    February 2018. 

    Welcome to the Tamworth Local Policing Team (LPT). I am Chief Inspector Ashley Farrington, the Local Policing Team Commander.

    The period leading up to Christmas saw a great deal of police activity at the busy shopping locations in Tamworth. This was aimed at both providing reassurance as well as being a deterrent for shoplifting. The operation, I am pleased to say, was successful on both fronts.

    Looking forward into 2018, the biggest challenge for us is still vehicle crime, particularly theft from cars. We have done a publicity campaign around locking your car, in two thirds of cases either the car was not locked or there were no apparent explanation how thieves got into the vehicle. We are also encouraging people not to leave wallets or purses in cars, as this is exactly what thieves are after. I am pleased to say that through the campaign and a massive amount of police activity we have seen a 10% reduction in these offences but it still is the biggest crime issue.

    The police have continued to focus on violence and tackling people who carry knives and other weapons. A number of proactive police operations have seen the recovery of swords, machetes and other knives that again is keeping people safer. This will continue as tackling violence is a priority.

    Lastly, the police with other partners, are working closely together to tackle domestic abuse. A new way of coordinating the efforts of those who keep people safe is in place. Tamworth prides itself in such partnerships as there is a desire of all of us to keep people, especially those who are vulnerable, safe.

The information in this section provides an overview of police visibility, split into 2 main officer types – Police Officer (PO) and Police Community Support Officer (PCSO). Other officer types are not included in this data below.

Visibility is calculated by the total number of hours officers spend out in the communities out in the streets, away from police stations.

    The visuals display the time officers spend visible in their communities.

    This data collection is from the officer’s personal handheld radio which sends an update every 5 minutes from booking on shift to booking off shift, so each reading received from the device is classed as 5 minutes visibility.

    Readings can only be taken when the officer is away from the Police Station as the areas are geo-fenced not to record updates when the officer is in the station.

    Standard policing duties where the officer is away from the Police Station such as being located at Custody Suites etc. are not counted in the visibility figures.
