Chief Superintendent Bas Javid, Solihull Police Commander, delivered an excellent talk on 7th March and fielded searching questions about policing from villagers. His outline of recent changes and ability to answer questions with clarity addressed concerns including response to 999 and 101 calls, the closure of Solihull Police Station, the allocation of police resources and Neighbourhood Watch. There was praise of vigilant villagers monitoring offenders resulting in a significant impact on crime. The Chief Superintendent assured all present further feedback on unanswered questions and a personal interest in the future of Neighbourhood and Speed Watch in Hampton-in-Arden. He also encouraged all who live, work or have an interest in the West Midlands, to register on WMNow to get information about local crime alerts and witness appeals.
