Operation Intrusive launched by Wednesfield Police

New Police operation

Residents in Wednesfield North have today begun receiving letters from Sergeant Tracy Baker outlining details of a new police operation.

“Operation Intrusive” is a three month campaign to tackle what Police call ‘acquisltive crime’ such as burglary, vehicle crime, criminal damage and robbery. Although Wednesfield is not a crime hot spot, seasonal analysis by West Midlands Police suggests that the area may be vulnerable to these kinds of offences between January and March.

To try and prevent offences occurring and catch offenders Police are carrying out both high—visibitity and plain clothes targeted patrols over the next few months. The high visibility patrols are armed at deterring offenders and reassuring members ofthe public.

Police will also be visiting addresses across the area to offer ‘target hardening’, where they hope to improve the security of a building to reduce or minimise the risk of theft. Officers will offer crime prevention advice to residents and discuss how to keep safe and avoid becoming a victim of crime.

Report crime in your area

A great deal of Police intelligence comes from members of the community and Sergeant Baker is appealing to residents asking them to report any crimes they witness or are aware of.

“Anyone with concerns can call Wednesfield Police station at any time on 0345 113 5000 or submit information without leaving your details by calling the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

“There is also the facility to send information to us via our website, however this should not be used to report crime in an emergency.”
