking up a huge fuss, its all very well for police to moan about cuts, and have a go at the MayBot, but where are the public? Why are they not moaning to their local MPs? Why are their no marches in support of giving more money to the police? Birmingham is a pretty big place but even those who read the Birmingham Mail, such articles never get many comments. Ignorance is bliss?
  4. West Midlands Police has been warned officers are at “breaking point” after shock figures revealed 700 were off work last year with psychological disorders Full Story - Birmingham Mail This video is used in the above article, has TM ever admitted she was wrong in respect of cutting police numbers? Has she ever admitted that she was wrong to say the police fed were " crying wolf" over police cuts? Or since 2015 has she had her fingers in her ears saying blah blah blah?

    Recruitment Timeline

    Team, Was wondering if anyone knew the current timeline for recruitment, specifically with West Midlands. Had my application in for going on a month and not heard anything back and the application tab still says in Process. No news is good news however was just looking to get a ballpark figure if possible. Thanks in advance B
  6. The hero cop who led armed police during the siege of the Bartons Arms at the height of the Birmingham riots is suing West Midlands Police – after being transferred from the crackshot team to the force’s dog kennels. Full Story - Birmingham Mail
  7. An interesting blog from WMP Traffic Unit about research they have completed on Killed or Serious Injury RTC involving cyclists and why they are now going to be prosecuting more drivers for 'due care and attention' offences https://trafficwmp.wordpress.com/2016/09/09/junction-malfunction-and-a-new-dawn/#comments
  8. West Midlands Police have been accused of ‘belittling’ a pensioner after posting a video which appeared to mock her for making an emergency call. Full Story - Birmingham Mail Anyone offended by this? I can't for the life of me see why people are offended, a campaign to reduce false emergency calls, surely that is a good thong? Not sure the elderly are being picked on, i have seen other videos where the people featured are young uns, shall we be offended by that as well? Some of the comments on that article are from people who appear to live in cloud cuckoo land.

    West Midlands Police PC recruitment 2015

    I thought I'd start this thread due to the lack of WMP forum activity. I had my final interview two weeks ago and I am currently waiting to hear back. I was told there were a number of intakes from November 2015 all the way though to early 2017 depending on how well candidates performed throughout the recruitment process - higher scorers starting first. Is anyone else in a similar position? It seems to me that they're leaving it very late to inform people of success with a potential November intake considering most employers will require a months notice and candidates will need to find living arrangements pretty soon! Anyone currently training with WMP may be able to shed some light on this?
  10. Man found with 38 phones arrested at Libertines gig Thursday 28 January 2016 - Updated: Friday 29 January 2016 A man was arrested at a gig in Birmingham city centre last night (27 January) after 38 mobile phones were found stuffed inside his trousers. He was spotted acting suspiciously by police at the Libertines concert at the Barclaycard Arena, along with another man who tried to get inside the venue. Both of them had their trousers taped closed at the bottom of the legs. The men, aged 30, remain in custody today (28 January) on suspicion of theft, where they continue to be questioned. The arrests formed part of a proactive operation led by Birmingham Police, set up after intelligence suggested gig-goers had been targeted at another of the band’s performances in Manchester. Inspector Gareth Morris, who oversees local policing in the city, said: “It’s an unfortunately reality that large crowds at concerts such as this make rich pickings for career criminals. “We’re hot on the heels of these offenders but you can also reduce your chances of falling victim to such crimes by remaining extra vigilant when attending busy events. “If you think you had your phone taken last night, please get in touch with us and we can check whether or not we have been able to recover it.” People are urged to record details of their mobile phones and other valuables on the national property register at www.immobilise.com, which can help police reunite stolen items with owners. Anyone with information about theft in Birmingham should call police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. https://www.west-midlands.police.uk/latest-news/news2.aspx?id=4084 A great find especially as phones have gone missing in large numbers at multiple gigs of the same artist. I wonder if door staff should be made aware of this. Would they have the power to stop someone with bulging trousers whilst exiting?

Brick thrown from Coventry bridge at police car The brick, described as a coping stone, was deliberately thrown at the police car, West Midlands Police said A brick has been thrown from a bridge, injuring two police officers as it smashed through their patrol car's windscreen. The officers were driving along the Coventry's ring road on their way to an emergency call when the coping stone was thrown late on Sunday. Both policemen were taken to hospital and treated for facial injuries. A West Midlands Police spokesman said he believed the car had been targeted deliberately, The officers, aged 49 and 27, have been discharged from hospital and are spending time at home, West Midlands Police said. Det Insp Stuart Bell said: "Not only did the mindless action of these people cause police officers having to spend a night in hospital , it also meant that someone who desperately needed our help and had dialled 999 was left vulnerable." Anyone with information is asked to contact police. Source: http://m.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-coventry-warwickshire-31489296
