Street Watch is a community-led initiative based on street patrols carried out by members of the public with no police powers.
Groups are managed by a volunteer co-ordinator who keeps a volunteer list and provides advice, guidance and support in consultation with the local police.
Volunteers patrol in pairs and register each patrol on a website. The neighbourhood policing team can look at the website before the patrols take place. If volunteers spot suspicious activity they should report it to the police but not get involved.
Members of Street Watch must be 18 years or older.
If you would like to register your interest to participate in Street Watch please email Streetwatch@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk.
